Honda Insight and CR-Z Hybrids May Be Discontinued in Europe

The Honda Insight and CR-Z hybrids might be getting discontinued in Europe because of poor sales. A company source quoted by AutoExpress said the next-generation Insight and CR-Z would continue to be offered in North America and Japan, but not in Europe.
The Honda CR-Z combines a hybrid powertrain with a manual gearbox (a first for a series production hybrid). In 2012, Honda upped the car’s combined output to 135 hp, but that didn’t result in a sales boom.
The good news is that Honda’s new Jazz hybrid and the upcoming NSX hybrid supercar won’t be affected by the move regarding the CR-Z and the Insight.
