Japan, 1946-



Founded in 1946 by Soichiro Honda as the Honda Research Institute in Hamamatsu, Japan, he first based his works in developing small and efficient combustion engines. Incorporating his company name in 1948, the father and founder of the company have then made his name famous with producing motorcycles, with the original Cub scooter being the most-produced vehicle of all times. A subsidiary was established in the USA in 1959 and started production of motorcycles there in1979 and cars in 1982.

Beginning in 1963, Honda started to manufacture automobiles starting with the T360 kei truck and the S500 roadster.
Ever since, it has specialized in many motorized products including lawn mowers, power generators, tractors, farm equipment and even jets!
Honda is one of the major exporter of Japan, sending its products to many countries, as well as having many factories established outside of Japan, notably in the USA, the UK, Canada…

Different countries and different markets exist and so many Honda cars have been exclusively produced and sold in certain specific countries.
