Honda Vietnam sold 3,226 CR-V cars in December 2020, the highest level since this model was launched in Vietnam since 2008.
Sales of the last month of 2020 of the Honda CR-V skyrocketed, ranking third in the top 10 best-selling cars of the whole market month. In the same segment, the Mazda CX-5 sold 1,854 units, Hyundai Tucson ranked third with 1,762 units to customers.
Since moving to domestic assembly in July 2020, Honda’s SUV model sales have increased gradually in the last months of the year thanks to a preferential policy of 50% reduction in registration fee from the Government for domestically assembled vehicles. The company also offers a discount of 50% of the remaining registration fee, helping customers save more money when owning a car.
In the domestically assembled version, the design is slightly tweaked compared to the imported version, and the technology has also been upgraded by the Japanese company. The Honda Sensing safety package includes: collision mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control including low speed, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist and adaptive automatic lighting.
The new CR-V receives additional upgrades such as LaneWatch lane-tracking camera, which helps drivers improve visibility in the passenger seat, avoiding blind spots; wireless charger and electric trunk opening. The above equipment helps CR-V increase competitiveness with competitors in the same segment.
The representative of the company said that the CR-V is favored by Vietnamese customers thanks to its sporty performance and exciting driving experience. In addition, this model has a 5 + 2 configuration, 5 seats higher than rivals CX-5 or Tucson.
