Honda Mobilio Discontinued in India With New Shape

Honda appears to have silently pulled the plug on the Honda Mobilio MPV in India. While no official announcement has been made yet, the company has removed the Mobilio from its official website, pointing towards its discontinuation. In March this year, the automaker confirmed that it has ceased production of the seven-seat MPV. And finally, the car has now been taken down from the manufacturer’s official website altogether. The Mobilio was launched in July 2014 as a direct rival to the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga.

Honda Mobilio was built on the extended platform of the Brio that was based on the Amaze sedan. The New Honda Mobilio was available with a choice of two engine petrol and diesel. The petrol engine from the city made produce 119bhp of power and 145Nm of torque power. The diesel engine was generate the maximum power of 100bhp and 200Nm of torque power. As a result, it never managed to find a dedicated target audience in the Indian market.

Monthly sales settled around the 100 unit mark, which wasn’t enough to have a separate product in the portfolio. when Honda launched the BR-V crossover in India, the Mobilio became a redundant offering. The BR-V came at a similar price tag, was built on the same platform, but didn’t suffer from any significant cost cutting issues. Moreover, thanks to its SUV-like face, the BR-V looked visually more appealing than the Mobilio. It also came with an updated dashboard. This further hit the Mobilio’s sales and Honda appears to have finally got rid of the slow-selling MPV in India.
