The Power of Dreams

At Honda, we believe in The Power of Dreams. We recognize the inspiration and motivation that dreams can ignite, and we encourage all our associates to not only dream, but to pursue those dreams and make them a reality.

The Power of Dreams drives us to challenge, innovate and evolve, bringing new insights, technologies and joy to all the Honda products we create.

The pursuit of dreams is embedded in the very foundations of our company. Soichiro Honda never stopped chasing dreams. Such was the strength of his belief in the importance of dreams, it inspired the name of one our most successful motorbikes, the Dream.

Message from the President

Delivering more dreams and joys to our customers by leveraging honda strengths

Since the company's foundation, Honda has consistently continued taking on challenges a step ahead of the times, based on our Fundamental Belief of "The Three Joys" comprising "The Joy of Buying," "The Joy of Selling," and "The Joy of Creating." We are currently working on two themes — "further advancement of the six-region global operation structure" and "development of challenging products unique to Honda" — while envisioning the creation of a new Honda which goes beyond the pursuit of these themes.

I believe that the first thing we need to do toward this end is to make sure that each and every person involved with Honda shares the same passion to please our customers, comes together as "Team Honda" and takes on challenges to achieve our goals while respecting each other's individual qualities.

Now that Honda has become a company offering an even wider variety of products, including the HondaJet in addition to motorcycles, automobiles and power products, we are determined to make the best use of this strength and continue taking on challenges as "Team Honda" so that we can deliver more dreams and joys to our customers.
