Production of the all-new 2022 Honda Civic sedan has started at Honda’s plant in Alliston, Ontario, while the upcoming 2022 Civic Hatchback will be produced in the U.S. for the first time ever, at the company’s factory in Greensburg, Indiana.

Honda of Canada Manufacturing in Alliston has been building the Civic continuously for 33 years, and that’s longer than any other plant worldwide that’s currently producing the car. Canada has made 5.3 million of them since 1988, and every Civic sedan sold in Canada today is made in Alliston.

Overall, the U.S. and Canada have produced nearly 11 million units, and Honda said that more than 14.2 million Civics have been sold in North America since the model was introduced for 1973.

The Civic Sedan will be arriving in dealerships in North America this summer, with pricing announced closer to launch.

The 2022 edition marks the Civic’s eleventh generation, and Honda said that all production in North America will use domestic and globally-sourced parts. The Civic’s 2.0L four-cylinder will be made by Honda Canada, while its turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder will come from Honda’s plant in Ohio.

Honda Canada said that, due to pandemic restrictions that prevented engineers travelling from the U.S. and Japan, its Canadian engineers had to take on a larger role in preparing the new sedan for production. This included creating a more rigid body through the extensive use of structural adhesive; the model’s first-ever use of laser brazing to join the roof and body panels; the Civic sedan’s first-ever aluminum roof; a seamless instrument panel surface that required a new production process; and a new honeycomb mesh panel across the instrument panel to hide the air vents.
