Car maker Honda Siel Cars India on Thursday launched the third generation model of its Sedan, City, priced between Rs 7.7 lakh and Rs 8.9 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

The new Honda City would come in three different grades with both automatic and manual transmissions and would be available with a 1.5 litre i-VTEC engine.

Honda City is the one of the most successful car brands in the country. With this launch, India will become the largest market for Honda City, HSCI President and CEO M Takadegawa told reporters here.

Before India, the company has recently introduced its new City in Thailand.

Honda Motor Co. President Takeo Fukui on Thursday unveiled a new version of the City, Honda’s best-selling compact sedan in India, aiming to boost sales in this key emerging market as concern grows of a global slowdown in the auto industry.

With sales in the U.S., the world’s largest auto market, falling to their lowest levels in years, auto makers have looked to red hot markets like India and China to help pick up the slack.

But now, these other auto markets are also showing signs of weakness. In India, auto sales fell in August, the second monthly decline in a row. Sales in China also fell, marking the first decline in auto sales in two years.

“Even in India, they are not immune to the cyclical nature of the economy,” says Tatsuo Yoshida, an analyst for UBS Securities in Tokyo. “Investors have been very nervous about near term prospects of the Indian automobile market.”

Looking to draw buyers back into the dealer showrooms during the upcoming festival months in India, Honda’s new City model is part of a wave of new vehicle launches by car makers into the country’s increasingly crowded auto market.

In 2007, the current City model was Honda’s biggest seller, accounting for 37,000 of its total sales of 60,000 vehicles. In the first eight months of this year, sales of the current City are up 12% compared with the same period a year ago. The Japanese auto maker is expecting the new model to help lift Honda’s India sales above last year’s. Honda’s goal for 2008 is to sell 80,000 vehicles in India, though it may not reach that target because of the slowdown in the Indian car market.

Honda’s Mr. Fukui said the “sturdy” and “roomy” City is “Honda’s most significant model” in the Indian market. Though it would be considered a compact, entry-level vehicle in developed markets, the City is viewed as a premium vehicle preferred by business executives here. The new model will cost about 800,000 rupees, making it Honda’s least expensive vehicle in the Indian market but still beyond the reach of most car buyers.

Although Honda dominates the motorcycle market in India, the Japanese car maker doesn’t yet offer any models in India’s small car segment, which make up the vast majority of car sales.

The new City was also launched this month in Thailand, one of 39 countries where the model has been sold since the first-generation City was launched in 1996. Honda is planning to make the City one of its core models, similar to the Civic, Accord, CR-V and Fit.

Xbox Next to Launch in India

Despite obstacles of low broadband penetration, Microsoft plans to bring its next-generation console to India.

Microsoft has revealed intentions to bring the Xbox to India, announcing yesterday that it has started research with the Indian Market Research Bureau (IMRB) to understand the market ahead of introducing the console.

"The potential for PC games as well Xbox in India is very huge spanning across homes, schools as well as enterprises. The current generation of Xbox will not be available here but we are planning to roll out the next generation Xbox Next in India," said Microsoft Home and Entertainment Division Regional Sales Director Yolanda Chan to Indian news site "Twenty per cent of the IT people love to play games and offer good potential."

The company cites the low broadband penetration and inadequate sales and distribution channels as reasons for not bringing the current generation Xbox to India.

Microsoft has launched the current Xbox in Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore, and is evaluating the possibility of launching in India, China, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam. The company is especially setting its sights on China, which has seen an increase in demand for games especially in the online arena.
