The scooter plant, which is the fourth two-wheeler manufacturing facility of Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt Ltd (HMSI) in the country, has a total capacity to produce 1.2 million automatic scooters annually.

The company has invested Rs 1,100 crore to set up this facility, where Honda will make its flagship brand of scooter Activa and Dio, said company's Group Vice President and Director V Sridhar.

"This plant in Gujarat has become our fourth two-wheeler plant in India after Haryana, Rajasthan and Karnataka. This plant is having the capacity to churn out 12 lakh automatic scooters, mainly Activa and Dio.

At present, HMSI manufactures 46 lakh two-wheelers, including bikes, in three of their plants annually. With this new plant, its total two-wheeler production capacity in the country will increase by 26 percent to 58 lakh units by the end of this year, Sridhar added.
