Last month, Honda Cars India Ltd (HCIL) sold 10,180 units of Amaze, setting a new record for the highest ever monthly sales for a single model in the company's history.

"We have recorded our best ever July sales, thanks to the overwhelming response to the all new Amaze and sustained momentum for City and WR-V," HCIL Senior Vice President and Director, Sales and Marketing Rajesh Goel said in a statement.

The company has been maximising the supply of new model Amaze in the market to reduce its waiting time, he added.

"The onset of festive season in many regions from August will give another boost to our sales and ensure sustained good performance in future months," Goel said.
