According to a recent report, the Honda Insight and CR-Z could be dropped in Europe.

Citing a company insider, Auto Express says sales have declined significantly enough that Honda is considering axing the models before the next-generation arrives.

As we have previously reported, the Insight has a 1.3-liter i-VTEC engine and an electric motor that enables the model to produce a combined maximum output of 102 HP (75 kW) and 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the model to return 65.7 mpg UK (4.3 L/100km / 54.7 mpg US) with CO2 emissions of 99 g/km.

The CR-Z, on the other hand, has a 1.5-liter engine and electric motor for a combined maximum output of 137 HP (100 kW) and 190 Nm (140 lb-ft) of torque. This allows the hatchback to average up to 56.5 mpg UK (5.0 L/100km / 47.0 mpg US) with CO2 emissions as low as 116 g/km.
