Honda on Tuesday (3) began assembling the transmission assembly for some of its cars in Itajai, Santa Catarina.
According to the Japanese brand, “the initiative is in line with the company’s ongoing studies with the aim of adding more flexibility, efficiency and competitiveness to its operations.”
Once assembled, the transmission assembly goes to the Sumaré unit, to be integrated into the engine, and later to the Itirapina plant (SP), where Honda cars are produced.
The Itajaí’s assembled transmission will power the 1.5L DOHC i-VETEC direct-injection engine, from the City sedan and slot models marketed in Brazil, as well as the export-oriented petrol engine.
The operation will also combine the recently announced new HR-V powertrain, which will be marketed in Brazil, starting in August 2022, in 1.5 DI DOHC i-VTEC and 1.5 Turbo Flex engines.
“With this configuration, the operation offers gains in agility in the parts import process and efficiency in transmission assembly. The port and road structure in Itajai City meets Honda’s current needs. We are confident in the partnerships established in Santa Catarina, which will allow us to create a stable flow in our supply chain,” comments Otavio Mizikami, Industrial Vice President of Honda cars From Brazil, in a published note.
