According to industry sources, Japanese carmaker Honda is planning to discontinue its three models Jazz, WR-V and the fourth generation City in India by March next year.
The company, which is present in the country through a wholly owned subsidiary Honda Cars India, has only three models in its line-up – City Hybrid, the fifth-generation City and the entry-level sedan Amaze – after the three brands were discontinued. After that it will be abandoned. ,
In December 2020, the company stopped production of the Civic and CR-V with the closure of its Greater Noida plant as it struggled to gain a foothold in the Indian market.

Sources said that the three models are being phased out as the company prepares to launch the SUV model in the market.

When contacted, a Honda Cars India spokesperson said, “The company cannot comment on market speculation.”

Earlier this year, the automaker announced that it is planning to launch an SUV in the country next year. The company is currently in the process of developing the model, she had said.

In December 2020, Honda announced the closure of manufacturing operations at its Greater Noida facility in Uttar Pradesh, thus consolidating its production activities at its second plant in Tapukara, Rajasthan.

The Japanese auto major noted that the move has been taken to reorganize its manufacturing operations with the goal of improving business efficiency. The company’s market share has declined over the years as new players consolidate their position in the country.
