Honda to increase Amaze’s production to reduce waiting period

Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

Riding high on the success of its first diesel offering, the Honda Amaze, Honda Car India is looking to add more volumes by bringing down the waiting period of the sub-four metre sedan.

Mr. Jnaneshwar Sen, senior vice president, Honda cars India, said –

The demand for Amaze has been so strong and we still continue to have more bookings. In order to reduce the waiting period, we have decided to start a third shift at the Greater Noida plant by November.

Ever since the Amaze was launched in India, Honda’s manufacturing plant in Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh, and the powertrain plant in Tapukara, Rajasthan, have been working on full steam to meet the customer demand. Honda is also in the process of setting up an assembly line at its Tapukara facility which would double the company’s annual production capacity to 2,40,000 units by 2014.

Honda Cars India is also exporting the Amaze to places like South Africa (where it is called the Brio Sedan) and Nepal.

The Brio based sedan is available with an 89PS 1.2 litre i-VTEC petrol motor and a 100PS 1.5 litre i-DTEC diesel engine. Both the engines are mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox while the petrol engine is also available with a 5-speed automatic transmission.

The addition of a third shift would help Honda in reducing the waiting period for the Amaze. Considering that the waiting period for the Ford EcoSport, another sub-four metre contender, is shooting up, Honda’s move to increase the production of the Amaze is well timed.
