Brio has emerged as an exemplary performer and this steady increase in the sales signifies the success of our models launched recently. This month, our focus was on production of Brio so as to maximize delivery of Brio to all our waiting customers. We are confident that we would continue this performance in the new financial year and Brio and new City will propel growth for Honda in the near future."

The consolidated sales of HSCI during FY 2011-12 stood at 54,427 vehicles, as compared to 59,463 units during FY 2010-11.
