Looks like Japanese auto maker Honda's latest entrant in the MPV market Mobilio will also prove to be a successful endeavour in the country, as emerging reports suggest that the car is witnessing good demand in India.
Mobilio, the first MPV offering of Honda to the auto enthusiasts in the country, made its grand debut on 23 July. The bookings for the vehicle had started earlier this month and now a recent report of IndianAutosBlog, citing Jnaneswar Sen, Senior Vice President for Marketing and Sales, claims that the Mobilio has already received more than 5,800 bookings in the country. The MPV which is also on sale in Indonesia has been a success so far and the Honda hopes to repeat the same in India.
