CINCINNATI (AP) — The new version of Honda’s Acura NSX sports car will be produced inside a former Honda facility in Marysville in central Ohio.
Officials say the new plant at the former North American Logistics facility will employ about 100 skilled workers drawn from current Ohio operations. The $70 million Performance Manufacturing Center adjacent to Honda of America Mfg.’s auto plant in Marysville will cover about 184,000 square feet.
Honda’s third Ohio auto plant will be only a few miles from the Honda R&D Americas Inc. Ohio Center. That center is engineering the Acura NSX for production. The powertrain will be assembled by workers at Honda’s engine plant in Anna.
The NSX was last built in 2005 in Japan, where it had been manufactured since 1990.
