GREENSBURG, Ind., Feb. 25, 2010 -- Associates at Honda Manufacturing of Indiana, LLC (HMIN) today produced the 100,000th Civic in Indiana. HMIN began production* on October 9, 2008.

"This milestone is based on the commitment our Honda associates in Indiana make every day to build products of the highest quality for our customers," said Rick Schostek, vice president of HMIN. "This is an important achievement for our entire team."

The Civic was the sixth best selling vehicle in the U.S. in January 2010, and was up 12.1 percent in sales for the month over last year.

Currently, Honda operates one shift with approximately 1,000 associates at the Greensburg plant, producing the popular and fuel-efficient Honda Civic Sedan and Honda Civic GX, the only natural gas vehicle built in America. Engines for the Civic Sedan are built by associates at Honda's engine plant in nearby Anna, Ohio.

HMIN is Honda's seventh auto assembly plant in North America and one of 14 major Honda manufacturing facilities in North America, with two more currently under construction in North Carolina.
