Honda to inaugurate R&D center at Gurgaon in October 2015
Looks like Honda is making heavy investments in India in its attempt to become a more mainstream car maker. All Honda cars till date have been designed and developed abroad - even the highly India specific cars like Brio and Amaze. Apparently Honda wants to change this trend and in future will develop India specific cars in India. This, IMO, will enable them design and test their cars to be more suited for India. Welcome move by Honda. However, this should not become just a cost-cutting effort, but instead be a purposeful effort to design better cars for the local market with much more local inputs and local testing.
