COVID-19 pandemic: Honda to suspend production at North American plants for six days from 23 March


Honda's transmission and engine plants in North America will suspend production for the same time period

Honda has announced plans to suspend production activities at its plants in North America from next week (23 March) for six days in response to expected decline in vehicle demand due to the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the automaker said in a press release on 18 March. The company will close operations at vehicle manufacturing plants in Ohio, Indiana, Alabama, the US; Ontario, Canada; and Celaya, Mexico. Along with the vehicle production plants, Honda will suspend manufacturing operation at its engine and transmission plants in these countries during the same time. The company expects to resume production at its all North American plants on 31 March.
