Honda aims to sell 6m cars by 2017

Honda wants its car sales worldwide to double to over six million vehicles in the coming five years in an ambitious recovery plan after Japan's 2011 disasters.

"We have now reached the stage of going on the offensive," said Honda Motor President Takanobu Ito to reporters when he revealed the company's global objective for the fiscal year ending March 2017.

For the fiscal year through March 2012, the Japanese carmaker sold 3.1 million vehicles.

India, China and other emerging markets will be the motor pushing growth and the company will improve its range of less expensive models designed for these markets, Ito said at Honda's Tokyo headquarters.

Next year Honda will start its worldwide release of its remodelled Fit subcompact, which is called Jazz in some regions. The car is expected to help the bottom line, he said.

He added that a new, small sport-utility vehicle will be included in the Fit range of Honda cars for sale.
