    We all know Honda makes different vehicles and multiple MTOC - (Model,Type,Option and Colour) in various chassis code in many factories around the world. To outline different global markets and to make cars accurately for regional demand they need to classify their parts depending on which country they are indented for. When you are ordering parts or looking up official Honda documents or even looking at online electronic parts catalogue (EPC) you will see these Area Codes are mentioned quite extensively. So what are they and why do I need to know them?

    Honda uses this so the customer get the correct regional part for their car and they are legally compliant to regional variations, this ensure the customer get the best service and correct part from their Honda vehicles . Honda uses this matrix extensively in all it manufacturing & logistic operations whilst assembling and distributing car parts. Since Honda car are made all over and exported all over this matrix is the backbone to Honda operations.
