2020 Honda City: 10,800 Units Delivered With 15,200 Total Bookings

Honda Malaysia just released its sales figures for the 2020. With over 60,469 units sold, the Japanese company maintains its position as the top non-national car brand in Malaysia for the sixth consecutive year. Aside from that, the carmaker also delivered 10,800 units of the all-new Honda City to date; that’s really quite impressive.

In December 2020 alone, Honda Malaysia delivered 5,500 units of the City, which is the highest monthly sales in the history of the B-segment sedan. On top of that, the City also received 15,200 bookings – it’s proving to be a real winner for the Japanese carmaker.

According to Honda Malaysia, the V model of the City – the range-topping petrol variant – accounts for 52% of total sales. The Platinum White Pearl colour option is also the most popular choice, representing 26% of overall sales for the City. It’ll be interesting to see if the highest-end RS e:HEV variant – this hybrid model is expected to be launched sometime this month – will further bolster the sales of the sedan.

Of the 60,469 units sold by Honda Malaysia, the City actually made up 34% of that figure; it is the carmaker’s most popular model in 2020. This is followed by the Honda Civic; the C-segment sedan accounts for 20% of total sales. In third place is the Honda HR-V with 17% contribution.

Now that the government’s sales tax exemption for locally assembled (CKD) cars – which is the majority of Honda models sold here in Malaysia – has been extended to 30 June 2021, we reckon the carmaker’s strong sales performance will maintain its momentum. Not only is the range-topping RS e:HEV variant of the City arriving here soon, Honda Malaysia is also running a Chinese New Year promotion until 31 January 2021.
