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.

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