Honda to produce new Acura NSX in central Ohio


CINCINNATI — The new version of Honda’s Acura NSX sports car will be produced inside a former Honda facility in Marysville in central Ohio.

The new plant will be inside the automaker’s former North American Logistics facility. Officials say it will employ about 100 skilled workers drawn from existing Ohio operations. The $70 million plant, called the Performance Manufacturing Center, is adjacent to Honda’s plant in Marysville.

Honda’s third Ohio auto plant will be only a few miles from the Honda R&D Americas Inc. Ohio Center. That center is engineering the Acura NSX for production. The powertrain will be assembled by workers at Honda’s engine plant in Anna.

The NSX was last built in 2005 in Japan, where it had been manufactured since 1990.
