That is why I am looking for feedback, I started reading a story about the Toyota Supra and got sucked into going through multiple stories on Autonews and how they kept going back to their PDF above on product roll out so I figured I would see if others thought this was good or not. Thank Z-06

The Honda products look like more of the boring same.  Toyota finally updated the Tacoma/Tundra and the corresponding SUVs, so that is about time.  That current crop of truck is way outdated.  The Supra is the big news, I do think they need to bring that back, I assume that will be co-developed with BMW, so it could be good, as long as it isn't overweight like most BMWs.

      Honda is cutting back on production at two of its U.S. plants in anticipation of a slide in sales.  The Marysville, Ohio plant and Honda of Indiana are the two plants being affected.  The cuts primarily come to the Accord and Civic built in Marysville. Marysville operates two lines and one shift at Marysville on Line 1 will be suspended temporarily. That line produces the Accord, CR-V, ILX, and TLX, but the cuts there will mostly impact Accord.  Acura production is unchanged at this time.  The CR-V is also produced in Indiana so some production can be shifted from Marysville to there. This news comes after the announcement of the closure of Honda's Swindon UK manufacturing plant which builds the CR-V for Europe and the Honda Civic Hatchback and Civic Type-R for the U.S.
      Honda sales are down 0.9% for the year, but the Accord has slipped 5.9% July YTD, and the Civic which is Honda's second most popular model has slipped 2.1% July YTD. CR-V, which is Honda's biggest seller is also down 0.9%, but a light refresh is in the works for the CR-V and should debut soon.
      Honda says these adjustments are to help maintain Honda's sales discipline and to flex to the shift in market demand away from sedans. Honda has already announced they are looking to trim fat from their model lineup and have fewer regionally specific models. They will also be reducing the number of variations available to one third of what they are today.  These plans are to be completed by 2025.

      Last week we reported that Honda would be closing their UK manufacturing plant in Swindon.  That plant produces Honda Civics and CR-Vs mostly for the European market.  However, in addition to European production, the Swindon plant also produces the Civic Hatchback and Civic Type-R for North America. Production in Swindon is to finish out the model run into 2021.
      Automotive News reports that Honda CEO Takahir Hachigo said "Given out efforts to optimize production allocation and production capacity on a global scale, we have concluded that we will produce the Civic for North America in North America." The North American sourced Honda Civic is built in Alliston, Ontario and Greensburgh Indiana. 
      The Honda Civic hatchback makes up about one third of Civic's 325,760 US sales for 2018.

      Confirming reports from yesterday, Honda has officially announced the closure of its manufacturing facility in Swindon UK as part of a global restructuring at the end of the current products lifecycle in 2021.  The Swindon plant manufactures Honda Civic and Honda CR-V.
      Honda officials insisted that Brexit was not the reason for the closure, but rather global trends in the automotive industry.   A factory in Turkey will also close as part of the restructuring as Honda recenters all EU market manufacturing back to Japan. 
      No changes in production or jobs are expected until the 2021 time frame.
