GREENSBURG -

American Honda Motor Co. continues to invest in its Greensburg plant as it has announced the factory will be producing the company’s first electrified sport utility vehicle in the U.S. The company says it will invest more than $4 million and add 34 new jobs to support production of the CR-V Hybrid. 

This is not Honda’s first foray into electric autos in the Hoosier state. Last year, the company announced the Honda Insight, the company’s hybrid sedan, would be built at the Greensburg plant, investing more than $30 million in the Decatur County plant.

“The CR-V Hybrid also signifies our direction to bring Honda hybrid-electric technology to all core models and to invest in the production of electrified vehicles in America,” said Henio Arcangeli, senior vice president of Automobile Sales at American Honda Motor Co.

These autos are part of the Honda Electrification Initiative, a target in which two-thirds of its global automobile sales would come from electrified vehicles by 2030. 

The sales launch of the all-new CR-V Hybrid is expected in early 2020, according to the company.

The Greensburg plant also produces the standard CR-V.

    • Hope is Not a Plan

      This is sobering. A local business broker in Indianapolis reports nine out of 10 business owners who want to sell are turned away. Of the one in 10 that does make it past the first analysis to sell, over half of those company owners don’t get the sale price they hope for or believe the business is worth. Bottom line, hope is not a plan if you want to sell your business.
