Honda India mulling exporting Mobilio to South Africa

Honda India is planning to export its latest MPV, the Mobilio, to South Africa in the coming few months. The company is in the process of getting the necessary approvals from the South African government and once it is done, it will start exporting the MPV from India. 

The top honcho of the company has confirmed that is has gained around 7,000 bookings in India and is bullish about its performance in India, just like the Indonesian market. The Japanese manufacturer has sold over 46,000 units in Indonesia since its launch in January this year.

“We are trying to create a new segment through this vehicle, the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga being the closest competition. We will start exports in some time from now, the exact time is not yet decided," said Shigeru Yamazaki, senior vice-president, sales and marketing, Honda Cars India.

The Honda Mobilio is based on the Brio hatchback’s versatile platform which also underpins the Amaze compact sedan. The Japanese manufacturer has taken a lot of effort in the design department to ensure that the Mobilio looks like a compact MPV, though the dimensions tell a different story altogether. At 4.4 metres, the Mobilio is longer than both its rivals, the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and the Chevrolet Enjoy.
