We are extremely thankful to our customers for their faith in us and we are confident of a strong performance through the year.
HCIL has also registered a growth of 47% between April 2014 and Jan 2015 with 149,464 units, a step up over the 101,370 units that they pushed out during the corresponding period in 2013-14.

Recently, the company has hiked the prices of all their models, between INR 15,000 to INR 60,000, thanks to the excise duty roll back for 2015. Honda will also expand the product line by launching the next generation Jazz hatchback in the coming few months, which would no doubt further contribute to their performance this year.
