Honda Plans to Catch the Hybrid Wave


Hon­da admits it missed the ini­tial hybrid wave, but is plan­ning on rid­ing the next one all the way to the beach. Honda’s hybrid sales have been far out­paced by rival Japan­ese automak­er, Toy­ota. Hon­da even dis­con­tin­ued sales of the Accord hybrid last year. In the com­ing years, Hon­da will play catchup intro­duc­ing a hybrid-only Prius fight­er next year with oth­er hybrid mod­els to fol­low. By ear­ly next decade the automak­er plans to be sell­ing 500,000 hybrids a year.
