If Honda Civic comes to India it will give some serious competition cars like Optra & Corolla coz its fast and can be modified brilliantly

Dude, thats a European Civic and it has been in production for the past 4 years or so. Also sold in the US as the Si. Whatever made you think its a Hybrid or the fact that it would be running around without camoflauge.

I believe The new civic has just come to North America because I dont see them around much. They are not even official on the website. See that there is ahybrid there though.

And what do you say about this......,00.html

devarshi84 11th July 2005 18:49

It is only the information that has been released on the new car. It will atleast take 6-8 months for the car to be launched commercially in Europe and North America. After its success there it will be launched in India. Consider that to be around after June July next year at the latest.

isnt that what you said ?
Hybrid Hatch Coupe ...had you said hybrid civic ..we wouldnt have stirred up further discussion ...

I think Hybrid may be good for India because i learned somewhere it runs on battery for speeds lower then 50kmh (about 30mph) and after that on fuel engine. On many Bombay roads we drive less then 30kmph so we should save allot on fuel bills.

But again Hybrid cars are expensive which defuse purpose of savings :(

What do you say ?
