Honda Cars India Ltd (HCIL) today reported a 47.2 per cent jump in its domestic sales at 11,819 units in November.

The company had sold 8,029 units in the same month last year, HCIL said in a statement.

Last month, the company sold 154 units of small car Brio, 2,039 units of premium hatchback Jazz, 1,976 units of compact sedan Amaze and 3,315 units of mid-sized sedan City.

The company also sold 3,521 units of its new compact sports utility vehicle (SUV) WR-V. While SUV BR-V saw sales of 793 units, those of SUV CR-V stood at 21 units.

In addition, it exported a total of 283 units during the month under review.

On the sales performance, HCIL President and CEO Yoichiro Ueno said: "Last year, HCIL sales in November were severely affected by demonetisation.
