Remember the report from Quebec that suggested Honda Canada would be discontinuing the Insight and Civic hybrid for the 2011 model year due to poor sales? According to company spokesman Richard Jacobs, the two hybrids have not in fact been discontinued. Instead, Jacobs tells us that Canadian dealers currently have a six month supply of the Insight and Civic so it hasn't ordered any new cars from the factories in Japan.

"Honda Canada will listen to the voice of our customers and will bring the products they want," says Jacobs. Both hybrids will remain available and Honda will be monitoring inventories and customer demand to determine when to order more units. Perhaps the launch of the CR-Z will get customers to reconsider its siblings as well.

      Why do you post that same ignorant comment in every article about a Honda on several different websites?

      Honda is a interesting case. While they sell less cars each years , is profits are
      skyrocket. Its seem like press and customers are more concern that Honda to
      sell more cars.

      the article you originally posted stated that. I'm not sure who gets an F on reading comprehension.

      They're not canceling the sales of those cars for MY11, just waiting until their current supply runs out. Which could be the 2012 model year, given the abysmal sales #s.

      "Honda Canada will listen to the voice of our customers and will bring the products they want,"

      OK So if this sentence is true bring us a CRZ SI without the hybrid stuff and with a K20 of 200 hp.
