The Japanese carmaker said Tuesday that it will shut down a major manufacturing plant in the English town of Swindon that employs 3,500 people.
Swindon is the only automotive plant in the European Union. Vehicles made in the factory are exported to more than 70 countries.
The restructuring will also involve Honda's operations in Turkey, which currently produces 38,000 Civic sedans per year. That will cease in 2021
