After having stopped production of its new small car Brio, Honda is now taking steps to ensure that things get back on track by the beginning of the New Year. The company plans to source the components for Brio from China and hopes to return to normal production by February or March next year.
The biggest problem that Honda faces with the Brio is that it is made only in two countries, India and Thailand. This meant that there was no possibility of diverting parts meant for other countries to India as has been done by Toyota earlier.
Even though bookings have not been put on hold for the Brio, Honda is also having production issues with all its cars with bookings being suspended for its Jazz hatch. With the pending launch of the new City and the new sourcing plans for its smaller cars, we hope things get better for Honda and that they get back on track soon.
