Honda sells 1 lakh City sedans in India

Honda Cars India has achieved a milestone by selling 1 lakh City sedans in India since its launch last year. This sales number was achieved in 15 months making it a commendable achievement.

Since its debut in 1998, the City has gone through three major model changes, with the new City being the fourth one. Unlike the last three generation City’s, the current City is now being offered with a diesel engine as well and that has led to a spike in their overall sales.

The Honda City Diesel is powered by the 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine that produces 98bhp and 200Nm of torque. Power is transmitted to the front wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox. Honda will also continue to offer the 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine which has now been tuned to produce 116bhp and 146Nm of torque. Power is transmitted to the front wheels via a five-speed manual or a CVT gearbox.

“This is a very proud moment for us. City brand has been the face of Honda in India, enjoying strong leadership and popularity in its segment ever since its launch. We would like to thank our customers for the confidence and continuous support that has enabled the brand to grow from strength to strength. While retaining the traditional set of sedan buyers, the new City has been able to attract a large number of young buyers. 30 per cent of the customers have bought the City as their first car,” Jnaneshwar Sen, senior vice president, marketing and sales, HCIL.
