The plant, which as on date produces engine components and transmission parts for domestic, Thai and European markets will soon be expanding the Brio platform and offering a wide range of products. The company has just launched its Honda City Diesel variant in India and now gets ready to showcase  Jazz, Mobilio and (probably) Vezel as well as the new Accord/Hybrid at the upcoming Auto Expo 2014.

Honda Amaze sedan, launched in 2013 has met with enormous success specially due to its Earth Dreams diesel technology. Mobilio will be Honda’s first MPV for the Indian market and will be based on  Brio platform and manufactured from Honda Tapukara plant along with Honda Jazz.
