Honda Siel Cars sales fall 25% in June


Car maker Honda Siel Cars India (HSCI) today reported sales for June at 3,455 units, a decline of 24.81% over the same period last year.

The company had sold 4,595 units in the corresponding month last year, HSCI said in a statement.

Following the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan in March, the company had cut the production due to non-availability of parts from the island nation.

"We have been working with production constraints for the last few months. However, recovery efforts are going on to increasingly meet the demand which has helped us improve our sales in June 2011," HSCI Senior Vice President (Sales and Marketing) Jnaneswar Sen said.

The sales of its largest selling model City is back on an upswing, posting a growth of 53% from the previous month, he added.

The June sales comprised 2,802 units of its flagship sedan City, 361 units of hatchback Jazz, 175 units of premium sedan Civic, 103 units of luxury sedan Accord and 14 units of its sports utility vehicle CR-V, the company said.
