THP Ghana Limited, Ghana Limited, formerly The Honda Place has launched the new Honda HR-V at its showroom in Accra.
According to its Country Director, Mahesh Mahatni, it will continue to invest in the country and become a household brand.
Mahatni cited investments made in the company’s human capital as one of the major reasons for its success in Ghana.
According to him, though the company is relatively young as compared to other automobile companies in the country it continues to stand tall, attributing this success to the hard work of staff and the support of customers.
“From time to time, we send staff overseas for training purposes. Another goal is to expand our operations in Ghana, to employ more Ghanaians to improve their livelihoods”.
“One of our goals is to invest in our local staff’s technical development through their education & technical training”, he explained.
Manish Daryanani, Business Head for Sales & Marketing, mentioned in his speech that HR-V aims to be a lifestyle icon that is confident, visually pleasing and a pleasure to drive, bringing excitement and enriching daily lives.
“The HR-V is larger than its predecessor and has longer wheelbase which combined with magic seats provide class leading space and utility for an adventurous weekend escape. This new model is primarily targeted towards Generation-C who are always connected, computerised, clicking and choose things with consideration while sharing their choice and experience with friends, family and peers. The New HR-V will empower users to explore a new self”, he added.
Meanwhile Japan’s Ambassador to Ghana, Hisanobu Mochizuki, has commended Ghana for its efforts to boost industrialisation by establishing an automotive hub.
According to him, the Japanese government is ever ready to support the country’s industrialisation drive.
“Therefore, I would like to commend Ghana‘s efforts to establish itself as a regional automotive hub as part of its industrial transformative agenda. Taking this opportunity, I would like to renew our commitment to strongly support the initiative.”
He further noted that advancing the industrial sector of the country will not only boost the economy but develop the country’s human capital as well.
“As the world emerges from a global pandemic, it has become important to support the private sector to drive industrial growth to pre-pandemic levels in countries worst hit by the Covid-19. We believe that strong industries, including the automotive industry, can boost human resource development and drive the economic growth in Ghana. “
The new Honda HR-V comes with a stylish, strong, sporty, and expressive design, featuring a bold new grille, longer hood and sleek roofline.
The spacious interior is characterised by an automatic climate control which enables the driver and passengers to change the A/C temperature to adapt to the outside environment. A spacious cabin and cargo space, 8-inch Display Monitor and a 1.5 litres fuel efficient engine are some added features which makes the new Honda HR-V unique.
The vision of THP Ghana Limited is to become the leading automobile company in Ghana, by selling world-class vehicles, and by providing first-class workshop &after-sales service facilities with original spare parts for HONDA.
