Honda India To Reduce City Sedan Waiting Period

Written By:

Japanese automobile giant Honda has recently launched its City sedan and Mobilio MPV. The City has been the choice of many people in India. Since the launch of new generation City, the manufacturer has been struggling to keep up with huge demands.

Honda has now decided to double its production output of City from its facility in Tapukara, Rajasthan. Every month the Japanese manufacturer was assembling 5,000 vehicles, however, they will now be producing 10,000 vehicles in a single month.

The Japanese manufacturer currently offers its City sedan in India in both petrol and diesel options. Honda also provides a manual and automatic transmission. The automatic variant is available only with a petrol engine.

Honda City sports a 1497cc petrol engine, it produces maximum power of 117 bhp, along with 145 Nm of peak torque. It provides fuel efficiency figures of 17.8 kpl.

Honda City sports a 1498cc diesel mill, it produces maximum power of 99 bhp, along with 200 Nm of peak torque. It provides fuel efficiency figures of 26 kpl.

The increase in manufacture of City sedans is expected to reduce the waiting period considerably. Honda had recently stopped manufacture of its sedan, due to a shift of product manufacture. The vehicle currently has a waiting period of nothing less than three months.

Honda City is currently facing tough competition from the recently launched Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. The City sedan ranges from INR 7,20,000 to INR 11,06,000 ex-showroom, New Delhi. It will be great news if Honda is capable of offering the vehicle faster to its customers.
