Feb. 16, 2017 - Honda has started building the CR-V sport utility vehicle at its southeastern Indiana assembly plant.

The company says the Greensburg factory marked the production start Wednesday. Officials announced plans last year to spend $52 million on preparing the factory for the SUV production.

The factory also builds Honda Civic compact cars and has added about 100 jobs to its current 2,400-person workforce.

Honda Manufacturing of Indiana President Bob Nelson says he’s proud that the factory about 50 miles southeast of Indianapolis is now building two of the country’s bestselling vehicles.

The plant opened in 2008 and can now produce about 250,000 vehicles a year.
