“There was a lot of excitement this week as the 1,000 associates at Honda of South Carolina Mfg. were joined by some special guests for the mass production launch of our newest and largest side-by-side vehicle, the 2016 Honda Pioneer™ 1000.

As the exclusive global manufacturer of the Pioneer line of side-by-sides, this new flagship model powered by a class-leading, purpose-built 999cc twin-cylinder engine and a fully automatic six-speed Dual Clutch Transmission joins the Pioneer 700 and 500 model in production at Honda South Carolina.

There was more to celebrate because in conjunction with the production startup of the Pioneer 1000 we announced the creation of 44 new jobs and additional investment of $42 million. This will help us meet the increasing customer demand that this new product will help ignite.

But even as we prepare for the excitement of our continued growth and investment in South Carolina, I am so very proud of the foundation that made it all possible, the associates at Honda South Carolina who brought to life the new Honda Pioneer 1000. They are the true Pioneers, one-thousand strong.”
