Honda Lowers Expected Production of Pilot SUV to No More Than 100,000

December 16, 2001

Honda Motor Co. currently expects to be able toproduce no more than about 100,000 of its new Pilot sport-utility vehicles in 2003, as the Canadian factory where the new truck will be made will continue to make Odyssey minivans and Acura MD-X SUVs at least through the end of March 2003, a spokesman said Nov. 16.Last week, Honda officials said Pilot production could be as high as 120,000 vehicles in 2003, but that forecast was based on all Odyssey output being shifted to Honda's newfactory in Alabama.According to Honda, demand for the Odyssey remains so strong that, at least through early 2003, Honda plans to supplement the Alabama plant's 150,000-vehicle annual capacity with production from the plant in Alliston, Ontario.The Pilot goes into production there in thespring of 2002 and is scheduled to arrive in showrooms next summer.
