On the last day of March 2012, Honda Automobile (Thailand) officially reopened the Ayutthaya Plant that was forced to close for 6 months following last year’s massive floods.
In December, Honda destroyed 1,055 cars that were damaged in the floods at the plant. It is remarkable getting the devastated plant up and running months ahead of schedule.
As of now, the production at the assembly plant is expected to fully resume by middle of this month. The Honda’s Ayutthaya plant makes Brio, Jazz, City, Civic, Accord and CRV models for the Thailand market and 30 other countries.
As you can see from the photos, the new facelift Honda City is in new production line. This sparks me a question when the Honda City will be facelift in Malaysia?
Honda is also establishing a Honda Thailand Fund to support worthy causes. Under the project, the company will contribute 1,000 baht for every Honda car, 100 baht for every motorcycle and 10 baht for every engine product to the fund. The fund is expected to generate 300 million baht in the first year and will have a target of one billion baht.
Anyhow, check out the video of the New Honda City 2011 too.
