Honda (Honda Motor Company) is a Japanese public multinational conglomerate corporation better known for manufacturing automobiles, motorcycles, power equipment and even aircraft.
The first production car from Honda was the S500 sports car, closely followed by the T360 in October 1963, and the company has since grown to become the world’s largest manufacturers of motorcycles and one of the globe’s favourite automobile manufacturers.
Although Honda is a Japanese company, founded by Soichiro Honda in 1948, Honda hold many manufacturing facilities throughout America and from this vantage point launched their first car, the Honda Accord in 1976. Since its release the Honda Accord soon became a best seller in its class worldwide, with 8 million being sold in the US alone.
By the Mid 90’s Honda totally revolutionised the automobile industry by launching the Honda CR-V, a so-called crossover developed to target those who enjoy a recreational and active lifestyle.
The official company slogan stands for “The Power of Dreams” with its focus on innovation, quality and dependability. Honda’s range is no where near as vast as other vehicle manufacturers, but its sensible range is primarily focused on the family orientated market with popular models such as the Civic, Jazz, CR-V, HR-V.
