It has emerged that the bookings for the Honda Jazz and the Brio have been suspended due to the fact that Honda is unable to match the demand.  Before you start thinking that they are selling in the millions here is the reason.  As it is the tsunami in March led to production line problems as some components of the cars are still made in Japan.  Now the floods in Thailand have meant that Honda’s plant there is also not functioning fully and therefore production of parts that come from Thailand also has been hit.  It is for this reason that Honda is not very keen on taking fresh bookings.  It is estimated that the Brio will be freely available from January, 2012 but the Jazz will only be on from March, 2012.
