The defeated after World War II, Japan was quite far from complete "recovery." By focusing all resources to restore what has been destroyed, the country could hardly fill all the voids created. Japanese car industry was "stunned", many factories had to transform to meet the needs of military vehicles and aircraft engineering.
It was necessary to quickly occupy vacant niches, which appeared after the war and Honda, taking one of them, soon became the 5th largest car manufacturer in the world. Soichiro Honda founded the company in 1948. Time was quite successful, since many factories-manufacturers of cars and motorcycles were destroyed during the war.
By focusing on creating cheap and indispensable vehicle, the Honda engine is added to the bike, thus creating a very efficient means of transportation. Cheap and versatile bike has given a boost to the incredible expansion of Honda. After 10 years, Honda reached American lands and established American Honda Co. World domination continued through well-located subsidiaries and dealer points.
Soichiro, head to scent bloodhounds, felt that Honda will be a big company, and sought to establish a new standard of quality automotive products. brand quickly became synonymous with usefulness and innovative technologies. selling motorcycle division of the company has registered a huge increase in sales, putting forward the Honda on the podium among the producers. And in 1970, Honda became the largest motorcycle manufacturer in the world.
Improved search engine was completed in 1989, when Honda announced the introduction of V-Tec. V-Tec synchronizes the opening and closing of the valve, which increases power at high engine speeds and lowers fuel consumption low. Currently, Honda is taking part in the research engines, improving safety and warning systems and prevention of emergency situations. With regard to their participation in motorsport, the Honda has always sought to maintain its position on the podium, although constantly "stepped on the tail» Japanese manufacturers such as Yamaha, Suzuki and Kawasaki.
Recent improvements in mechanical engineering companies were primarily focused on safety and fuel consumption, subsequently became one of the most important criteria when choosing a car by American buyers. The company's participation in the development of new "clean" cars finally ended with the recent release of the FCX Clarity. "Fed" hydrogen cells, the car does not produce pollutants, only those that are formed from water and oxygen. At a time when Honda does not create a new fuel technology, it just continues to be the largest engine manufacturer in the land, making about 14 million units per year.
