Mumbai, September 21: Most car makers in India are discontinuing diesel cars. The name of the world famous car company Honda will also be added to this. Recently, Honda has hinted that they may phase out diesel cars soon. Honda entered the diesel car segment in 2013 with the Amaze sub-compact sedan. Currently, the company’s fifth-generation Honda City, Amaze and WR-V models feature diesel engines. Recently, Honda Cars India CEO Takuya Tsumura told The Times of India, “We don’t think much about diesel cars now. So we will not make diesel cars. Currently this is made difficult by Real Driving Emission (RDE) regulations. When this rule came in Europe, most brands could not continue with diesel cars. Something similar is happening in India.

The new rules will come into effect from next year:

The RDE standard will be implemented in the country from next year. After implementation of this rule, CAFE-2 i.e. Corporate Average Fuel Economy 2 standards will be implemented. After the new rules come into force, diesel cars will have to meet emission standards. Currently, Honda sells a total of four vehicles in the country. These include the subcompact SUV WR-V, premium hatchback Jazz, mid-size sedan City and compact sedan Amaze.

Company shall not cease business in India:

On the other hand, Honda has dismissed the reports of shutting down its business in India. The company has made it clear that the company has no intention of closing its business in India. This deadline may be extended in the coming days.
