Japanese car giant Honda announced that it will roll out its first diesel vehicle in the Indian market by the coming financial year.
As per reports, the company’s new offering will be an entry-level sedan, known as Amaze.
The report added that Amaze will be based on the platform of its subsisting small vehicle ‘Brio’.
In a report, Honda Cars India stated, “The new entry sedan will be called the ‘Amaze’, and will be launched in Thailand and India… The details of the model will be announced later this month in Thailand and next financial year, 2013-14, in India.”
“In the Indian market, the Honda’s new offering will boast a petrol engine and a recently created diesel engine and will be placed in the entry-level sedan section for the domestic market,” the company added.
In Thailand, the said bike will be outfitted with only a petrol engine, the company added up.
Without sharing inside information, the company stated: “These models will be rolled out in the market at reasonable rates realized by escalating cost fight via local sourcing as well as fabrication.”
Honda proposes to bring in the Amaze to fit with the growing requirements of clients in auto zones in the Asian market, where rivalry is escalating, it added.
While talking about the model’s traits, Honda stated: “The vehicle provides remarkable power delivery yet with class leading fuel competence, whilst sustaining core Honda values to attract the increasing base of middle-class clients aiming to possess a Honda Sedan.”
The Brio was set up completely for the Asian markets, and was introduced in Thailand and Indian markets during 2011, accompanied by Indonesia in the year 2012.
