Honda BR-V

2016 has been an eventful year for Honda Cars India. The Japanese auto giant launched two new models this year - the Honda BR-V crossover and the new-gen Honda Accord Hybrid sedan along with facelifts two existing models - the Amaze subcompact sedan and the Brio hatchback. In fact, the newly launched Honda Accord Hybrid was named the Green Car Of The Year at our NDTV Car And Bike Awards 2017. In fact, the carmaker is also reportedly planning to launch the Honda City facelift early next year.

Despite that, the carmaker's sales have been going down and Honda has expressed some concerns on the on-going demonetisation drive. The company managed to sell 8,029 units and exported about 697 units last month. The company sold 14,712 units in November 2015 in the domestic market and the company sales have declined by about 45 per cent. Currently, Honda Cars India's portfolio consists of eight models - the Brio hatchback, Jazz premium hatch, Amaze subcompact sedan, City sedan, Mobilio MPV, and BR-V crossover-SUV along with CBU models Honda CR-V and Accord Hybrid.
