The CarWale Daily Fuel - 7 August 2012
  • Honda currently has a petrol only profile in India and that has resulted in a considerable dip in sales. Last week we reported about Honda’s plans to probably discontinue the D-segment sedan, the Civic, in India soon. Now there are reports that the Japanese car maker will use the same route that is opted by many others to tackle fall in demand of petrol cars – exports to South Asian and African countries.
