Honda Motor Company was founded by Soichiro Honda in October 1946. He was very interested in automobiles from a young age so he used to tune cars and enter them into races using his friend’s garage. As he grew up he decided to be in the automobile industry. Honda Motor Company grew in a short time to become the world’s largest manufacturer of motorcycles by 1964. The first production automobile from Honda was the T360 mini pick-up truck, which went on sale in August 1963. Powered by a small 356cc straight-4 gasoline engine, it was classified under the cheaper Kei car tax bracket.
