Japanese carmaker Honda will discontinue the Euro-spec Accord by February 2015, said Honda Australia Director Stephen Collins in an interview with an Australia-based publication.
Collins said, “February will be the last month of production for the units sold in Australia so around that time the model will likely be discontinued from all the other markets.”
This news is not to be mistaken for Honda discontinuing the Accord. Honda sold two Accords at the same time in some markets except the USA. The company also commented that the sale in this segment is declining and the two Accords strategy won’t work well in the future.
The Euro Accord is a shade smaller than the regular wide-bodied model and has done well in Australia. The Accord Euro model has also run in the WTCC races.
In India, Honda withdrew the Accord last year owing to poor sales. There are no indications from the company, but we expect that the ninth generation Accord might be launched soon.
