Honda Begins Production Of Business Jet


And our last word in business today comes from another well-known Japanese company. The last word is: Sky High Ambition.


And the company is Honda, which has long aspired to launch off the road and into the skies, and now it's one step one step closer to that goal. The company recently announced that it has started production on its HondaJet.

INSKEEP: It's a twin jet engine aircraft, being assembled in North Carolina, and aimed at the business market. Industry insiders call this the Honda Civic of the skies. But with a reported price tag of four and a half million dollars, it sounds more like a top of the line Acura.

WERTHEIMER: And that is the business news on MORNING EDITION, from NPR News. I'm Linda Wertheimer.

INSKEEP: I'm Steve Inskeep. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
