Honda has delayed the launch of the 2015 Fit due to issues with its new plant in Celaya, Mexico.
The all-new 2015 Honda Fit was supposed to arrive in showrooms in April, but if you’ve driven down to your Honda dealer and noticed it’s not there – you’re not the only one. Honda has delayed the launch of the 2015 Fit due to issues with its new plant in Celaya, Mexico.
Honda has reportedly delayed the 2015 Fit due to some early quality issues and some transport issues. The new Fit is being built at an entirely new factory, so production is ramping up slower than expected. Honda’s engineers reportedly found early deficiencies during the initial quality checks, which has lead to delays on the first wave of assembled cars. Honda says the changes have been made and all the cars now being produced meet the quality standard.

Once the plant is fully up and running it will produce about 200,000 Fits and HR-V crossovers a year for the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
