Honda Cars India has pulled the plugs on the BR-V as the model hasn't received the mandatory BS 6 emission update. The car has already been taken down from the company's official website.

The Honda BR-V was introduced in India in late-2015 and was launched in May 2016. It wasn't a high-selling product in the country as last year, Honda sold only 2,857 units of the 'pseudo-SUV', while in 2018, 7,140 units were sold. As the numbers suggest, the BR-V's yearly sales were falling and that too by a significant margin. It had similarities to the Mobilio which too had failed to attarct buyers and had been discontinued
