The All-New 2023 CR-V and CR-V Hybrid Will be Built in Canada

This is good news for Honda Canada and Honda buyers in Canada

  • Finally, the CR-V Hybrid will be commercialized in Canada.

  • The new CR-V will be built alongside the Civic at the Alliston, Ontario manufacturing facilities.

Honda Canada has been handed a winning lottery ticket from Honda Global as the CR-V is the brand’s best-selling nameplate in North America. The all-new 2023 CR-V will come off the same assembly as the new Civic, another best-seller.

The Honda Civic is the Best-Selling Car in Canada for the 24th Consecutive Year

In Canada in 2021, the Honda Civic once more became the #1 selling car in the land, and this for the 24th consecutive year. The Honda CR-V has but one rival in the country and that’s the Toyota RAV4. The CR-V was the 2nd best-selling SUV and Honda’s volume leader in Canada last year.

The Alliston Plant 2 began assembling the CR-V in 2012 with the arrival of the 4th generation compact SUV. It also built the extremely popular 5th generation SUV, and now has secured the contract to assemble the all-new 6th generation CR-V.

For the 2020 model year, a new hybrid variant of the CR-V was introduced in the US and not Canada. It is powered by a 2.0-litre Atkinson-cycle 4-cylinder engine mated to Honda’s i-MMD hybrid system and an e-CVT transmission. Total system output is rated at 212 horsepower and features Honda’s Real-Time AWD as standard.

It’s unknown if the new CR-V hybrid will retain the same powertrain but either way, it should prove to be a popular option in Canada.
