Honda targets doubling exports from US
DETROIT, Michigan (AFP) - Honda Motor is ramping up production in the United States (US) and expects to double its US-made vehicle exports in the next few years, a senior Honda official said on Wednesday.
Honda will export about 100,000 units this year to markets in Europe, South America and Asia, said Mr Rick Schostek, senior vice-president of Honda of America Manufacturing.
'That number will double in the next couple of years,' he said at an Automotive Press Association event in Detroit.
In 2011, Honda's operations in the US exported 53,000 units outside North America, he said.
