Honda mulls moving U.S.-bound Fit production from Mexico to Japan -sources

TOKYO, Oct 26 (Reuters) - Honda Motor Co is considering shifting production of its U.S.-bound Fit subcompact cars to Japan from Mexico in a few years, partly due to a new North American trade agreement, two people familiar with the deal told Reuters.

Fit cars for export to the United States are now made at Honda’s auto plant in Celaya, Mexico. The Celaya plant also makes HR-V sport utility vehicles (SUVs) for the U.S. market.

A Honda spokesman said the company had not made any decisions on Fit production. (Reporting by Maki Shiraki; Writing by Ritsuko Ando; Editing by William Mallard and Muralikumar Anantharaman)
