Our Factory

Our Factory

Our site spans over 370 acres to the Northeast of Swindon. Having previously been an airfield, Honda bought the site in 1985 and established Honda of the UK Manufacturing. Within twelve months, the site was operational and we started carrying out pre-delivery inspections on engines.

It was realised that there was scope to build engines here on site, and by 1989 we had opened our Engine Plant. In 1992, Car Plant One became fully operational and began producing the Honda Accord. Since then we have gone on to produce the Jazz, CR-V, Civic and Type R.

In 2015, we celebrated production of our three millionth car. In 2017, we launched the tenth generation Civic and the new Civic Type R.

10th Generation Civic

10th Generation Civic

The tenth generation Civic hatchback is Honda’s largest model redevelopment in the company’s history. We currently build and export the Civic to a number of markets across the world. With an assertive new stance and advanced aerodynamics, the all-new Civic hatchback advances design into the next era.

A sleek and swept back silhouette articulates a fresh and distinctive new Honda design direction that conveys a strong and sporty character.

The Civic Type R is Honda’s race car for the road. It fuses provocative design with engineering perfection. This is the philosophy of our iconic car.
