Commenting on his decision, Saharia said, “Honda has been a great place to work and has provided me a huge opportunity to learn and to perform. The work culture and environment here has been extremely conducive and I have grown both as a professional and as a person. I look back with great satisfaction and pride at the achievements of Honda in India, and my contributions to it.”

He headed several critical functions in the company, including sales and dealer development in his nearly 10-year stint with the company.
