Honda to launch Diesel variant of its hatchback Brio

Honda Siel Cars India is planning to introduce a Diesel variant of its not much before launched hatchback Brio. The carmaker is testing its newly developed diesel technology, common rail i-DTEC, on the Brio and could introduce it in a 1.2-litre version. The diesel variants of its City sedan and Jazz hatchback, carrying larger engines, will be introduced later. The company had earlier planned to introduce diesel vehicles in 2013.

The Japanese automaker, which entered India in 1995, has seen sales fall 27% in the first nine months of the current fiscal, largely because it was unable to introduce any diesel variants, which have become popular in India because of the rising cost of petrol. The car maker also suffered losses due to Japan earthquake and then Thailand floods.

Stay tuned for more Information.
