Honda Wants Additional 'Global Car' For Future Vehicle Line-Up
TOKYO (Reuters) - The head of Honda Motor Co. said on Tuesday he wanted one more global car in the auto maker's line-up to reach the next level of growth, rather than rely on many low-volume models catered to specific regions.
Honda, which could nudge past Nissan Motor Co. as Japan's second-biggest auto maker this year, is known for its lean product line-up, especially compared with domestic rivals Toyota Motor Corp. and Nissan.
The Civic and Accord sedans, the Fit hatchback and the CR-V crossover -- the four models Honda considers "global", or sold in at least three distinct regions -- last year accounted for 60 percent of its total sales combined.
