Honda's first mass-produced model, T360

Honda Motor Co., Ltd. has announced yesterday that the company has gone to its 100 million-unit milestone for its growing automobile production.

As reference, Honda began its vehicle production in 1963 at Saitama Factory with the T360 mini-truck as its first mass-produced model. It was also in the same year when it began the production of S500, a small-sized sports car, at Hamamatsu Factory in Shizuoka Prefecture.

Since then, Honda has expanded its production operations in regions globally, such as Asia, Europe, South America, and China. In the recent years, Honda has pursued for a flexible and mutual complementary production system, to utilize 34 automobile production operations in 18 countries.

54 years later since its T360 production – and through its efforts and initiatives, Honda has reached its production milestone of 100 million units in cumulative car production in September 2016 (not mentioning its motorcycle and power products, which will add to more than 560 million units in total).

Thanks to the support from our customers around the world, Honda was able to deliver 100 million automobiles. The passion of our company founder who wanted to help people in their daily lives and pursue the joy of driving has been inherited by Honda associates as the original starting point of Honda automobile manufacturing. Striving to meet the next 100 million customers, Honda will continue delivering increasingly attractive products,” said president, CEO, and representative director of Honda Motor Co., Ltd. Takahiro Hachigo.
