Honda Insight will be discontinued after 2014MY - report









Civic Hybrid cannibalizing sales

Sources within Honda have told AutoBlogGreen the Insight hybrid will be terminated after 2014 model year.
Less than two months ago we heard rumors about the Insight and CR-Z being withdrawn from Europe and now AutoBlogGreen says the Insight will not receive a 2015 model year in United States. They found out Honda's marketing department hasn't started work on advertising campaigns so it's unlikely the car will live on beyond 2014MY.
Many of you probably saw this coming since the Insight never really hit it off and it seems nowadays customers are willing to pay more for the Civic Hybrid while others will probably wait for a very possible hybrid version of the new Fit. There could also be a conventional-powered Fit sedan hitting stateside with some pretty good mpg figures.

The car was a lot of hype when it was first release was to uncut the Prius on price. Never really competed with the Prius like with any new segment in the auto industry seems the first one to market seems to control the market.

It is funny Honda citing the decision for not bringing the Hybrid Fit to the USA was customers were not willing to pay the higher price. But in the article stated that customers were willing to pay a higher price for the Civic Hybrid.
