Accord Assembly, Mercedes Plug-In, & Mitsubishi Heritage
Honda is making a big investment in Ohio to bring the 2018 Honda Accord to showrooms. Production is now underway on the 10th generation sedan. The company has announced its investing $267 million to increase manufacturing at the Marysville Auto Plant. That means 300 new jobs. The 2018 Honda Accord is scheduled to be launched this fall.
We’re learning more about the new plug-in hybrid Mercedes-Benz S560e. MotorWeek saw it last week on the floor of the 2017 Frankfurt International Motor Show. The company says an on-board 7.2-kW charger will allow for fast charging. They say the approximate all-electric range is 25 miles. The Mercedes-Benz S560e is expected to go on sale in the U.S. in 2019.
Mitsubishi is preserving memories of the company’s past. They showed employees a completed Mitsubishi Re-Model A. In 1917 the Model-A was the brand’s first production vehicle. The project is in honor of Mitsubishi’s 100th anniversary. The public will get a chance to see it at the Los Angeles Auto Show in December.
