Honda India has officially commenced its new manufacturing plant in Gujarat, India.
According to the company, the new facility will manufacture only 250cc engines and above for the international markets.
Despite the engine details remaining scarce, the new manufacturing plant is set up to meet the increasing demand in markets like South East Asia, Europe, the US, Canada, Japan and Australia.
“As demand for mobility rises globally, Honda envisions further expansion of its exports footprint across the world.
“With the introduction of BSVI norms in India, we are a step closer to achieving this vision.
“Building products which are at par with global standards of manufacturing, this new expansion will allow HMSI to develop production capabilities to strengthen our direction of make in India, for the world,” said HMSI MD, President and CEO Atsushi Ogata noted.
Honda claimed the new facility is able to produce close to 50,000 engines in the first year and will eventually increase to meet global demand hence strengthening the Japanese brand in the market.
