For its 10th-generation Civic, Honda moved to a global platform that allowed us Yanks to finally take a crack at the Civic Type R -- a car that proved to exceed our lofty expectations.
When news broke that Honda may shutter the UK plant where it's built, concern started to spread.
But now, some news might send that concern back to the ether.
Honda will bring North American Civic Hatchback production to North America, Automotive News reports, citing confirmation from Honda CEO Takahiro Hachigo.
"Given our efforts to optimize production allocation and production capacity on a global scale, we have concluded that we will produce the Civic for North America in North America," Hachigo told AN.
It's part of a greater shift in where Honda builds its global vehicles.
