Honda could be joining Volkswagen and Ford with sharing platforms for a number of vehicles to reduce costs and increase sales.
According to The Nikkei, Honda is looking at using a common platform for the Accord, Civic, and CR-V. The three models would share 40 to 50% parts when the next generation models would arrive from 2015 to 2017. Currently, the Civic and CR-V share around 20% of parts and neither model shares with the Accord.
Honda is also planning to increase global sales, setting a goal of 6 million vehicles by 2016.
