Honda Civic, CR-V Discontinued in India - To Focus on City
Honda Civic, CR-V Discontinued in India as Production Stops at Greater Noida plant
Honda has discontinued its Civic and CR-V and these cars would no longer be produced anymore in India. This has been due to the plant closing in Greater Noida, where these cars are made. These cars were made with less localization and were CKD assembled in India hence the prices were slightly higher. Now with the plant being closed, the cars would no longer be assembled here as their Rajasthan manufacturing facility cannot be able to make these cars.
Situated in Tapukara, Rajasthan, the plant makes the other Honda cars like the Amaze, WR-V and the City of course. The CR-V has been a part of Honda India for a long time and has been one of the first premium SUVs but the latest gen car demand has been hit due to the Covid-19 pressures and more competition. The Civic was actually re-launched last year and has been just on sale for a year or so. Honda had launched the Civic with a diesel engine and one petrol engine while it had less levels of localization. The Civic and CR-V have low sales which do not justify the plant re-structure that Honda will have to take to assemble these cars there.
Honda will now focus on its City brand which has been a success and is the best-selling midsize sedan in its class currently. It plans to launch the hybrid version of the City and expand the brand reach.
