26.1.2012 Honda hybrid sales hit 800,000
Honda has announced that they have sold more than 800,000 hybrid vehicles since the first generation Honda Insight hit the road in November 1999.
They were the first manufacturer in the world to launch a hybrid model – with the first Insight delivering 83 miles per gallon giving it the highest fuel economy among all petrol powered vehicles at the time.
Honda now sells seven hybrid models in 50 countries and they all come equipped with Honda's original lightweight and compact IMA (Integrated Motor Assist) hybrid system.
Honda's annual worldwide hybrid sales for 2011 was approximately 200,000 units (up 30% compared to 2010), and Honda’s total hybrid car sales during the last three years exceeded 500,000. In Japan, the ratio of hybrid vehicles exceeded 45% of all new Honda vehicle registrations for the month of December 2011.
