Honda suspended production March 23 and originally hoped to be back in production by March 31. Honda extended the suspension and hoped to be back in operation by April 7.

“In addition to the impact of COVID-19 on the marketplace, stay-at-home orders in many cities and states prevent consumers in a number of markets from purchasing new vehicles. As a result, Honda must continue to suspend production in order to align product supply with a lack of market demand," Honda said in a release.
