More Earthquake Woes: 2012 Honda CR-V delayed
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store.Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
If you were waiting for the 2012 Honda CR-V, we have some bad news for you. Honda is delaying the launch of the new CR-V in the United States by a month on account of difficulty in sourcing parts because of the unexpected natural calamity.
The replacement of the current CR-V was expected this fall in the United States but according to a memo written by American Honda Motor Co. Executive Vice President John Mendel, the company will delay the fall launch of the 2012 CR-V by at least one month to prevent a production gap.
The memo further states that the company would also reduce output of the redesigned 2012 Civic through the summer and warned that production would not return to normal until year end.
The all-new Honda CR-V is expected to make its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Will this Indian launch face a further delay?
