Technology has been a hallmark of Honda's East Liberty Auto Plant, Honda's first plant in North America with the flexibility to produce cars and light trucks on the same assembly line. This milestone was achieved when the Honda Element light truck made its debut in 2002.
Today, the plant produces the Honda Accord Crosstour, Element and CR-V. The East Liberty Auto Plant was the first plant on the continent to employ low-emission, water-borne paint and the first to use laser welding in mass production. Even the toilets are unique, utilizing recycled water. The water is tinted blue because it's recycled from the pretreated waste water.

The East Liberty Auto Plant (ELP) has achieved several technological firsts in the U.S. auto industry — the first plant to use laser welding for mass production and the first plant to implement low-emission, waterborne paint technology. In 2000, ELP was the first Honda plant in North America to adopt Honda’s innovative flexible manufacturing system, which greatly enhances plant flexibility through the use of programmable welding robots and standardized assembly processes zoned by vehicle functions. ELP added production of the CR-V sport utility vehicle in 2006. In 2009, ELP ended production of Civic to focus on production of Honda “crossover” models including Element, CR-V and all-new Accord Crosstour.
