As Jeremy wrote a few days ago, Honda is thinking about a new dedicated hybrid model that would sell for under $25,000. Automotive News (subs req'd) yesterday brings us more. This new model should be on the lots in mid-2009, with an ambitious 200,000 produced each year. This is separate from the introduction of Honda's hybrid sports coupe, which should come a few months earlier and which will look somewhat like the Remix concept that was unveiled in LA last fall and is pictured above. The new mid-price hybrid will be available in markets around the world, Ken Keir, managing director of Honda UK and senior vice president of Honda Motor Europe, told Automotive News. I think it's a safe bet that this vehicle will sell better than the Insight.
