The name Honda perhaps is as much synonymous with quality and innovation as much it is with The Power of Dreams. Given its exciting and path breaking beginning, the journey Honda Motor Company has travelled is one that is fit for a doctoral research. Today, in spite of being a late starter, Honda Motor Company has emerged as the second biggest Japanese auto maker, world’s largest motorcycle manufacturer and world’s largest maker of internal combustion (IC) engines. Apart from automobile and motorcycles, Honda also manufactures marine engines, garden equipment, watercraft and power generators, and more. Honda is a pioneer in robotics and released the first robot, ASIMO, in 2000. How much an integral part of Honda is R&D, is evident from the fact that 5% of its revenue is dedicated towards Research and Development. Honda was one of the first auto makers to recognize the need to customize automobiles based on the needs and desires of people of different countries. Honda’s vehicle specifications vary from country to country and some of the features of their vehicles are exclusive to only one country.
Among the most popular and widely admired vehicles from Honda are the Honda Civic and Honda Accord. Honda Civic is a line of compact cars, popular for having given Toyota Corolla a run for its money. When introduced in 1972, it was introduced as a subcompact car, which was later modified into a compact car. Given its fuel efficiency, Honda Civic went on to become top-selling vehicle in the United States in June 2008, surpassing Ford F-Series, at the onset of recession. Today, Honda Civic is regarded for its fuel efficiency, reliability, environmentally friendliness, performance and sportiness.
Honda Accord is a series of mid-size automobiles, manufactured at multiple locations and sold around the world, and is one of the most reliable vehicles in the world. For fifteen straight years between 1982 and 97, Honda Accord was the best-selling Japanese car in the United States. Honda Accord has been around since 1976. During these days of conflict and hatred among people, the name “Accord” is quite relevant.
The answer to Toyota’s world famous hybrid electric car, Toyota Prius, from Honda is the Honda Insight. Debuted in the year 1999, Honda Insight is the first production vehicle to feature Honda's Integrated Motor Assist system. Today, the five door Honda Insight hatchback is the least expensive hybrid car in the United States.
