BEIJING – Honda will export only left-hand-drive versions of its Jazz small-segment car to Europe from China.
The first Jazz models will be shipped to the Belgian port of Ghent in June, said Masaya Nagai, spokesman for Honda Motor (China) Investment Co.
The shipment will only be a couple hundred cars, said Nagai. Honda only plans to make around 10,000 Jazz units in China for export this year.
Honda’s plant in Guangzhou in southern China builds only left-hand-drive versions of the Jazz, sold as the Fit in China.
“We will continue to source right-hand-drive [Jazz] cars from Japan,” said Honda Europe spokesman Chris Rogers.
