More than 10,000 customers were put on hold by the US auto industry last week as the US Government said it was going to halt all production of the 2018 Honda Civic, including models from the 2018 and 2019 models.
The Government’s action comes amid mounting pressure to rein in the production of premium cars and trucks.
Honda’s Civic, the only car in the range, was the subject of a class action lawsuit in April and the Government said in June it would take a range of actions including stopping production and halting all production, and ordering recall and recall related costs.
Now the US is in the process of ordering recalls of all Civic models from 2018 to 2019.
It is the first time Honda has stopped production of a new Civic in more than a decade, and comes as Honda has come under increasing pressure to make a comeback.
Civic has been the target of the Government’s actions because of its rising costs and safety record.
This year, Honda plans to start selling the 2018 Civic for about $50,000, according to the latest estimates.
As a result, Honda will have to sell about 15,000 of the Civic over the next three years, or about $2.3 million, which is more than the $1.3 billion cost of the 2017 Civic.
The Government said Honda’s current production lines would be closed, and it ordered recall costs for all of Honda’s 2018 and 2021 models from 2019 to 2022.
According to the Government, the company’s 2019 Civic will cost about $30,000 more than its 2017 model, and the 2019 Civic has a lower price tag.
Honda is currently in talks with the US government to make up the difference.
The government said it would also impose additional recall costs on other Civic models.
But Honda, which makes cars in Japan, said the Government was “making an unprecedented request that the Government halt all future production of Civic and Civic Hybrid vehicles”.
Hondas chief executive officer, Takahiro Hachigo, told reporters the Government should “stop making demands and start taking actions to resolve the problems that exist”.
The US Government has said it is trying to bring down costs in the country by capping the amount automakers can produce.
Hondias production of vehicles such as the Civic and the Civic Hybrid is at about 60,000 a year.
In the United States, there are more than 200,000 vehicles in production, including vehicles from Honda, General Motors, Ford, Toyota, Nissan and others.
Last month, the Government asked automakers to meet their 2020 target for making a new vehicle for every 100,000 cars sold.
