As Unlock 1.0 eased up lockdown restrictions, Honda Cars India Ltd (HCIL) resumed production operations partially and dispatched 1,398 units in domestic market in June 2020.
The number of export units stood at 142 units last month.
Speaking on the current situation, Mr Rajesh Goel, Sr. Vice President and Director, Marketing & Sales, Honda Cars India Ltd said, “Amidst the COVID-19 crisis, June was significant for us as we resumed our production partially from mid of the month while exercising utmost caution and highest safety protocols in our plants. The pace of deliveries is more than double of our dispatches in June. HCIL was in the middle of BS-6 transition when the lockdown happened, so ever since our production resumed, our priority is to quickly roll out the awaited models including All New City, New WR-V, Civic BS6 diesel and New Jazz. Three of these models will be launched in the next two weeks and accordingly we will progressively ramp up our volumes to cater to the market effectively.”
The company had sold 10,314 units in domestic market in June 2019.
