2019 Honda Insight Begins Production in Indiana

The 2019 Honda Insight is poised to make a splash when it hits dealerships nationwide this summer. The stylish hybrid will offer comfortable seating for five, incredible fuel efficiency, and leading-edge technology to deliver an outstanding driving experience. Earlier this month, a major milestone was crossed when mass production began on the 2019 Honda Insight at Honda Manufacturing of Indiana (HMIN).

Isao Matsuzaki, president of Honda Manufacturing of Indiana, had this to say: "The new Honda Insight exemplifies our growing investment in the production of electrified vehicles in America and our associates in Indiana are proud to play a key role in this initiative.”

Altogether, the Honda brand has invested more than $61 million here in the U.S. to support production of the 2019 Honda Insight. $29 million of this is being invested at Honda Transmission Manufacturing of America (HTM) in Ohio to outfit the plant for production of the Honda Insight's twin electric motor unit. At HMIN, $31.5 million will be invested, providing for a new 19,200 square-foot building expansion to accommodate in-house subassembly of the vehicle's front-end module, along with other facility enhancements.

These aren’t the only U.S. facilities that will play a pivotal role in getting the 2019 Honda Insight out to dealerships and drivers. In Marysville, OH, another Honda plant will assemble the hybrid battery pack for the 2019 Honda Insight. This plant is also responsible for assembling the batteries that will be installed in the 2019 Honda Accord Hybrid.  

If you just can’t wait to get behind the wheel of a Honda hybrid vehicle, head into Keyes Honda now to test drive the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid. When reviewing the 2018 Honda Accord hybrid, U.S. News & World Report praised it for its excellent fuel economy, saying that “Not only is [fuel economy] better than every non-hybrid rival, it's also better than almost every hybrid competitor.”
