Goel has been a part of HCIL ever since its inception, the spokesperson said adding, he has "made an invaluable contribution to our business while leading several critical functions in the company. We wish him the very best in his future endeavours". He will step down from his position on December 24, 2021. 

"It has been decided, Yuichi Murata will take charge as Director, Marketing and Sales, Honda Cars India Ltd," the spokesperson added. Goel's departure comes at a time when Honda is struggling in the Indian passenger vehicles market. 

Last year in December, the company had announced closure of manufacturing operations at its Greater Noida facility in Uttar Pradesh as part of realignment of manufacturing operations with the goal of improving business efficiency. 

With it, the company also discontinued CR-V and Civic models in the country. Both the models were manufactured at the plant.
