In Swindon

Seen two different (blue, white) new HR-Vs in Swindon today within the space of half an hour. Both had registrations starting OY67 so I checked with my contact at the Swindon Honda dealer (which registers cars starting with R) who confirmed my suspicion that the Honda factory staff are now allowed to have lease HR-Vs. Previously, the HR-V wasn't an option for them due to the supply shortage. Presumably supply has now improved (or has demand shrunk as indicated by the overall September registration data?). I had previously heard a rumour about Honda sourcing the European HR-Vs from Japan instead of Mexico. Perhaps this has now happened although this report http://europe.autonews.com/article/2017 ... from-japan indicates that the shift will take place in 2019. I anticipate seeing a lot more HR-Vs.
