Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI), Honda’s automobile business unit in the Philippines, said it sold 1,700 vehicles in August.
To date, a total of 12,167 Honda vehicles have been sold in 2015, indicating a 48 percent increase compared to its sales in the same period last year.
The lone locally-produced Honda vehicle – the City – remains the company’s best seller, contributing 44 percent to HCPI’s August sales.
The company also said the recently launched Mobilio shows a lot of promise as it registered a 22 percent contribution to HCPI August sales.
For the month of August, the Mobilio garnered 830 new reservations. The Mobilio is Honda’s first seven-seater Multi-purpose Utility Vehicle (MUV) that addresses the market’s need for an affordable family vehicle.
From September 25 to 27, Honda will hold a car display at the Alabang Town Center activity center to give customers an opportunity to take a look at the vehicles being offered and to test drive models they may be planning to buy.
Cars to be displayed include the City, Mobilio, Accord, and Odyssey. Event participants will have the opportunity to avail of cash discounts and other special offers that will be available only during the event, the company said.
