MARYSVILLE, Ohio (AP) -- Japanese car company Honda is now exporting more cars than it imports -- and many of them are assembled at two Ohio plants.

The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1gqinJq ) reports that the assembly plants in Marysville and East Liberty -- both northwest of Columbus -- also broke annual production records last year.

The automaker exported 108,705 vehicles in 2013 and imported 88,537.

Of the total exports, nearly two-thirds -- 69,680 vehicles -- were assembled in the Ohio plants. They went to 40 countries.

The Honda Accord is assembled at Marysville, and its top crossover, the CR-V, is assembled at East Liberty.

Honda has about 13,700 employees in Ohio. In addition to the assembly plants, it has an engine plant in Anna, a transmission plant in Russells Point and other offices.
