Honda to increase 2010 Insight production following strong demand in Japan

Recommended Posts


Full Article @ MotorTrend

Honda will ramp up production of its new Insight hybrid starting this April, according to reports. The Japanese automaker is reported to have orders for nearly three times its monthly sales target since the vehicle launched on February 6 in Japan.

"The response has been overwhelming," Hiroshi Kobayashi, deputy chief operating officer for Honda's domestic operations told Reuters. "We will have to increase production plans."

According to Kobayashi, the wait list for a new Honda Insight is up to one month in Japan, but just how much Honda can increase production is likely to be limited by how quickly suppliers can provide parts.

What this translates to for the US is yet to be seen. The 2010 Insight goes on sale in America April 22nd (Earth Day), less than two months from now. I can't quite tell for sure if the article indicates that it is just Japanese Domestic Market Insight production that is increasing, or if production will be increasing worldwide or for the US as well.
