Six New Honda Cars To Be Launched In Next Three Years and most of them are going to be current cars with an all new approach towards
Big time Japanese automaker Honda Motor Co. will be launching six new models in India in the next three years with the aim of enhancing their position in the Indian market. Apart from the common petrol and diesel cars these launches will include hybrid cars as well, and all upcoming six cars will come in via the more affordable CKD route which will help them to be priced relatively. The main motto of launching these new models is to revive its market share in the growing Indian market.
The six big launches coming up in the next three years won’t include and battery vehicles in it, and all these models will be assembled at the company’s two plants in India. Talking about the models coming to India first up we get the next-gen CR-V for the Indian market in 2018. The new gent CR-V gets a diesel engine under the hood. A 1.6-litre twin-turbo unit, the engine will generate 158 bhp at 4,000 rpm and 350 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm, and will be mated with a nine-speed automatic gearbox.
Next up we have the Amaze sub-four-meter compact sedan which will likely be a global model, just like its predecessor and will have a tough fight with its rivals like the Ford Aspire, Maruti Suzuki Dzire and the Hyundai Accent. Later in 2019 Honda will likely bring up the two most anticipated models, with the Civic making its way first and following it will be the Honda HR-V. The refreshed Civic sedan when launched in the country will get a 1.8-litre, four cylinder petrol motor and a 1.6-litre diesel engine as well. Following the Civic we get a brand new five-seater crossover the Honda HR-V. Under the hood, the India bound HR-V will get the same 1.8-litre petrol and the 1.6-litre diesel motor as the Civic.
After that Honda has already started working on the next-gen City sedan which will likely take its place in 2020. The Japanese car manufacturer is also planning to launch the 10th generation Accord sedan, which has just been bought to light for the North American market.
The company, however, stated that there will not be any electric vehicle models in the current line-up as it awaits clarity on the government’s policy regarding electric mobility. Talking about hybrids the company already sells the hybrid models of the CR-v, Civic, Accord and the HR-v in the other countries. The hybrid versions of this models might also be coming to India.
