History of Honda

The Honda brand started as Honda Motor Co., Ltd. in 1949 by Soichiro Honda and Takeo Fijisawa. The company's first original design and product was a motorcycle and eventually made its way across the pond from Japan to Los Angeles in 1959 where the roots were planted for a groundbreaking automotive company to take off. In less than a decade, the automaker sold one million motorcycles-and changed the face of design and engineering within the marketplace. The brand's first car-the Honda N600-was sold in 1969 in the U.S. and shortly after, in 1974, the Honda brand released the CVCC engine in its Honda Civic, which was the first vehicle to meet strict emission standards. With that legacy, the company continued to produce new vehicles and models to keep up with consumer demands, such as the Honda Accord sedan and the luxurious Acura.

History of the Models from Honda

We already mentioned that the Honda brand started off as a motorbike company. They certainly still feature impressive models if that's what you're interested in. But the automotive world has been significantly improved thanks to the company's contributions to the industry. The brand's earliest innovation was the groundbreaking CVCC engine that was debuted in the Honda Civic in 1974. It was innovation that was ahead of its time. Not soon after, did the most popular Honda vehicle make its way into the marketplace. The Honda Accord started as a hatchback, but its new design as a sedan swept the nation. It's the best-selling passenger car in America, with American car buyers purchasing more than 12.5 million. When you want to see what all of the buzz is about, you will see that taking the time for a test drive at your local Los Angeles Honda dealership will be all that you need to show you the craftsmanship, style and true joy that these vehicles encompass.
