Honda begins automobile production in Ghana




Honda Manufacturing Ghana (HMG) marked a significant milestone with a ceremony inaugurating automobile production at its Tema plant. This venture, the second of its kind in Africa after Nigeria, underscores Honda’s commitment to the region’s burgeoning automotive market.


Commencing operations with an initial annual capacity of 500 units, the plant is believed to engage in SKD (Semi-Knocked Down) assembly utilizing imported kits. The production line kicked off with the assembly of the HR-V small SUV in December 2023.


Recognising the potential of West Africa as a growth hub, Honda has strategically expanded its footprint across Nigeria, Ghana, Benin, and Cote d’Ivoire. The company’s involvement in the region dates back to 2013 when it established a local subsidiary, subsequently commencing assembly operations in 2015.


Ghana, initially served through distributors in 1997, witnessed the establishment of a local office in 2019, paving the way for Honda’s direct involvement in the country’s automotive landscape.


In a statement, Honda expressed its optimism about the venture, emphasizing the significance of establishing a local subsidiary and commencing independent production, albeit at modest volume levels.
