Honda officials celebrated the production of the 1 millionth vehicle to be exported from the U.S. at the Port of Hueneme Tuesday night as a silver 2013 Honda Accord EX-L Sedan rolled onto a ship bound for South Korea.
For the last six years, Honda has been shipping through the Port of Hueneme, which is the only port it uses on the West Coast.
The vehicle came off the assembly line in Marysville, Ohio last week and associates from the company's plant there, as well as associates from Alabama, Indiana and Southern California, were on hand to see the milestone.
"This is a huge historic day for our company," said company spokesman Jeffrey Smith. "This is the culmination of 25 years of hard work and a symbol of where we're going to be going globally for the next 25-50 years."
