Honda to Discontinue Fit EV, Insight Vehicles

Honda announced that after 2014, the Honda Fit EV will no longer be manufactured and the Honda Insight will only be available at dealerships through the end of the year.

While we’re sad to hear that the Honda Fit EV and Insight won’t be very available much longer, we’re excited to hear that it’s because Honda is concentrating on other electric and hybrid technologies!

According to this article, “”Our path forward includes a new generation of electromotive technologies, including expanded application of our two-motor hybrid system,” said Sage Marie, American Honda spokesman, regarding the news.

The two-motor hybrid system is in the Honda Accord Plug-in and Honda Accord Hybrid. Based on consumer and critic reviews of these models, we think is very forward-thinking and wise of Honda to concentrate on expanding on this technology. Almost everyone raves about the gas mileage and performance of the Honda Accord Plug-In and Honda Accord Hybrid, so we think with Honda putting most of it’s attention on that will only make it better!

What do you think? Are you excited for Honda to focus on this technology?
