/ Honda PH launches hybrid variant of CR-V
Honda Cars Philippines said Wednesday it expects to sell 300 units of the 6th generation CRV each month, with the first CR-V 2.0 RS e:HEV E-CVT full hybrid variant representing 30 percent of the projected sales.
The all-new CR-V debuted Wednesday at the Grand Hyatt Manila in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. “We are looking at growing the brand faster than the market. And with the launch of the All-New CR-V and the best-selling BR-V, we are optimistic we will see improved sales by the end of the year,” said company general manager for sales Louie Soriano.
Honda said pre-selling numbers showed more than 200 units were pre-ordered for both the new CR-V petrol and hybrid variants.
Honda’s venture into the electrified cars platform stems from the goal of realizing carbon neutrality for all products and corporate activities by 2050.
“We want our hybrid line-up to be distinguished as full hybrid as it built to perform three driving modes –electric, petrol and engine,” Soriano said.
