2019 Honda Insight EX (White Orchid Pearl)
I'm not able to find Japanese Insight sales numbers but it sounds like it could be doing alright in Japan. :smile:Domestic sales of new electrified vehicles, such as hybrids and electric models, accounted for more than 40 percent of overall sales of new cars for the first time in the first half of 2019, due mainly to their high fuel efficiency, according to the Japan Automobile Dealers Association.
For electrified vehicles, more than 90 percent of the sales were hybrid cars. Meanwhile, sales of electric cars, which are expected to spread rapidly the world over, were less than 2 percent. Sales of hybrid vehicles powered by gasoline engines and electric motors increased 7.3 percent to 600,000 units.
In December, Toyota Motor Corp. partially remodeled its Prius hybrid, and Honda Motor Co. fully remodeled its Insight hybrid, with both automakers focusing on the development of such electrified vehicles.
