Honda is celebrating the U.S. export of its 1 millionth vehicle at the company's assembly plant in central Ohio.

The company says the millionth export is a 2013 Honda Accord, built at the Marysville plant northwest of Columbus.

The milestone comes 25 years after the first U.S.-made Honda, also an Accord and also built at the Marysville plant, was exported to an overseas market.

The company is marking the event with an event at the plant Wednesday afternoon.

Honda said last month that it is making more than $200 million in new investments at two parts plants in western Ohio, creating at least 200 new manufacturing jobs.
