GREENSBURG, Ind. -- Honda will add production of its CR-V sports utility vehicle to its Greensburg manufacturing plant.

Honda Manufacturing of Indiana (HMIN) announced Monday the SUV would move production from the company's Guadalajara plant to its location in southeastern Indiana.

The Greensburg plant will continue to produce the Honda Civic sedan as well.

“Our team is excited to take on responsibility for another important vehicle in the Honda CR-V, leveraging the manufacturing flexibility of our associates and making optimal use of our capabilities in Indiana,” said Bob Nelson, president of HMIN.

The CR-V was Honda's second-highest selling model in 2015. It will be the latest car to be produced in Indiana.

In November, Subaru announced it would produce its new, unnamed crossover vehicle in Lafayette. The company already produces its Legacy and Outback models at its Lafayette plant.
