Sad to see no 4th gen Fit here in the US. Next gen Civic confirmed for next Spring.

Will the Insight be next?
Possibly if based on annual US sales numbers alone. Compared to the discontinued models, the Honda Insight sold 23,686 units in 2019 - which slots right between what was deemed "too low sales to sustain" for the Fit and Civic Coupe.

2019 sales data for the discontinued models:
  • Honda Fit = 35,414 units
  • Civic Coupe = 19,539 units (estimated at 6% of total sales, per Automotive News)
  • Accord Manual = 5,351 units (estimated at 2% of total sales, per CNET)
BUT if Honda is making decisions based on strategy, it seems more likely that the Insight sticks around as one of their few hybrid offerings (Insight, Accord, Clarity, CR-V)... OR gets integrated into the Civic platform.

I think the Insight will continue on at least for this generation. Honda recently ended production of the Civic in Japan but kept the Insight so I take that as a good sign that a Civic Hybrid isn't coming anytime soon. The Clarity is somehow still alive in the US and Japan so Honda must've different goals for electrified vehicles that aren't dependent on sales.
