Honda – From Modesty to Glory. The Japanese Pioneering Brand
The Honda brand was born under unusual circumstances. As Japan was being torn by World War II, its economy was facing a serious challenge. The company managed to get settled quickly, taking advantage of an open spot created by the conflict. From there it got o worldwide fame, growing into the 5th largest vehicle manufacturer on the planet.
Success through Fixing the WWII Destruction
Honda was founded in 1948 by Soichiro Honda. It was a necessary business, as it got to provide the vehicles to replace those destroyed in the war. Many factories were gone and thus the population was in need of a manufacturer to fill the gaps.
A Cheap and Indispensable Car
Considering the circumstances, Honda couldn't have committed to absurd standards. Its goal was to create cars that would serve well a great part of the population and which would be afforded by as many people as possible. Keeping a rather modest standard was what led to the Honda expansion and even bring the band into the US, thus establishing the American Honda Co. Soichiro's cars were not just modest, though. These were examples of new engineering, of more useful and economical solutions which soon took over the world.
Prepared to Face the Changes of Each Decade
In the 1960's, Honda enters the motor sport competitions. Also, the market sees the release of a larger model for the Americans, the Honda Civic. The technology used was perfect to meet the challenges of the 70's, with the new regulations due to the energy crisis. Honda Accord became another hit of the decade.
Conquering America and the Step to Luxury
Honda was the first Japanese car manufacturer to conquer the American land. In 1982 it opens a plant in the US – in Maysville, Ohio. Two more were built in Alabama and South Carolina. In 1986, Honda began producing luxury cars, but without competing with the Europeans and the Americans. The range was named Acura and comprised variations of the already successful models.
Ever since the launch of its better engine, the V-Tec with variable valve control, the company has been interested in smart engine development, also improving safety, pre-crash warning and avoidance systems. In motor sports, Honda constantly aims for the podiums through its motorcycles, which are the direct competitors of the Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha Japanese brands.
