In terms of month-on-month figures, Honda volumes declined by 20.61% compared to the 6,692 units sold in March this year. The decline also comes after the Japanese auto giant opted for a smaller model range, discontinuing fourth-generation Honda City, Jazz and WR-Vs amid the transition to BS6 Stage 2 emission standards starting in April. The Amaze is the most affordable offering from the manufacturer, followed by the City and City Hybrid.
Speaking about the sales performance, Yuichi Murata, Sales and Marketing Director, Honda Cars India Ltd said, “Our sales results for April 2023 are in line with our plan. Customers have appreciated the robust new City Safety package with the inclusion of an advanced driver assistance system – Honda Sensing in all variants of models approx. We are pleased to start the new fiscal year with positive consumer sentiment and strong market demand.”
Honda is now gearing up for its next big launch, a new compact SUV, which will arrive this holiday season. The competing Hyundai Creta model is expected to be a game-changer for the manufacturer and is expected to bring many sought-after volumes. The automaker is likely to offer its next SUV with hybrid and pure petrol powertrain options.
