Mumbai: Japanese auto major Honda on Friday said it plans to roll out a new generation Jazz next year.
"We have plans to launch the new generation Jazz in the country some time next year," Honda Cars India senior vice-president for marketing and sales Janeshwar Sen told reporters here at the launch of sedan Amaze.
Its first diesel offering, sedan Amaze, has been priced between Rs 5.10 lakh and Rs 7.64 lakh (ex-showroom Navi Mumbai).
Currently, the company sells five models in the domestic market: sedans Accord and City, utility vehicle CRV, and hatchbacks Brio and Jazz, apart from the latest Amaze which also comes in petrol variant.
The company, which produced 6,600 units of Jazz last year, has temporarily suspended its production since February, said Sen, adding it had also stopped production of Civic last year.
"At the moment there is no inventory either at plant or with our dealers," he added.
Sen also said Honda is studying the market to develop a seven-seater multi-purpose vehicle from the Brio platform, adding, "whether we will introduce it or not is not yet decided".
