HACPL started business operations in May 1994 with the launch of Civic, and added the City model to the production line-up in January 1997. Some 9 years after it started operations in Pakistan, HACPL achieved its 100,000-unit production milestone in December 2005, and 7 years later in July 2012, the 200,000-unit production milestone was achieved. 4 years later, the company achieved cumulative 300,000-unit production milestone in 2016 and just after 2 years the 400,000-unit milestone is achieved.
In celebration of the 400,000-unit production milestone, Honda is also offering a limited time special incentive of 1 Year Extendable Warranty against just Rs 4,000 to its customers.
