Honda's sales are down in September versus August, for which Honda cites "fewer sales days." 30-days versus 31 days doesn't seem like a big difference, but maybe some of the (pre)Labor day sales were included in August rather than September.

The Insight is holding steady at ~40% (38%) of Honda's total 'electrified' sales.

Clarity sales are dropping steadily monthly (-40% vs August), related to Honda's decision to carry inventory in California only. - https://www.torquenews.com/1083/falling-first-place-honda-clarity-sales-drop-also-ran-status

Though not directly reported, I'd estimate from their total sales that the Accord Hybrid sold <2k units (1923), which is down 25% from August.

It's been awhile since the Insight sold less than 2,000 in a month. January and February were the only times this year it has sold lower than 2,000. September overall looks like it was a bad month for Honda(people waiting for 2020 model year changes?).

You make an interesting point. Sales for the quarter (JAS19) are up 3% versus last year (JAS18), but sales for Aug/Sep were flat versus last year.
