2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition Sells Out Quickly

2021 Honda Civic Type R | Fayetteville, NC

Around the world, people are sitting in wait to get their hands on the 2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition model – and its current sale-speed reflects that. Recently, Honda put this special-edition model on sale on its Canadian website, and each of the 100 available units sold out within four minutes.

This isn’t the first time this has happened, either. In the United Kingdom, a similar event occurred with each of the 20 units available in the country going to buyers at roughly the same pace, highlighted just how people want to get their hands on this vehicle.

The Type R Limited Edition is currently available for a $1,000 deposit in the United States. It comes with a Phoenix Yellow exterior and a weight reduction to help increase its speed, while also boasting 20-inch BB alloy wheels, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 semi-slick tires, a new teardrop gear knob, and an Alcantara steering wheel.

Only 1,000 Civic Type R Limited Edition models were created to be sold around the world, and 600 will go on sale in the United States later this year. While we’re not sure what the exact pricing this model will have in the United States, we do know that it was listed in the UK for £39,995 – the equivalent of $46,600 USD. Since the US model will be slightly different than the European option, including standard features like an air-conditioning system – it will likely have a similar or slightly higher price tag.

While you wait for the Civic Type R Limited Edition to go on sale, take a look at the online inventory at Bryan Honda to check out the Civic.

Honda Face Shield Donation Helps American Healthcare Workers

Healthcare Workers | Fayetteville, NC

As coronavirus continues to disrupt the world, many healthcare workers are spending their days fighting to keep us safe. To help out essential workers across the United States, Honda recently announced that it donated 70,000 face shields to those on the frontlines – and plants on giving at least 60,000 more.

Honda’s face shield donations were sent to 305 facilities in 45 states. The shields help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Honda produced these shields at the Honda Engineering North America production plant in Marysville, Ohio. The site took existing plastic injection molding equipment to create the clear plastic shields, then combined them with frames created at Honda of Canada Manufacturing.

“It was a comprehensive effort with our Honda design and manufacturing teams working together to quickly solve this challenge,” said Eric Walli, regional planning leader of Honda North America. “We were looking at materials, doing scientific work to understand if what we put in a face shield would be safe for humans to wear, an all of this was occurring as we sought to rapidly begin and then ramp up production.”

Honda has also contributed to preventing COVID-19 in other ways. Along with its face-shield production, the carmaker has turned multiple Honda Odyssey minivans into mobile coronavirus-testing transport vans in Detroit.

All of us at Bryan Honda are proud to be a part of the Honda family, and we hope you’ll join us in thanking it for its efforts to protect public health.
