Honda India has announced that the production of the BR-V will come to an end, but the BR-V will still be offered in South Africa.
Honda’s 7-seater BR-V is on the rocks as production comes to an end in India but the versatile 7-seater will forge on in the local market.
"Honda Motor Southern Africa has no plans to discontinue the BR-V and is currently securing sufficient stock of the BR-V from India while the alternate factory is being set up for production," says Dinesh Govender, General Manager of Automobiles at Honda Motor Southern Africa.
Honda SA, however, has not divulged where the BR-V will be sourced from going forward. Other than India, the BR-V is also produced in countries such as Thailand, Pakistan, Malaysia and Indonesia.
The BR-V is still powered by the same 1.5-litre petrol engine with 88 kW and 145 Nm and can be had with either a 6-speed manual transmission or a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).
