Honda Cars India’s only SUV, Elevate has achieved a new milestone. The brand has announced that they have sold more than 30,000 units since the SUV was first introduced back in September, last year. The Elevate shares its underpinnings with the 5th generation City and it took 6 months for the brand to achieve this milestone.

Honda Elevate goes against Kia Seltos, Hyundai Creta, Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder, MG Astor, Citroen C3 Aircross, Skoda Kushaq and Volkswagen Taigun.

In the Indian market, the Elevate is being sold only with a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder naturally aspirated unit. It produces 119 bhp of max power at 6,600 rpm and a peak torque output of 145 Nm at 4,300 rpm. It comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox or a CVT automatic transmission with 7-steps.

Honda has already announced that there will be no diesel or hybrid powertrain for the Elevate. Instead, the brand is working on an all-electric version of the Elevate that is supposed to launch in the next couple of years.
