The All-New HR-V has set good momentum in bookings, setting new benchmark for Honda Malaysia’s SUV segment with more than 7,000 bookings received in one month. The V variant led the pack with 65% of the total units booked, while the S and E variants account for 15% and 20% respectively.
The unexpectedly high record bookings have led to a four-month waiting period, and Honda Malaysia is currently reviewing its production scheduling. With the All-New HR-V being produced at the No.2 Line plant in Pegoh, Malacca which has flexible production schedule, Honda Malaysia is able to promptly revise the production plan and is working hard to reduce the waiting period. Honda Malaysia apologises for the delay in delivery and will announce the new waiting period once it has been finalised.
Honda Malaysia strives to ensure that the cars will be delivered to customers within a reasonable period. However, the company will not rush its production as quality remains a top priority. Customer satisfaction is of utmost importance and Honda Malaysia is mindful not to jeopardize its quality.
Honda Malaysia attributes the good market acceptance to its customers for their continuous support and confidence in Honda products and services.
