Honda NSX has left the Australian market: information about the model has already been removed from the official website, dealers do not have stocks. This was reported by the Car Expert resource.
The 581-horsepower all-wheel drive hybrid with a 3.5-liter V6 and three electric motors did not gain popularity on the Green continent, probably because of the price of 420 thousand Australian dollars (300 thousand US dollars). According to local journalists, for less money you can buy a rear-wheel drive Lamborghini Huracan Evo, and if you add 40 thousand dollars-all-wheel drive. Apparently, no one will miss the NSX in Australia: if the company managed to sell at least three copies in 2019, then in 2020 it did not buy any at all.
In addition to the NSX, Honda has removed the City from the Australian product line, and next year will get rid of the Jazz. The basis of the local model range will be the CR-V and HR-V crossovers and the Civic family (sedan, hatchback and hot hatch Type R). In addition, Accord and Odyssey will remain. From July 2021, Honda Australia will switch to a new centralized business model: prices for all cars will be fixed-as well as rewards for dealers who will no longer buy cars from the manufacturer.
In the past decade, Australia has completely lost its own car industry: in the past few years, the factories of Ford, General Motors (Holden) and Toyota have been closed. All companies considered local car Assembly to be unreasonably expensive.
