Honda plans to introduce a new small car in the A-car segment before the tax rebate under the government's first-time car buyer programme ends this year.
Currently, five Honda models _ the Brio, Jazz, Jazz Hybrid, City and City CNG _ are qualified for the tax scheme rebate.
Customers can reserve a car to obtain the first-time car buyer tax rebate by Dec 31.
Honda Automobile (Thailand) will set another record in the automotive industry with the upcoming launch of its new A-car sedan.
The new car model will be powered by a 1.2-litre, 4-cylinder, 16-valve, 90-horsepower engine and a storage trunk with room enough for two golf bags.
It is also equipped with safety equipment including an anti-lock braking system and front dual SRS airbags.
The new model will be another choice for customers in the fourth quarter, before the first-car tax rebate programme ends.
Honda did not name the new car model or disclose its price.
