Honda to New Build Plant for High-End Engines

Those who've criticized Honda for not having sufficient large-displacement engines in its line may have less to balk about in coming years. The company's looking to build a new factory specifically for its high-end powerplants including hybrid-drive systems and the new V10 the company's CEO said will power its next-generation NSX. The new, high-tech plant, which could be built in the Tokyo suburb of Yorii, Saitama Prefecture, will likely also take over some vehicle production from the company's aging Sayama factory. It'll be part of a plan to increase output of products destined for North America, not the domestic market. Did someone say V8 Ridgeline?
