Honda Motor Co. announced on Wednesday that by the end of 2001, it will increase its annual production capacity in the United States and Canada to more than 1 million vehicles from the current level of 790,000 units.

Since Honda already has a plan to add a production capacity of 120,000 units to its plant in Canada next fall, the total production capacity in North America will rise to 910,000 units by the end of 1998. “We expect that the strong demand for Honda vehicles in North America will continue, so we will expand our production there,” Honda President Nobuhiko Kawamoto told a news conference.
