Honda produces the millionth transmission at its plant in Celaya, Mexico

Apr 15, 2019   OEM

Honda Mexico celebrated the milestone of producing one million units of CVT transmissions at its Transmission plant in the manufacturing complex of Celaya, Guanajuato, This comes in less than 4 years since manufacturing operations started at the plant in July 2015.

The construction of the Transmission plant began in 2013 when an additional investment of $470 million was allocated to the new car manufacturing plant that was already under construction on the site. This plant is a key part of Honda's operations in Mexico, since it provides CVT transmissions not only for vehicles manufactured in Mexico, but also for several plants in the US, EU and Canada.

 

The Transmission plant covers an area of more than 65,000 square metres and employs more than 1,000 highly trained associates who produce high quality products with precise engineering, which is key to the performance and efficiency in vehicles.

 

Currently, there are two types of CVT transmissions that are produced at the plant. One of which is mated with the 1.5 litre motors that are installed in Fit and HR-V. The other transmission is currently used in the Civic which is powered by a more capable 2.0 litre engine.

 

Achievements such as these demonstrate that Honda commitment to the Mexico and the key part the country play in the automaker's global production network.
