    Just wondering if anyone knows where the Clarity is manufactured. It doesn't really matter to much to me but I do like to buy Honda's assembled in Japan because I feel like I support the brand more that way.

    I think ours said 98% Japanese.

    Japan. No love for the American workers in Ohio?

    I just grabbed a VIN off a dealer website and ran it thru a VIN decoder (

    Comes back with Plant Information: Sayama, Saitama, Japan

    The first letter of the VIN is the country, the plant is the last letter before the 6 digit sequence number at the end.

    First letter Values
    1,4,5 United States
    2 Canada
    3 Mexico
    J Japan
    K Korea
    S UK
    V France, Spain
    T Switzerland
    W Germany
    Y Sweden/Finland
    Z Italy

    I believe this is the only Honda model imported to North America. Probably not high enough volume yet to justify multiple production plants.

    MarkClarity, thank you for that valuable link. I wish we could make posts like yours a “stickie”” as in other forums.

    I looked at the window sticker and it said Japan.
