The company sold 5,493 units in the domestic market in the month of December 2013 as against 4,242 units sold during December 2012, registering a sales growth of 30 per cent.

“With the best of both petrol and diesel technologies available in Honda City, we are very confident about the success of the model, which will significantly contribute to our business growth in India,” Hironori Kanayama, President and Chief Executive Officer of the auto major reportedly said.

The company sold a total of 73,000 units in FY13 and is aiming to sell 1.2 lakh cars in the current fiscal (FY14).

The company had launched the first-generation Honda City in India in 1998 and has so far sold 4.3 lakh units of the car.
