The company started exports in 2001 with its debut model Activa. While Honda’s cumulative exports crossed the 15-lakh mark in 2016, the next 15-lakh exports were added in only the last five years, which is more than three times the earlier speed, the company said in a statement.

Noteworthy, in 2020 the company established a new Overseas Business Expansion business vertical and also expanded its global exports footprint to developed markets like United States, Japan & Europe among others. Additionally, HMSI has also commenced the manufacturing of global engines from its 4th factory at Vithalapur, Gujarat.

‘Manufacturing hub for the world’

“Last year we flagged off our global engine production line at Vithalapur plant in Gujarat, thus strengthening our export capabilities further. As we make further inroads into developed markets, our reinstated focus on exports expansion takes HMSI one step closer to become a ‘Manufacturing hub for the world’,’’ Atsushi Ogata, Managing Director, President and Chief Executive Officer, HMSI, said.

Ltd. said, “In the last two decades, Honda has delighted more than 30 lac two-wheeler customers through exports. Led by Dio Scooter, we are expanding our export portfolio including both scooters & motorcycles. To establish high quality and efficiency, matching global standard, HMSI raised a dedicated Overseas Business vertical in 2020.”
