of keeping group affiliates close by. For example, in Tapukara, where a car plant is expected to start next year, the two-wheeler arm already runs
This development comes soon after Honda announced (in April this year) an investment of R2,500 crore for the second car plant at Tapukara with a 1.2-lakh unit initial annual capacity, apart from a forgings unit and diesel engine plant at the same site. Currently, the company operates a single car plant in Greater Noida with annual output of over 1.2 lakh units. The plant makes the Brio, Amaze, City models and assembles the CR-V and Accord.
Responding to queries, Honda Car India said, "As a standard practice, we refrain from commenting on market speculation and rumours. Our current focus is to meet the deadline for our Tapukara Plant and begin car assembly operations there by next year".
