A Brief History of Honda
While Orange County drivers have fallen in love with our selection of Honda cars, trucks and SUVs, many people don’t realize that cars weren’t always Honda’s bread and butter. In fact, for the first decade and a half of the company’s history, Honda used to specialize in motorcycles.
The reason this makes sense is that during Honda’s inception in 1948 Japan was both largely in debt and desperate for fuel, leaving Japanese markets interested in an inexpensive, fuel-efficient way to get around. According to Honda’s founder, Soichiro Honda, the answer was in the motor-bike — literally small motor engines attached to a bicycle frame — and Japanese citizens agreed. Since its peak in motorcycle production in 1959, Honda has remained the number one manufacturer of motorcycles in the world.
Honda Car Facts
The mid-sixties was when Honda made the jump over to cars and formula one racing, with the biggest breakthrough for us American car-buyers being the introduction of the Civic during the 1970s. Honda was touted as being a fuel-efficient alternative to our own boxy, lumbering domestic automobiles, a fact which made the Civic a very attractive purchase. Since then Honda has officially become the seventh largest automaker in the world as of 2011, and the forth largest American auto manufacturer as of 2009!
With an eye on innovation in their new models — including the revolutionary Honda Fit EV — Honda is sure to remain an auto-manufacturing superstar, and Orange County drivers can always count on Middletown Honda to be among New York’s finest purveyors of these vehicles.
