Honda has confirmed that both the new Civic hatchback for Europe and the next generation CR-V will be built in Swindon, UK.
In a further boost to Honda’s UK manufacturing business, weekly production will return to normal levels in early September after a period of parts supply interruption following the earthquake and tsunami in Japan earlier this year.
The new Civic will be the ninth generation of the popular hatchback. Honda’s first ever Civic went on sale back in 1972.
Production of the small family car will start later in the year at HUM, ahead of the sales launch in early 2012.
The new CR-V will go on sale in Europe from autumn 2012.
