Honda Motor Company, Ltd. is a Japanese automobile manufacturer that was founded in 1948.


Soichiro Honda had his start in the automotive world at the Art Shokai garage as a mechanic working on race cars.  In 1937, Soichiro Honda founded Tōkai Seiki (Eastern Sea Precision Machine Company) manufacturing piston rings for the Toyota Company.  World War II and the 1945 Mikawa earthquake destroyed the manufacturing plant for the piston rings.  Eventually, the salvageable remains were sold to Toyota.

Soichiro Honda took the proceeds from the sale of Tōkai Seiki and started building motorized bicycles under the name Honda Technical Research Institute.  Honda Technical Research Institute was eventually liquidated, and the funds were used to start the Honda Motor Company.  Honda continued its focus on two-wheel vehicles by building motorcycles.  This eventually led Honda to becoming the world’s largest manufacturer of motorcycles by 1964.

Increasing their presence in the motorized vehicle industry, Honda started producing the T360 mini pick-up truck in August of 1963 and the S500 sports car in October of 1963.  Over the next couple of decades, Honda continued to expand their product offering around the world.

Honda started exporting their cars to the United States in 1973.  The first car was the highly fuel-efficient Honda Civic.  These cars were highly sought after as gas prices were soaring with the energy crisis in full swing.

As the decades continued on, Honda opened manufacturing plants in the United States, launched Acura – its luxury car line, and continues to produce best selling vehicles.
