Honda is readying the next generations of the City and Jazz for the Indian market. Now, as per reports, Honda will launch the duo sometime in 2020. Both are expected to retain the companies iconic ‘Man-Maximum-Machine-Minimum’ philosophy when launched.
Both these cars comply to the BS-VI norms, which will kick off in April 2020. Meanwhile, Honda have also revealed that the next-gen City and Jazz will also come with a petrol-hybrid option. As of now, Honda offers only petrol and diesel engines for its current models.
Despite the growing demands for electric vehicles in India, Honda will not take this step for the City and Jazz instead the company feels that petrol hybrid cars are better alternative to EVs. This may come because they offer Essentials in India like high fuel efficiency and low tailpipe emissions.
Given that major automakers launch their vehicles at an attractive sticker price, expect Honda to do so as well. This could result in large number of booking and good sales numbers initially for the automaker. We can expect both the City and Jazz to perform well given the brand image they have in India.
