Honda India gone nuts?
Honda to jazz up small-car market in India
22 Oct, 2007, 0215 hrs IST,Nandini Sen Gupta, TNN
NEW DELHI: It won’t just be Jazz music for Honda in India. Even as it readies to formally premiere the GeNext Jazz at the Tokyo Motor Show, the Japanese auto major is working on a brand new platform for a small car that will use India as the manufacturing hub.
The new platform will be for a global car like all Honda platforms but will be primarily sourced and manufactured out of India. This will be a first for Honda which has a handful of basic platforms worldwide from which it spins out new models.

yes i dont get the title either..
i dont think honda is a fool
cause as a matter of fact each and evey car they have sold has been a best seller in its category
OHC NHC civic,accord and CRV are highest sold cars in their respective segments
this shows they are interested only in best sellers not just selling in sustainable numbers
so i am sure they are waitnig for the right car maybe they dont think the present jazz is suitable for india as its likely to be overpriced
hence they are waiting to get a car of rigth combination of price and quality that will be appreciated here
there are many companies which makes cars and sells them in descent numbers but honda is the only one in india that sell only the best sellers
infact HONDA is the only company that proved that indian D segment is also active(with its accord and CRV) where other car makers are lagging far behind(comparatively ofcourse)

Although the title does not make sense in terms of how launching a brand new platform can be madness, but the title is in our national language and shouldn't be difficult for our countrymen to fathom.

Wicked title thread. Got me stunned for a minute. Thought Honda has declared some car scheme . Anyways, coming back to the topic. Honda's investment in India has really been something to appreciate. Even though they have launched a limited number of models in India, still all of them have been the best in their respective segments. And with the new visions set forward by Honda for India, I feel the fight of Eastern Automotive Giants to be the bag the title of the best in India will get even tougher.

Oh! Relax people. I just suggested that, because it makes it easier for people who can't understand the language in a flash. We're going really OT now.
JFYI, there are 22 official/national languages of India, Hindi being one of them.
Sorry mods, got everyone OT there.
Let's get back to Honda and its madness. lol.
