2023 Honda Civic Sedan

For the first time in nine years, a new Honda Civic Hybrid is on its way to North America. And it will be built right here in Canada.

Honda announced today that the new sedan model will be produced at its Honda of Canada Manufacturing (HCM) plant in Alliston, Ontario, starting next spring. The Civic Hybrid Hatchback will be built in Greensburg, Indiana.

HCM also produces the regular Civic Sedan, as well as the CR-V and its Hybrid variant. The Civic Hybrid will be powered by a version of Honda’s two-motor hybrid-electric system, which was featured on Wards 10 Best Engines and Propulsion Systems for the Honda Accord Hybrid.

“Our HCM associates are extremely proud to be named the lead North America plant for the new, built in Canada, Civic Hybrid sedan,” says Yoshiyuki Nakazawa, General Manager and Executive Vice President of HCM. “We are celebrating the historic production of our 6 millionth Civic this month and this new Civic Hybrid, which joins the CR-V Hybrid also built at HCM, will be an integral part of Honda’s global electrification plans as we continue to transition Canadian consumers to an electrified future.”

Honda had dropped the hybrid Civic from North America’s lineup in 2015 because of poor sales. The company expects this version to make up more than 40 per cent of all Civic sales in Canada and the US. So far this year, the Accord Hybrid and CR-V Hybrid have made up 20 per cent of all Honda sales here in Canada.
