Honda City diesel sedan premiere next month? Mobilio MPV explained in a new video
Once a segment leader, the City sedan was replaced by Hyundai Verna as it lacked a diesel option. But, that is a thing of the past. Honda has armed itself with the all new Diesel Revolution and this is now going to broaden itself with the new City next month.
2015 Honda City sedan will be unveiled next month, if we are to believe a report by Economic Times. This is surprising, considering that we were expecting the sedan to premiere at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo, along with the new 2015 Jazz hatchback and Mobilio MPV.
Speaking about the new City, unlike the other two models, the Jazz and Mobilio, Honda is yet to showcase the new City. The latter two have already been revealed earlier this year, in Japan and Indonesia respectively. All three are going to soon be launched in India, and the good news is that all three will feature a much-needed diesel powertrain option. To be offered with 1.5l diesel and petrol options, new City will also be offered in dual-fuel option of petrol/CNG. It will also be offered with automatic gearbox, along with manual gearbox.
Considering their limit to produce 10,000 cars monthly, the three new Honda cars which are on their way, is expected to put pressure on the production plant. The way the Amaze has been received by car buyers in India, the other three car’s are also expected to receive a similar response, if not less.
Since the launch of Amaze sedan, Honda Cars India have regularly posted growth in sales. Their plant in Greater Noida has been working to capacity and still they have orders which are yet to be cleared. In 2014, Honda will start production from their plant in Rajasthan, which will bring the total output of cars from Honda India to 20,000 units per month. This will be very much needed, considering the three new cars they are going to launch.
