TOKYO (AP) - Honda Motor Co. says it's cutting production in Japan and North America by an additional 50,000 vehicles amid a severe slump in global sales.
Japan's No. 2 automaker says output in North America will fall by 29,000 units, affecting Honda's three plants in the region -- Lincoln, Alabama; Ontario, Canada; and Marysville/East Liberty, Ohio.
Due to the production cuts, Honda's overall output in North America will drop by 12 percent to 1.26 million units in the current fiscal year ending March 31.
The Alabama factories roll out the Accord sedan and Odyssey minivan, while the Ontario plant makes the popular Civic.
