Car manufacturers are trying to drive down their BS4 inventories before BS6 emission norms come into place from April 2020. The Supreme Court last year ordered that BS4 vehicle should not be sold across the country post-March 31, 2020. The Bharat Stage norms are instituted by the government to regulate air pollutants coming out from motor vehicles.
In view of the upcoming BS6 norms, Japanese manufacturer Honda is also trying to empty its BS4 inventory, offering discounts on both 2020 and 2019 stock. Here are some of the models, which can fetch you a great discount.
