    Default Bleak sale and production of New Civic

    According to pama website:

    only 4015 Honda Civic have been produced in 8 months, keeping this avg. this year production will be around 6000 units of new civic which is far less than last couple of years of production.
    in 2004-05 , Honda produced 12,359 civics
    in 2005-06 , Honda produced 12,274 civics
    in 2006-07 , Honda produced 5,610 civics , keeping in mind that new civic introduced in 2006-07 , which tells that Honda new civic lost its edge totally now,

    comparing with corolla :

    in 2004-05 , Toyota produced 23,007 Corolla
    in 2005-06 , Toyota produced 31,094 corolla
    in 2006-07 , Toyota produced 35,036 corolla

    In this year only in 8 months toyota produced 21,452 corolla which is inline with their recent targets of 32,000 units of corolla to be produced this year. Despite roumers of new corolla to be introduced this year , toyota is doing well.

    Honda is facing a challange and lost by introducing 1.8L engine as fuel cost is in upward trend and will reamin high for times to come. Another reason is high selling price of new civics which is also post a negative impact. Now Honda has to take a decision of introducing 1.5L and 1.6L engines in New Civics or just keep selling 5,000 to 6,000 units and post a profit/loss balance sheet with numbers in brakets (----------) , I hope u all know what I mean.

    Production time will increase off course the 8th gen civic's body is bigger, its heavier, its more luxurious n has digital tachometer so the production time is likely to increase but I cant say anythin abt sales as cylestyne as already said something for which dere exsists no answer!!!

    isnt dat coz honda is only producing one variant in this car
    just imagine if toyota only produces altis ,, i guess its sales gonaa go below the civics, (hehehehe)
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    The fuel economy is as good as an 1.6 liter. 1.8 using more fuel is a myth as long as you don't over rev it.

    For sharing purpose...honda is now targeting the niche market segment by targeting the upper class. The thing with toyota is they are making econo-level sedans..
    One more reason is that toyota has maintained same shape for last 6-7 years, while for a civic...in the new reborn, even the powerplant is 100 re-designed. They are producing less to maintain the demand as elite class ppl always look out for distinguish set of wheels instead of wheels that r used by a family, a taxi company, an airport cab n as a security car for elite govt. officials. i hope u got my point.

    never believe basic statistics.

    as many have already mentioned,.. it's innacurate as they are comparing the 1.8 civic to ALL the corolla variants.
    1. A car is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, 2. Resale wont save your life in an accident, 3. Genius has limits, stupidity has none, 4. Never argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level & beat you with experience, 5. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young! 6. انّا للہ و انّا الیہ راجعون

    And to think honda's quota for the new civic was more than 19,000 units in the first year of production.

    Just wanted a clarification that whether the sale of corolla mentioned above is only for corolla altis or combined sale of XLi, Gli, 2.0D and Altis, as all of these models are corolla.
