Japanese carmaker Honda is all set to relaunch its flagship sedan City in mid-December instead of January. The new City would have high localisation which means its gonna have either a lower or same price tag. Thanks to the competition which makes the Honda City available to masses and also bring in more numbers to Honda Siel India.
Honda launched the new City in Thailand in September. The new City will have no changes in engine platform and pricing; however, there will be changes made in the exterior and interior of the car.
The company will cut production at its Greater Noida plant due to parts supply shortage, caused by the floods in Thailand and the advancement of the launch is mainly to utilise full capacity of the plant.
Honda reported 4.76 per cent jump in its sales for October at 5,526 units with the City accounting for more than 50% of the sales. With the facelift and hopefully revised prices the numbers could see a big jump.
Honda is also planning to launch a diesel version of the City and has started work on the diesel engine which could see its place in 2014 when the all new City on a new platform will be introduced in India.
