Take road tax @ 12.15 % unless there is a discount for hybrid cars. plus insurance.

Possibly close to quarter of a crore !

HONDA has gone suicidal , if you want to spread a green message , plant more trees around the factory , the hybrid version is slower , has horrid looking wheels , costs nearly double , the first flop of HONDA in many years ......

Holy Cow!! 21.5 lacs ex showroom delhi ! I think its surely overpriced by 4-5 lacs IMO. I expected Honda to price this lil agressively to attract new buyers.

Not sure WHY OUR GOVT dont support GREEN.

Govt should have made 0% as import duty for GREEN cars. These guys want to fill up their pockets with Taxes paid by us.

In other countries buyer get a discount of $2000 for GREEN cars. In india until government motivates the buyer by reducing taxes for the customer or reduce taxes for the company who builds GREEN cars, otherwise difficult to sell these cars.

Thumbs down Unbelievable!!!



I have nothing but CONTEMPT for Honda Motors India

They have priced Hybrid technology out of the reach of most environmentalists and positioned it at a price point only fools will entertain

24 lakhs on road is 8 lacs more than what it should have sold at. I will never buy a Honda product again.

For now, if you want to go green, stick with factory fitted CNG cars.

AFAIK, its a CBU.

Honda chooses the CKD way usually, and that has played a huge role in the success of the Accord over the Camry. IMO, they have introduced the Civic Hybrid in India, not for sales, but for promoting the green brand image of the company. If you notice, this green theme has been going on for sometime, with even the City giving free rides to bugs!

However, whatever the price be, this is the first proper hybrid in India, right?

Honda Civic Hybrid at Rs 21.5 lakh - Released today..

It looks very very expensive since it is a CBU and attracts > 100% duty.

Govt should reduce the duty for all alternate fuel cars to allow manufacturers to develop and produce more alternate fuel cars.
