Soichiro Honda: The Beginning of Automotive Efficiency and Reliability
Soichiro Honda started the Honda Motor Company in Japan in 1948 after World War II when fuel and cash were scarce. He wanted to produce an inexpensive mode of transportation. From the humble beginnings of a simple small engine attached to a bicycle frame to the Honda motorcycles of today the transformation has been remarkable. The American Honda Company began in 1949 with the introduction of the C100 Super Cab motorcycle.
The first Honda automobile was introduced to Japan in 1960 but not until 1970 for the United States. The small size made it unpopular to Americans, who were used to larger vehicles. In 1973, however, the affordable and fuel efficient Civic changed many minds.
In 1982, the consistency of reliable and well-built automobiles sent the popularity of the luxurious Accord to the top of the charts by 1989. In addition to the Accord, there is now the Insight, CR-Z and the Civic available in sedans and sporty vehicles. The Civic is also available in hybrid or natural gas models. For more rugged or four wheel drive vehicles there are choices between the Crosstour, CR-V, Pilot and the Ridgeline pickup.
With fuel high efficiency, innovative technology and better safety features it is not surprising that Honda vehicles have become an American favorite.
