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.

The company will now focus on a new generation of electrified technologies including the expansion of its two-motor system that was introduced in the 2014 Accord plug-in hybrid. Honda is also expected to make an announcement on the future of the FCX Clarity fuel-cell vehicle in the coming weeks.
