Honda Accelerates Engine Production in China
If you ask any of the auto parts experts at our White Plains, NY location to describe the engines from Honda, they’d likely ramble off an array of adjectives. Inevitably, that list would include words like powerful, efficient and vital. Of course the latter is understandable, the engine is the heart of the machine, but the other two are equally important.
That’s part of the reason why the Big H strives to engineer environmentally-responsible and fun-to-accelerate features under the hood. And, due to their importance and prevalence in popular new Honda models, the Japanese automaker is expanding the production of these parts at their existing ZengCheng plant in China.
To be specific, Honda is opening up a third assembly line to increase the manufacturing of their engines. Targeted to be fully operational by 2015, this investment aims to have an initial output of 120,000 units. Hoping to double that figure rapidly, the Japanese brand projects this added capacity will elevate their overall production to a whopping 1.01 million vehicles a year.
But, we haven’t even gotten to the best part yet. This third line will implement energy-saving techniques. That includes implementing an advanced painting technology and utilizing a 10,000 kilowatt solar power generation system, the largest of its kind in China.
