Default Honda Cars to set up new plant in Gujarat

Honda acquires land in Gurarat for 1000 Cr to setup a new plant.

I wonder why would they do this. Their Rajasthan plant is far from running at full capacity, and we do not see a large volume growth specially considering they are going more premium now(with their pricing strategy).
Could this be for exports from India?

I guess Honda is seeing this as an investment (in land) rather than an expense. This move looks like it's a part of long term India business plan.

The next brio platform will be ready in 2018 and it will be global platform. If that becomes a super-hit (like Honda City), then all that excess capacity will vanish in no time.
