Honda Fit EV, Insight Axed

Two of Honda’s electrified vehicles are being discontinued.

According to a recent report from Edmunds, the Honda Fit EV and Insight hybrid are both getting the axe with the Insight being available nationwide until year’s end. The Japanese automaker will continue producing the Fit EV until fall and will support customers through their lease periods. Honda originally committed to only producing 1,100 Fit EVs for the U.S.
