In the worse taking back your comment in corporate history, Honda certainly is at the top… As Honda is indeed making a Nano fighter. On June 2008 Wall Street Journal article, Honda is dissing the Nano and betting that the booming middle class will choose bikes over small cars like the Nano. But what do you know? One year later Honda is making one, and will debut the car in January on an Indian auto expo.
The news is actually inline with Honda current CEO, Takanobu Ito statement in an interview done by Autocar magazine UK early this December. That there is a small car coming to Asia… So does Ito-san means this is the car that’s coming to India?
What we know that the car will be produced by Honda Siel Cars India Ltd. and is indeed smaller than the Fit/Jazz. The car will be targeted towards emerging countries and that’s about it… But what the heck is it? Honda already has quite a diverse Keii/small cars… What’s with the suspense people! As I’m certainly buying this car (if it has an auto) and Freed for the family (smiley face).
