  Honda Sets Sales Target Of 100,000 Units In 2017

PETALING JAYA, Feb 16 (Bernama) -- Honda Malaysia has set a sales target of 100,000 units this year, an eight per cent increase, compared with 91,830 units sold last year.

Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer Katsuto Hayashi said the company's market share last year was 15.8 per cent and the sales target was set in order to maintain its market leadership position on non-national marque for this year.

"Despite most analysts predicting a cautious view, we believe 2017 will have a positive outlook for the automotive industry and market sentiment will gradually improve in this region.

"With this, we are forecasting the Total Industry Volume (TIV) for Malaysia to be 600,000 units this year," he said at a media briefing here today.

Honda Malaysia made a remarkable achievement last year, achieving the second-highest market share among Honda's global operations in 2016, with 91,830 vehicles sold.

Hayashi said the focus on class-leading value for money products and emphasis on customer satisfaction would continue to be Honda's top priorities this year.

The Malaysian market will get up of four new models this year.

The new BR-V (Bold Runabout Vehicle) introduced in January received outstanding 7,000 bookings to date -- equivalent to nine months sales target for the model, said Hayashi.

Honda Malaysia also began collecting bookings since early February for the New City, which is built on the success of the fourth generation model.

The New City was on display for media preview at the function.

Honda Malaysia Group Vice-President Akhbar Danial said the New City comes with upgrades of advanced features, while maintaining its class-leading spaciousness and comfort.

"This energy efficient vehicle (EEV) certified that New City will provide excellent fuel efficiency and will be able to attract more upgraders and replacement car buyers.

"Offering 'C-segment (medium car) features at B-segment (small car) prices'," added Akhbar.

  You should only use the hazard lights to warn
traffic that you've had to stop in some sort of emergency. Turning on the hazard lights and still driving on is dangerous. If more and more
motorists use their hazard lights when they
are still moving, those who use them when they actually stall would be in danger of being
knocked into by traffic behind them
