This statistic represents the worldwide number of Honda employees from the fiscal year of 2002 to the fiscal year of 2013. In the fiscal year of 2013, Honda’s workforce rose to 190,338 people.
Honda is a Japan-based manufacturing company that specializes in transportation; the company is counted among the leading vehicle manufacturing companies worldwide. Honda has been active in a variety of fields, including engines and generators, motorcycles, industrial trucks, garden equipment, robots and bicycles. The company's business segments comprise the motorcycle business, automobile business, financial services business, as well as power products and other businesses. In the fiscal year of 2013, when Honda sold more than four million vehicles, the manufacturing company generated close to ten trillion Japanese yen in revenue. The company’s revenue from automobile sales increased to around 5.8 trillion Japanese yen in the fiscal year of 2013. The firm is expected to benefit from the current weakness of the Japanese yen, as it will be able to sell its products cheaper in target markets. Therefore, it is little surprising that the majority of Honda’s automobile exports went to the US market in FY 2013.
Honda is also a top tier manufacturer of electric and hybrid vehicles. The Honda Fit EV, which debuted at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show, was one of the best-selling al-electric cars in the United States in 2012. The model was sought after to the extent that the automaker had to put customers on a waiting list and promise them that more Fit EVs were on the way.
