Honda Activa crosses 2 crore volume mark
Mumbai: Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India's (HMSI) flagship Activa brand of automatic scooters has crossed 2 crore-customer-mark, the second largest two-wheeler maker said Wednesday.
Activa, which pushed Hero Motorcop's flagship Splendor to second position in May 2017, has retained top spot as largest selling two-wheeler brand in the country. It is also the largest selling two-wheeler globally.
"We've booked our 20 millionth (2 crore) Activa customer today (Wednesday). While it has taken us 15 years to get the first 10 millionth customer, we have achieved the second 10 millionth customer in just three years," the company said in a statement.
HMSI, which runs the world's largest scooter-only plant at Vithalapur in Gujarat with a 1.2 million annual capacity recently announced an additional 0.6 million capacity expansion there to meet the growing demand for automatic scooters.
Contributing over 33 per cent of global volume for the parent Honda, HMSI is the largest volume contributor for the Japanese company.
