Honda is one of the most well-known and most popular automakers in the world. Despite this, many people aren’t sure what country the company originates from or where the company builds its cars.

Like many automakers, Honda is an international corporation, so it builds cars in many different places for many different markets. This post, in addition to delving into a brief history of Honda’s origins, will focus on where Honda builds its cars that are slated for the North American market.

Where is Honda From?

Honda is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. The company that is now known as Honda Motor Co., Ltd. was founded by Soichiro Honda in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan, in 1946 and officially incorporated as a business in 1948.

The American Honda Motor Company, which is the automaker’s U.S. subsidiary, was founded in 1959 and initially sold only motorcycles. The first Honda automobile sold in the United States and Canada was the 1970 Honda N600 sedan, which was built in Suzuka, Japan and then shipped to North America.

    I honestly believe that the Japanese have the best engineering in the world.

    I had back in college a 1997 Honda Accord that had 96,000 miles on it. I sold that car for $300.00 to a good friend with 351,000 miles on it, it still ran excellent.

    He drove it from ND to FL upto NY back down to FL and upto MI.

    I never found out how many miles it ended up with in the end.

    I bought a brand new Ford that lasted 99,000 miles.

    I'll never buy anything except Honda/ Acura!
