Sales for the Amaze has dropped to mere 933 units as the company has lowered its production to make way for the new Amaze.

Speaking on sales, Yoichiro Ueno, President and CEO, Honda Cars India Ltd. said, “HCIL has witnessed strong sales momentum with the existing product line-up marking a cumulative growth of over 13% and we are confident of closing the financial year on a positive note. We showcased our upcoming models at the recently concluded Auto Expo 2018 which has created a significant buzz in the market. The planned reduction in volumes of current Amaze resulted in lower wholesale in February.”
