The number of export units stood at 64.

Honda is now gearing up to launch BS 6 versions of its entire product line-up. "Our despatches were limited and in line with our plan of total supply availability for the month. We are determined to enhance the supplies with subsequent introduction of BS-6 versions of other models and bring down the waiting period for our customers," said Rajesh Goel, Senior Vice President and Director – Marketing and Sales, Honda Cars India. "Since we have been supplying only BS 6 cars from January onwards and dealers were aggressively liquidating their BS 4 stock, our channel is left with negligible stock of BS 4 cars as of February end."

Honda has been producing only BS 6 models in both its plants since January. The company is now readying the new City for India with a possible launch late March.
