Honda Atlas halts the production of Civic X Turbo
In 2016, Honda Atlas introduced the first locally assembled turbocharged vehicle in Pakistan. The new Civic aka Civic X was offered in three variants, i-VTEC Oriel, Turbo X and i-VTEC. Due to the market dynamics and the car’s unique shape, it became an overnight hit for Honda Atlas and helped the company register record sales in the first few months of its launch. However, the company has stopped entertaining the orders for Honda Civic Turbo X. This has been gaining a lot of attention on PW Forums for quite a while and we decided to explore the situation to see if it holds any truth.
A simple call and visit to a Honda dealership revealed that the company is not taking any orders for this car. All the (unsold) units are called back and the car will be made available to Pakistani consumers in March 2018. The staff members said that due to a technical issue, the production of this car is halted and will be resumed as per company’s policy. The dealership staff further remarked that all the owners of Turbo X are being notified to get their cars diagnosed. Honda dealerships are offering a full refund or an option to switch their order to 1.8 i-VTEC Oriel to their customers who booked Civic Turbo X and were about to receive their deliveries.
