In April 2013, 1416 more Amaze sedans were sold than Chevrolet Sail. With 4852 Amaze compact sedans sold, and 3436 Chevrolet Sail sedans sold, Honda won the battle between both last month. It’s the same for May 2013, only the gap has widened.
With the Indian auto market rather depressed in recent months, a new car launch that tugs at the right places does bring in some relief. The past 3 months have seen 1 car raise it’s head high, the Honda Amaze sedan.
Riding on the success of their first diesel powered car, Honda Cars India posted their best ever monthly sales for the month of May 2013. It has now emerged that they have announced a price hike for Amaze and CR-V, ranging from Rs 3,000 to Rs 14,000.
Compact sedan sales have ensured some movement in the otherwise still Indian auto industry. Honda Cars India Limited (HCIL) sold a total of 11,342 units in May 2013 thus clocking their highest ever domestic sales. Success during May can be largely attributed to their recently introduced family sedan, Amaze and the revamped Brio which is doing it’s bit.
6036 Honda Amaze sedans sold account for 53% of company sales in May, Brio sales are 1/3rd of compact sedan
India saw 6036 Honda Amaze compact sedans sold in May 2013. On the whole, domestic sales stood at 11,342 units and the Amaze contributed 53% of domestic sales volume. With export numbers added with 738 units, total HCIL sales stood at 12080 units. In April, 4,852 Honda Amaze compact sedans were sold.
Honda India is certainly working round the clock to ensure ease of logistics. The past 7 weeks have been busy to say the least. The good thing being, it’s paid off or at least is in the right direction. Not only has waiting period for the Honda Amaze been held in a tight leash of under 4 months, some models are now going to be dispatched in under 3 months.
Last month, Honda cars India reported 4,852 Honda Amaze compact sedans sold. That’s 57% of all cars sold by the company. For the month sales stood at 8,488 cars sold. In comparison, 7,075 cars were sold by HCIL in April 2012. Sales growth for the month stood at 20%.
Even while Honda has recently launched their new Honda Amaze based on the Brio hatchback, they are excited about the new Honda Brio MPV which is also scheduled to enter markets in the not too distant future. A new render of Honda Brio MPV has now appeared online, which gives us an idea how the seven seater Brio will look.
