The NSX goes from dream to realityProduction of a supercar to hit Ohio
The soon-to-arrive Acura NSX hybrid supercar will be built in a brand-new facility in Ohio, USA as confirmed by Honda. This will be the manufacturer’s 3rd facility in Ohio as a result of a $70 million USD investment. The plan for manufacturing was originally hinted at when the concept car was revealed at the 2012 Detroit Autoshow. Production of the NSX is scheduled to begin sometime in 2015.
The new facility, also known as the Performance Manufacturing Center, will be 184,000 square feet within a former automaker’s North American Logistics building and employ 100 associates. It’s located just a few kilometres from the company’s R&D facility and the Marysville facility where the 2014 Accord Hybrid will be built starting this fall.
As Hidenobu Iwata, President and CEO of Honda of America, stated, “The location of this facility is in the midst of one of the greatest collections of engineering and production talent in the world. So it makes sense that we will renew the dream and build this high-tech, supercar in Marysville, Ohio.”
