  •  

Honda two-wheelers has rolled out the 1,50,00,000th unit of the Activa gearless scooter from its manufacturing facility in Gujarat. This has made Activa the first automatic scooter in the country to reach the said production milestone.

In March 2017, Honda dispatched 2,39,339 units of the Activa in India. It is currently the market leader in the two-wheeler segment, ahead of popular motorcycles like the Hero Splendor, HF Deluxe and Passion. Honda claims that the Activa is currently the largest selling two-wheeler not only in India but across the world as well.

The Activa brand was introduced in India in 2001. During the first year, the automatic scooter managed to clock 55,000 unit sales. It took three years to become the country's best-selling automatic scooter. During the fiscal year 2012-13, the Honda Activa crossed the 10 lakh sales milestone. The next four years saw Activa's sales more than doubling as the scooter clocked 27.59 lakh unit sales during the last fiscal, i.e. 2016-17. During this period, the Activa also dethroned the Hero Splendor as the best-selling two-wheeler of the country.
