    European production up 66.4% for April '14 vs April '13, but still -3% for YTD.
    What happened in April ?
    Were they all off last year ?

    66.4 percent in context only equates to roughly 5000 units to be fair. Looking at the YTD values I assume that production has quarterly figures to hit rather than monthly so as long as they produce 50-60k per quarter then its fine.

    Another guess would be fiscal year ends March for Honda so they decided to ramp up production for the next year?
