Honda cuts Civic production

2008-10-28 17:52
Honda, Japan's second-largest carmaker, said on Tuesday it would cut output of its Civic compact in the UK from December to meet falling demand in Europe.

The Tokyo-based carmaker will cut UK production of the three- and five-door models of the Civic by 22 000 units, or about 10% from the 228 000 units it had planned to roll out from its UK plants in the year to next March. South Africa imports the Civic hatch from the UK too.

Honda will not scale back production of the four-door Civic shipped to the emerging Russian market.

Earlier this month, the company hammered out a plan to reduce US production of its Odyssey minivan and Pilot SUV by 22 000 units between November and March.
