    For a lot of Accord Owners this comes as a surprise when told the 7th and 8th Generation Accord is not manufactured at Swindon. The 6th Generation Accord was the last Accord which Honda of the UK Manufacturing made in the UK. With the advent of the 7th Generation Accord the production was moved to the city of Sayama in Saitama prefecture.

    The The Sayama Factory. is ingrained into Honda history it started car production in 1964, it produced the Legend, Accord,Odyssey, CR-V,Inspire,Step Wagon, Erishion,Hurido, Stream and the Jazz Hybrid.

    The cars are then shipped to the UK or Gent in Belgium for European deliveries they are sent on large car containers to The Honda Distribution Centre at Avonmouth.

    At the Avonmouth centre the certain factory fitted accessory options are installed as per the orders received form dealers. if the customer wants 18 inch wheel the wheel swaps are done here at the PDI stage. On completion they are shipped across the country by road or by trains to respective dealers.
