According to sources cited by Autocar Professional, Honda will phase out diesel engines for its automobiles in India starting early next year in order to comply with the new Real Driving Emissions (RDE) rules, which are anticipated to go into effect in April 2023.

Takuya Tsumura, the president and CEO of Honda Cars India, previously stated: “With the diesel, clearing RDE is quite difficult. The majority of brands were unable to continue using diesel even in Europe.”

The 1.5-liter diesel engine that Honda uses in certain of its vehicles, including the WR-V crossover, Amaze, and the fifth-generation Honda City, will be discontinued the next year. According to the source, the Japanese automaker has already discontinued selling the diesel engine in select Amaze and Jazz, and WR-V models. Along with the 1.5-liter diesel engine, Honda is probably going to stop producing and exporting its 1.6-liter diesel engine starting in March of the next year. The Honda CR-V that is offered on the worldwide market is currently powered by a 1.6-liter engine that is shipped to Thailand. When the Amaze made its debut in 2013, Honda unveiled the 1.5L engine. The Honda sedan and small sedan models have since utilized the engine. It produces 200 Nm of maximum torque and 98.6 horsepower of maximum power.
