Global automotive head Ito said he would review the design overnight, Horikoshi recalled. The next morning, Ito came back and told the team to make the car smaller and cheaper to produce, and complete the redesign by the end of that month.
It was unprecedented," Horikoshi said. To meet Ito's specifications, Horikoshi used cheaper materials and made the car smaller, cutting its length by 45 millimeters and its width by 25 millimeters. He also reduced the wheelbase, the distance between the front and rear axle, by 30 millimeters.
It was cut, cut, cut, and it cheapened our cars. When the model year Civic went on sale init was met with a barrage of criticism.

If you operated a technology center only from an efficiency perspective, you'd kill the place. Which is exactly what happened at Honda. We don't want headquarters people telling engineers what to do," he said. Honda went back to the drawing board. The redesigned model that replaced the Civic was named the North American Car of the Year by car journalists. Ito and Fukui did not respond to questions from Reuters about the Civic.

A former senior executive said the decision to reduce costs was taken in the context of a global economic slowdown. Honda's chief spokesperson, Natsuno Asanuma, said the focus on shareholder value under previous management was "for the sake of the company's future.
Honda's rivals, such as Ford, were not reining in costs to the same degree, Chao said. At the same time as Honda bosses were tightening the budget for the Civic, they were also looking for savings in research and development.
Other car firms were investing heavily in green technology, an area where Honda had already established itself as a leader with the unveiling of its EV Plus battery car inone of the first electric vehicles from a major carmaker. But just as its competitors were investing more, Honda began holding back. Fukui, who became CEO infelt Honda was engaged in too many areas of research, four current and former executives and engineers said.
As a result, Honda scaled back work on plug-in battery electric vehicles and put its faith in the hydrogen-fueled car. By the time Honda turned back to plug-in cars in the late s it had already lost several years to its competitors.Louisville Cardinals vs Kentucky Wildcats 2017-12-29 (Full Game) ᴴᴰ
Honda finally came up with a competitive plug-in car in16 years after its original EV Plus. It is still playing catch up with the likes of Tesla. Fukui did not respond to questions from Reuters. Two former engineers said Fukui was calculating that advanced battery technology would become commoditized and so Honda would be able to buy it in if necessary.
This assumption was correct, the former engineers said. Thomson Reuters For too long Honda has overlooked the potential of its workforce outside Japan, and that has harmed the firm, said Erik Berkman, a former head of Honda's technology unit in the United States, the carmaker's biggest market. Honda's management team, board of directors and operating officers were until recently all male and Japanese.
The company named its first foreign Japanese-Brazilian and first female board members only three years ago.
In the fall ofBerkman gave a speech in Motegi, Japan, at a meeting of Honda engineers and researchers. His message was clear: It was time for Honda to tap the brainpower of all its engineers. Research staff in the United States, some of whom had worked at Honda for more than two decades, were being treated like students, Berkman told an audience of roughlyincluding the company's top leaders, according to a transcript of the speech seen by Reuters.
Many of those in the audience at Motegi, including senior managers, congratulated Berkman on his speech, according to Berkman and two other participants at the meeting. But shortly afterwards Berkman was demoted from his role as Honda's North American technology chief and reassigned to a more junior planning position in another unit. In my mind, it did. I kind of bit the hand that feeds me," he said.
Honda declined to comment on the episode. Berkman said he decided to retire from the company where he had worked for 33 years. Pureblood-ism doesn't cut it. That's our growing consensus. The aim was to produce vehicles with one-third of the defects of mass-produced cars using half the factory space, half the capital, and half the engineering time.
Those efforts, honed over years, elevated the quality and reliability of Japanese cars to the point that by the s consumers in the United States began choosing Japanese cars over U. Today the industry is facing new challenges, however. Artificial intelligence and self-drive cars are forcing carmakers to rethink the way they design and produce vehicles.
