Honda pulls the plug on Insight

Email to a Friend

Honda Motor announced in February 2014 that it would discontinue production of the Insight, but we’re told that Honda still will sell its hybrid CR-Z and hybrid versions of the Accord and Civic.

Honda’s second-generation Insight came to market in the 2009 model year. The 2014 Insight’s MSRP starts at $18,725. Stephanie Brinley of market-research company IHS says the Insight struggled to deliver the range and power to compete with the Toyota Prius.

Honda didn’t return our request for comment, but Brinley says Honda has no plans to introduce another hybrid model to its fleet.
