Mexico plant to build Honda Fit for market in US

Thursday, March 29, 2012

Honda Motor has confirmed it will build its Fit small car at its new plant in Mexico for export to the United States and other markets, as it expands its local production footprint to combat the Japanese yen’s profit-eating strength.

The plant, near Celaya, Guanajuato, will begin operation in 2014 with a capacity of 200,000 vehicles a year.

Honda broke ground on the project April 29. The automaker first announced the plant last August but didn't identify the model to be built there.
