Honda Manufacturing of Alabama (HMA) is an automobile factory located in Lincoln, Alabama. It builds vehicles for Honda sales in North America. Production began on November 14, 2001, with the plant producing its two millionth vehicle on September 3, 2010. HMA is also the first Honda factory to have both engine die-casting and machining on site as well as vehicle assembly, under the same roof. HMA is the sole manufacturer of the Honda Odyssey, Honda Pilot, Honda Ridgeline and the Acura MDX.

The first vehicle the factory produced was the Honda Odyssey in 2001.[1] In 2004 the Honda Pilot was added as the second vehicle the factory was producing.[2] In 2009 the Alabama factory picked up production of the Honda Ridgeline.[3] Between 2009-2010 the factory produced the v6 model of the Honda Accord,[4] but all production of the Accord has since moved back to the Marysville Auto Plant. In 2013 the factory began production of the 2014 Acura MDX.[5]
