Production of the 2016 Civic Sedan has begun in Alliston, Ontario!
New Civic's are expected to begin showing up at dealerships across Canada and the US by the end of October/early November.
“Civic is a vehicle that Canadians have grown to trust. This tenth generation model will continue to set a new benchmark in the compact class with fun-to-drive performance, fuel efficiency and safety performance, together with a new level of refinement,” said Jerry Chenkin, president and CEO, Honda Canada Inc. “Canadians can also take pride in knowing that every Civic coupe, sedan and Si model sold in Canada is made right here in Ontario, for Canadians, by Canadians.”
And Canada has every right to be proud, Alliston is the lead plant globally. Meaning they are not only the first facility to spool up production, but also the facility that develops processes and technologies that will be adopted by the 11 other Civic manufacturing facilities.
“Our team also set a new benchmark, taking on the incredible challenge of being the lead plant for the global launch of this new Civic, and we’re committed to delivering world-class Civic quality for our customers here in Canada and around the world,” said Dan Smith, president of Honda of Canada Mfg.
