For the month of October 2019, Honda Cars India sold 10,010 units in the domestic market. Exports for the Japanese automaker stood at 633 units. In comparison, the company sold 14,187 units during the same month last year.
Commenting on the sales, Rajesh Goel, Senior Vice President and Director – Sales and Marketing, Honda Cars India Ltd said, “The festive season was rewarding for the auto sector after a prolonged slowdown.
