Honda has announced that it became a net exporter in the U.S. for the first time in 2013 – exporting 108,705 U.S.-made Honda and Acura vehicles versus the 88,537 vehicles it imported from Japan. In 2013, Honda achieved record production of automobiles in 2013, both in North America (1,781,213 units) and in the U.S. (1,309,917 units).
“Achieving net exporter status is a natural result of our commitment and investment in the U.S. and North America,” said Tetsuo Iwamura, president & CEO of Honda North America, Inc.

Over the past three years, Honda has invested more than $2.7 billion to expand its U.S. and North American auto production operations. Today nearly 95 percent of the Honda and Acura cars and trucks sold in the U.S. are made locally in North America.
