CRAZY – Honda Sells 2 Crore Activas in Last 7 Years

Honda Activa sales is a phenomenon that defies all studies and calculations. Can you imagine 2 crore units in 7 years…!!!

All of us are pretty aware of the fact that Activa is India’s largest selling scooter. The family scoot has achieved its next milestone – sales of 3 crore units. This has come in 22 years of the scooter’s existence.

But wait a minute – after the first crore units that came in about 15 years (which is itself crazy fast), Honda ousted two crore Activas in the last seven years. This is simply mind-boggling! No other scooter is anywhere close to where the Activa is – in terms of both popularity and sales.

Amidst all this, Honda also tried female-specific Activa-i – that is probably the only product in the Activa portfolio that did not do well and is no more on sale.

Meanwhile, the Activa continues its golden run bearing the highest selling 2-wheeler in India mark. Its popularity and craze is an envy for every other manufacturer. And at this speed, the 5 crore (5 C-R-O-R-E) sales mark is not far away…
