    “Hybrid-electric vehicles are effective in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and are a critical pathway toward Honda’s vision for 100% zero-emission vehicle sales in North America by 2040. Making the volume leader of our core models hybrid-electric will dramatically boost electrified sales in the Honda lineup, a strategy that will be augmented by the arrival of a Civic Hybrid in the future,” said American Honda Motor Co., Inc. Vice President of Sales Mamadou Diallo.

    To make room for these moves, Honda will cease production of the Insight compact hybrid this June at its Indiana Auto Plant. Subsequently, American Honda will introduce all-new models of the CR-V Hybrid this year, followed by the Accord Hybrid. Per Honda, both nameplates will eventually make up 50 percent of the sales mix of each model. Hybrids, Honda added, will represent the top and best performing models in the lineup.
