The Japanese automotive giant, Honda Cars India, stayed quiet in the Indian automotive market for a while before unveiling its newest mid-size SUV, the Elevate. Taking its time, the company crafted the Elevate SUV to suit Indian buying preferences while also positioning it as a global model. People are already hyped up about the Elevate, and to attract more buyers, the company has recently released a brand new teaser announcing that bookings are now open for the SUV.

The new teaser for the Honda Elevate has been shared by the Japanese carmaker on their official channel, Honda Cars India, on YouTube and other social media platforms. It starts with an exterior shot of the stunning Phoenix Orange Pearl-colored Elevate. The teaser then quickly showcases the SUV’s single-pane electric sunroof, followed by the front two seats and the dashboard of the interior. Moving on, the teaser displays the car’s rear seats and then shows two cycles fitted inside the car with the rear seats folded down. Lastly, the teaser announces that bookings for the Elevate are now open.

As mentioned earlier, the Honda Elevate will be a global mid-size SUV, designed with a strong focus on meeting the demands and preferences of the Indian market. A key highlight of the Elevate is its shared platform with the renowned Honda City sedan. Built on the same Global Small Car platform, this not only ensures low development costs but also guarantees a competitive price tag for the SUV, without compromising on quality and performance.
