Snapshot: Honda Cars have discontinued Accord in India

According to a report by Economic Times, Japanese carmaker Honda have discontinued their D-Segment sedan, Accord in India due to lack of demand.

"We have stopped production of the current eighth-generation of Accord in India and we would be looking at the next generation of the sedan for Indian customers, though the exact launch details have not been worked out yet," said,  Mr. Jnaneshwar Sen, senior vicepresident for marketing and sales at Honda Cars India.

Honda's Indian subsidiary has sold just 272 Accords in the past eight months of the current fiscal year. In fact, since the launch of the eighth-generation Accord in 2008, Honda has sold only 11,492 units of the car here in the country. 

In India, the Accord offered two petrol engine options namely 2.4-litre engine producing 180 ps and 222 Nm of torque and 3.5-litre V6 engine pushing a substantial 275 PS and 339 Nm of torque. 

The ninth-generation Accord will make its global debut by the early 2014 and Honda would also be looking at a diesel option along with the two petrol options in the upcoming model.
