Honda is starting production of a new 10-speed automatic transmission at a new assembly line in Tallapoosa, Georgia. The transmission, part of a $150 million investment split between Georgia and Honda's transmission manufacturing facility in Ohio, will first find its way into the 2018 Odyssey minivan later this spring.

According to Honda, its investment in the new transmission assembly line adds to more than $3 billion the automaker has invested in U.S. plants over the past 4 years alone. Honda also says the transmission will see its way into light truck and car models in the future, suggesting it may find its way into an upcoming version of the Pilot SUV or Accord sedan.

Of course, Honda isn't the only automaker investing heavily in the American market. Also in Georgia, Kia operates a 2.2-million-square-foot facility that was completed in 2009 at a cost of $1 billion. Hyundai, Nissan and Mercedes-Benz all operate plants in neighboring Alabama, while BMW, Volkswagen, Toyota and many other automakers manufacture vehicles in the Southeastern United States. Additionally, domestic brands -- such as Chevrolet, Ford and Chrysler -- still manufacture many vehicles all across the United States.

As for Honda, it has several manufacturing facilities in the U.S. -- most notably in Ohio, where the brand builds the CR-V crossover, the Accord sedan and coupe, the Acura TLX sedan and others. Honda also builds the Odyssey minivan, Pilot SUV, Ridgeline pickup truck, and the Acura MDX SUV at a large factory in Lincoln, Alabama. The new Odyssey, destined to be the first vehicle to carry the brand's the 10-speed transmission, was shown earlier this year at the Detroit Auto Show.
