Markham, Ontario – Rumours that Honda Canada will cease selling the Honda Insight and Civic Hybrid are false, according to the company. Honda was responding to rumours circulating earlier this week that the two hybrid models would be discontinued due to slow sales.
In a statement, the company said, “Honda Canada will listen to the voice of our customers and will bring the products they want. If there is market demand for Insight and Civic Hybrid, we will bring the appropriate supply.”
The company said that Honda dealers currently have more than a six-month supply of the vehicles, and it will monitor demand and order more when required. Honda Canada plans to offer both the Insight and Civic Hybrid as 2011 model-year units and has no plans to discontinue either model.
