Default Re: Honda Mobilio : Official Review

Honda Cars India has not produced even a single unit of the Mobilio MPV since November 2015, according to data supplied by the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) association.

Extremely low demand is being cited as the reason, even as Honda maintains that the Mobilio has not been phased out from India yet.

Further, the company has no immediate plans to restart production of the model 'for some weeks at least', even as monthly volumes dip to a record low of around 200 units a month as against an average of around 3,400 units per month it received in its debut year. Discounts ranging between Rs 50,000 to Rs 1,00,000 are being offered on the Mobilio presently to get rid of the existing stock.

"The MPV segment is currently largely driven by sales in the commercial segment, while Mobilio's sales are mainly focused on customers who drive MPVs for personal usage. We would have liked to sell more, but as of now, the sales are as per the potential of the personal usage segment," a HondaCars India spokesperson said.

The BR-V, which is a labelled as a sports utility vehicle by Honda, rests on the same platform used by the Mobilio. While a lot of parts and components are shared between the two models the two have a similar design and styling language too.

"This similarity has resulted in a confusion to the buyer even as there have been no real push by Honda to position the two distinctly thereby hurting Mobilio. The BR-V is facing its own headwinds in the SUV segment where we have successful models like the Hyundai Creta," an analyst said.
