2018 Honda Civic Could Leave US Market For CR-V

By  | 

Production of the 2018 Honda Civic may be moved away from the plant in Indiana in the US and go to Japan. We say this due to the fact that sales of sedans have been falling in the US. The space left at the Indiana plant may then be filled by the Honda CR-V.

The Honda Civic hasn’t been sold in Japan since 2010 but soon this could change as the carmaker is reintroducing it in a bid to boost the image of Honda as being a maker of sporty vehicles with attitude.

It is thought that Honda may build the Honda Civic locally for the market in Japan and they would rethink their product strategy. At the moment many of the Honda Civic sedans are make at the Greensburg plant in Indiana in the US.

Sales of sedans keep slowing down and Honda believes that there could be a much better way to use the plant and this would be to build the Honda CR-V at it. Whether or not this pans out remains to be seen so we are going to have to wait to find out.
