Honda Siel Cars India, one of the leading car manufacturers in the country, sold 98 Civic Hybrid cars in a single day.

This amazing sales figure was recorded in just one day after the company had slashed the price of Honda Civic Hybrid by a whooping Rs 8 Lakh that accounts for nearly 40% discount.

Sale of 98 hybrid cars is much more than what Honda managed to sell in the entire span of time since the car made its first debut in June 2008. The company further aims to sell 100 more cars in the next few days.

As declared by a company official, the offer is for a limited period and in this limited time span Honda hopes to create a benchmark in the Indian car industry. The first batch of the hybrid imported from Japan is already sold and now the second batch is on its way. Honda is eager to take in more orders with respect to the demands from Honda car dealers.

Honda Civic Hybrid with its new price of Rs 13.6 Lakh is almost equal to the top variant price of its petrol counterpart. This price parity has led to a sudden increase in demand for this hugely fuel-efficient hybrid. The sales are more in metros like Mumbai and Delhi, and fuel-sensitive areas like Punjab and Hyderabad.
