      The Honda Insight Reaches the End of the Road

    The tough life of the Honda Insight will come to a close. Bloomberg reports that Honda told dealers back in November to not place any more orders for the model as production would come to a close at the end of the February. This news comes a week after Honda announced sales of the Insight and CR-Z would end Europe.

    The Insight was the first hybrid vehicle to be sold in the U.S. just before the start of the millennium and paved the way for many more vehicles down the road. Honda ended production of the first-generation model in 2006. Three years later, Honda introduced the second-generation Insight. However the new model wasn't able to keep up with the Toyota Prius, which would become the best selling hybrid vehicle ever. At the moment in the U.S., Honda dealers are currently sitting on a 237 day supply of Insights.

    It isn't clear whether or not Honda will replace the Insight or not at this current time.

    Good riddance... Wretched little car.... I'm not anti-hybrid or anything, but these were positively awful cars to drive. Uncomfortable seating position, no power, terrible tires and still loud.

    If looking for a Hybrid Honda, the Civic is better in every measurable way for only a small difference in cash.

    apparently Honda has even had ridiculous leases on these from time to time and they still can't spark ! any interest.

    Prius has their cult, pure EV's are useless, the Volt is the way to go and Honda has just never found a sweet hybrid spot.
