Coronavirus impact: Honda 2Wheelers retails 21,000 units and services 2.5 lakh bikes in May 2020
Honda 2Wheelers has announced that it has sold 21,000 units since it resumed operations in a phased manner and the company workshops across the country have serviced 2.5 lakh units. All the dealerships and workshops work while adhering to safety guidelines and preventive measures set by the government. This includes 45 per cent of Honda dealers and 30 per cent of its total network touchpoints. The company has circulated a manual that explains all the standard protocols that are to be followed while working in the post-lockdown world.
These numbers are a silver lining for the crippled auto sector and the company has announced lucrative deals to encourage the potential customers. Customers can avail up to 100 per cent loan to value, low down payment and savings of up to Rs. 12,000. Online booking of vehicles is also available at many dealerships and customers can also choose to buy the vehicle on EMI from a range of over 20 debit and credit cards.
Yadvinder Singh Guleria, director of sales and marketing at Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt Ltd, said, "In these challenging times, Honda 2Wheelers India is cautiously moving forward synergising with the new ecosystem. Safeguarding the health and well-being, Honda network is well-equipped and geared up to delight customers. With ready availability of six of India's favourite BSVI products, we are seeing increasing take-off in retails by the day. Growing numbers of vehicles reporting at our touchpoints for servicing is a testimony to customers' trust and assurance in Honda and our network readiness to serve them while taking care of new hygiene and social distancing norms."
