    Honda has started manufacturing the 2015 Honda Fit at a new, technologically-advanced automobile plant of Honda de Mexico, S.A. de C.V. (HDM). The new plant will increase Honda’s ability to meet demand for fuel-efficient subcompact models from within the North American region.

    Our UKDM Jazz will come from Japan! :Happy:

    Key technologies in this factory include:

    - A high-speed servo stamping press and adoption of a high-speed die change process that increases the efficiency of the stamping process by approximately 40%.

    - An all-new, highly efficient general welder system, which joins the vehicle body panels together, achieves a major reduction in the number of welding robots, while increasing the number of weld points for higher quality and efficiency.

    - A new 3-coat/2-bake, water-based painting process (replacing the traditional 4-coat/3-bake process) to reduce energy consumption during the painting process by approximately 40%, while enhancing paint finish quality.

    - A highly efficient production line intended to reduce the time and space for assembly processes, that includes a reduction in heavy-lifting processes for improved associate ergonomics, an increase of in-plant sub-assembly processes and new strategies that ensure both more efficient and more precise vehicle assembly.

    - LED lighting was installed throughout the plant to reduce energy usage.

    Great news, but you're a hard task manager CJ.

    Not to mention the side effect of drinking all this tea...
    But I won't give up!
