Japanese automaker Honda will stop selling its three models – Jazz, WR-V and fourth-generation City – in India by March next year. Industry sources gave this information. The Company operates in India through its wholly owned subsidiary, Honda Cars India.
If these models are discontinued, it will only have three models in its portfolio – City Hybrid, fifth-generation City and the entry-level Amaze sedan. The company had halted production of the Civic and CR-V with the closure of its Greater Noida plant in December 2020.
Sources said that all three models will be phased out and the company is now preparing to introduce the SUV model to the market. When contacted, a Honda Cars India spokesperson said: “The company cannot comment on market speculation.”
Earlier this year, the company said it planned to introduce an SUV in the country next year. Honda’s market share has been declining in recent years as new companies have consolidated their position in the country.
