Amazed by the steller show by its ambitious "Amaze " , Honda is betting big on india in terms of investments and already looking out for the feasible region to set up their third plant . this is catering to the demand created by Amaze Notch backed by diesel mill (i-Dtec ) and their 2020 strategy to increase the market share in indian subcontinent.
since all other developed countries have saturated and to proceed furthur Honda is betting big on developing countries like india for its future survival.

Honda as a parent group is looking out developing countries for its growth for its 2 wheeler and 4 wheeler segments and have good expansion plans for both the sectors.
