Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) announced that the company’s sales were up by 19% from January to August 2016. HCPI registered a total of 14,496 unit sales as compared to the same period last year with 12,167 units. Driving HCPI’s sales growth is the City and the Mobilio.
According to HCPI, the City remains to be its best-selling model with 41% share in HCPI’s year-to-date sales. With this, HCPI wants to further boost the City’s sales performance by introducing a Limited Edition variant. Compared to the regular City, the Limited Edition variant is equipped with daytime running lights, door visors, speed-send auto door lock, and a panic button.
On the other hand, the Mobilio contributed 24% in HCPI’s year-to-date sales. HCPI claims that the Mobilio leads the 1.5L Multi-purpose Utility Vehicle (MUV) segment. To put things in perspective, some of the Mobilio’s competitors are the Toyota Avanza and the Suzuki Ertiga.
