Japanese auto major Honda Siel Cars India on Wednesday resumed normal production at its Greater Noida factory that had been hit by supply shortage due to the floods in Thailand in November.
Production has been resumed at 370 cars a day, which will be ramped up to 440 cars a day by the end of this month. There is an estimated backlog of 15,000 cars in India, with its recently-launched small car Brio topping the list with 7,000 bookings, followed by 4,000 for the Jazz and 3,500 for the City. The company said the entire backlog would be cleared by March-end.
“The production of Brio is resuming from mid-February 2012, while the production of Jazz will start towards the end of February,” the company said on Wednesday.
