Honda spokesman told Automotive News Europe the Insight and CR-Z hybrids won't be offered in Europe anymore.
It was October last year when we heard a rumor about Honda's decision to stop selling the Insight and CR-Z models on the old continent and now that rumor is a reality. Due to a weak demand, Honda has decided to withdraw these hybrids from Europe but you can still have one since the company has a few of them left in stock.
Honda sold 62 percent less units of the Insight last year in Europe, managing to deliver just 1,242 cars. Sales of the CR-Z dropped by 66 percent to only 695 units, based on the figures released by market researcher JATO Dynamics.
Europeans who would really like to have an alternative-powered Honda can grab the previous-gen Jazz but this model has also gone down in popularity, with sales decreasing from 7,500 units in 2012 to 4,500 cars in 2013. A plug-in hybrid variant of the new Jazz fit is slated for a 2015 release but Honda hasn't decided whether the model will hit European dealerships.
