Honda To Drop Accord Hybrid

Posted by Casey on June 5, 2007

Either sales are down, or their system doesn’t work in mid-sized cars. Perhaps both, but either way Honda is getting rid of the Accord Hybrid.

CNN:

“We have found that our hybrid system works better on smaller cars,” said Chris Naughton, a Honda spokesman.

Honda previously announced that it will introduce a new hybrid car in 2009. That car will be smaller in size and less expensive than the Honda Civic Hybrid. The Accord, a midsized car, is larger and more expensive than the Civic.

We’ve had a couple of companies get nailed to the wall because they lied about how many miles their cars got, and this may be a way of correcting that problem for Honda.

This also shows (in spite of what Honda says) that sales are down for mid-size hybrids. If the Accord was popular … they wouldn’t build a new, smaller hybrid.
