American Honda Motor Corp., Inc. announced today that it has renewed its contract with GEICO Honda for an additional three years, ensuring that the Factory Connection-run program will continue running Honda’s factory-supported 250 team through the 2017 season.

Five years later, Factory Connection took over Honda’s satellite team, which has enjoyed consistent success ever since, earning nine titles with Justin Barcia, Justin Bogle, Trey Canard, Wil Hahn, Travis Preston and Eli Tomac. For the 2015 AMA Supercross and Motocross season, the Mike LaRocco-managed GEICO Honda team’s 250 effort comprises Matt Bisceglia, Bogle, R.J. Hampshire and Jordon Smith, all campaigning Honda CRF250R machinery.

“We’re very pleased to extend our partnership with GEICO Honda,” said Ray Conway, Director of Racing at American Honda. “We’ve achieved a lot together over the years, and the team continues to demonstrate that it is second to none in terms of professionalism and capability.

It’s an honor to represent Honda and to consistently put the brand on the podium. They have the best motorcycles in the business. We truly feel that we have two of the best names in the industry with GEICO and Honda.”

Honda Customer Service Manager is Who Makes a Honda

Honda today unveiled the newest associate profile in its popular 12-part What Makes a Honda is Who Makes a Honda video series. Cynthia Simons, who is an assistant manager at the Customer Support Center in Chino, California is featured not only for her commitment to customers, but her commitment to the community.

Simons, who serves as part of the national customer support network for Honda and Acura owners, gives back to the community via the Cynthia’s Heart Foundation, often partnering with other Honda associates to provide food and household items for the less fortunate.

Simons first developed the idea after experiencing an outpouring of support from her friends and co-workers as she fought a successful battle against cancer. The care shown to her and her family, sparked her not only to give, but to encourage others to help however possible.

“The goal we have is not only to be able to give back to those in need, but also to show that everyone has the ability to give back, no matter how they can contribute,” Simons said. “Little becomes much when it is placed in the hands of someone with nothing.”

Simons, who is also an accomplished gospel singer, started as a contractor with Honda and soon found that her personal philosophies were a perfect fit with the Honda tenets that have been in place since the company’s early years.

“What was most impressive to me is that a company as large as Honda would have respect for the individual as part of its Honda philosophy,” Simons said. “Respect for the individual is so important because we have to have that same spirit with the customers every day.”

The What Makes a Honda is Who Makes a Honda video series focuses on Honda’s commitment to innovation, inclusion, a youthful spirit and respect for the individual – core tenets of Honda’s approach to business that work equally well in the community. In addition, the videos spotlight the diverse career opportunities that exist within Honda, while also showcasing inspiring ways these associates engage in their communities.

The What Makes a Honda is Who Makes a Honda series will run on Honda’s YouTube channel athttp://www.youtube.com/Honda.

Wind Turbines Outperforming Expectations at Honda Transmission Plant

Two turbines have exceeded power projections in first six months of operation

Just six months after the landmark installation of two power-producing wind turbines at Honda Transmission Mfg. of America, Inc., the turbines are producing more renewable, low emissions electrical power than was anticipated when the towers went into operation in January.

The wind turbines have exceeded the projected power output figures by 6.3 percent, and have contributed toward reducing the CO2 emissions of power production, helping Honda reach its voluntary goals to reduce the environmental impact of its products and manufacturing operations by 2020.  This includes a 30 percent reduction in CO2 emissions from Honda products, and significant CO2 reductions from the company’s plants and other operations, compared with year 2000 levels.

The two turbines, standing 260 feet tall with 160-foot blades, were initially projected to produce upwards of 10,000 megawatt hours (MWH) of electricity per year, accounting for approximately 10 percent of the plant’s annual power needs. The turbines have outperformed company projections in four of the six months since operation began. At their highest output, the turbines provided 16.26 percent of the plant’s power requirements for the month of April.

“We are extremely pleased with the performance of the wind turbines’ production over their first six months,” said Gary Hand, Vice President of Honda Transmission Mfg. of America.  “The turbines’ operation has exceeded the projections established during the project development.”

The installation of the turbines makes the Russells Point, Ohio plant the first major automotive facility in the United States to receive a substantial amount of its power from on-site wind turbines. The project was developed and installed by Juhl Energy (OTCQB: JUHL) from Pipestone, Minnesota. The two turbines are owned by ConEdison Solutions.

“We are pleased to observe the performance of the two on-site wind turbines are achieving results over and above what Honda had anticipated. From the outset, we were confident that the site location selected would allow the GE turbines to produce a significant amount of the facility’s’ energy requirements,” stated Tyler Juhl, Vice President of Operations for Juhl Energy.”

“ConEdison Solutions takes tremendous pride in our commitment to customers, and we are proud to be helping Honda implement its innovative energy program at Russells Point,” said Michael W. Gibson, Vice President of Energy Services at ConEdison Solutions. “With this initiative, Honda has set an excellent example for the American manufacturing sector, and we are gratified that they have been pleased with its success.”

To achieve their new environmental targets, Honda is accelerating its efforts to advance the environmental performance of its products, and its operations throughout North America.  The wind turbine project is among a number of other initiatives at Honda plants to reduce energy use and waste from manufacturing operations.

Honda Environmental Leadership
Based on its vision of “Blue Skies for our Children,” Honda is working to advance technologies that address society’s environmental and energy concerns through a diverse lineup of products and technologies, including more fuel-efficient gasoline engines, natural gas, hybrids, plug-in hybrids, battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs).

Today, Honda is targeting a 30-percent reduction in CO2 emissions from its U.S. automobile product lineup by 2020, compared to 2000 levels. In pursuit of its vision for a zero-carbon future, the company is advancing electromotive technologies in many forms, and will introduce an advanced new fuel cell car in 2015.

In keeping with its commitment to produce vehicles with the lowest CO2 emissions at plants with the smallest environmental footprint, the company is broadly addressing emissions, energy, water use and waste in all phases of its products life cycles.  In the manufacturing realm, this includes a 95 percent reduction in waste sent to landfills in North America.  Honda is working to extend its “green factory” and “green purchasing” initiatives to its more than 650 parts suppliers in North America and is also pursuing more environmentally responsible business practices among its U.S. dealers.

Honda is also demonstrating its vision for zero-carbon mobility and living with the creation of the Honda Smart Home US, in Davis, California, which was opened in early 2014 and is designed to operate with half the energy use and CO2 emissions of a typical home in that region.

About Honda
Honda (NYSE: HMC) established operations in America in 1959 and now employs more than 39,000 associates in its North American sales, R&D and manufacturing operations with total capital investment in North America exceeding $22 billion.

In 2013, more than 94 percent of the Honda and Acura automobiles sold in the U.S. were produced in North America. Those plants today manufacture 11 different models, including four passenger cars and seven light trucks using domestic and globally sourced parts.  A fifth U.S. auto plant, the Performance Manufacturing Center, is under construction in Marysville, Ohio, and next year will become the exclusive global production location for the next generation Acura NSX supercar.

Honda also operates 16 major research and development centers in the U.S. with the capacity to fully design, develop and engineer many of the products Honda produces in North America.
