Honda announced the restructuring of its production facilities due to the fact that the concern intends to redistribute production in favor of electric vehicles due to the global changes in the automotive industry. Under the “Electric Vision” concept, Honda intends to increase the share of electric power units in Europe by two thirds by 2025; so the company optimizes production by redistributing it in favor of regions with high consumer potential.

With this in mind, Honda department in the UK informs employees about the closure of the automobile factory in Swindon in 2021, as the models are taken out of production. The plant currently produces 150,000 vehicles per year and employs about 3,500 staff, Honda press service reports. The work with the employees, who may be affected by the changes, has already been started. Honda’s European headquarters will remain in the UK.

Global restructuring will also affect Honda’s operation in Turkey. This division produces 38,000 vehicles per year. The company will cease production of the current model of the Civic sedan in 2021 and continue its operation.

According to the company, these measures will not affect the Russian market. All Honda cars shipped to Russia are manufactured in the USA. At the moment, none of the models come from the UK.
