The 2012 Best Honda Looks

Honda is looking to China’s car market, the world’s largest, to help recover after the car maker has been buffeted by natural disasters in Japan and Thailand last year, which caused its global production of descent from a fifth of 2.91 million cars.

The Chinese market is growing more slowly after Beijing scrapped incentives for small cars last year. Overall sales rose 5.2% in the last year, the slower pace, given that Chinese culture is taken off at the end of this century.

In January, Guangqi Honda said it was targeting 10% growth in turnover in 2012 after last year’s figures were affected by the earthquake in Japan and floods in Thailand, according to local media. Guangqi Honda sales target of more than 400,000 vehicles this year, up from 362,000 in 2011.
