Honda posted US sales results for March 2021. 1st quarter sales were +16% versus 2020 (low baseline to beat!), and March 2021 sales were +80% versus last year.

The Insight 'beat' this average, selling 1682 units and +96% versus March 2020. It's been 7 months (Aug 2020) since the Insight sold more than 1600 units in a month... and this probably reflects dealers clearing out 2021 models to prep for the (hopefully soon?) 2022 Insight model year.

Honda trucks/SUVs (Ridgeline, HR-V, Passport) had strong sales, and Electrified Vehicles had an "all-time monthly record" of 10,000 deliveries in March. And even on the the Acura side, the MDX had its best-ever sales month and best total March sales since 2005.

I think I see you in there. 😀

I'm trying to wait out 2022 Insight information, but Honda isn't making it easy. I'll be on one of these charts soon enough.

I think Honda will wait until after the 2022 Civic debuts in "late-Spring 2021" so as not to distract/compete with the Gen11 Civic launch which also marks the 50th anniversary of the Civic.

My guess is late-Summer 2021 for the 2022 Insight release date, even though that would be more than a year (~18 months) from when the 2021 Insight started selling in March 2020.

I'm saddened that you're probably right.

I think the prototype reveal happened in November 2020, so I was hoping they'd debut the 2022 civic in Q1. Then the actual release would happen early Q2, and the Insight information would follow late-April/early May. With the battery happenings, I'm probably not going to buy an insight that's been on the lot for 18 months. With the potential shenanigans Ryannn_661 has to deal with, I don't trust dealers to worry much about the low volume insight to start it at least once every 3 months.
