Sadly, the new Honda Insight isn't selling as well as Honda had hoped. The Prius still reigns supreme. And, since it is the more advanced (though more expensive) option, we can't really argue with that. But Honda is taking the news in stride. Instead of backing off of their commitment to hybrids, it looks like they're planning two more, and they're hoping to make them even cheaper.
While the Prius is the technology leader, it is important that we bring the costs of hybrids down so that more people can get better gas mileage, and that is Honda's goal. Honda's president says they're working on two new hybrids, and that they will both be even cheaper than the Insight. One of these will probably be a hybrid version of the Fit, which could easily come in at $17,000, and the other might be the CR-Z (pictured) which is slated for launch in 2011.
