Honda has plans for two new Hybrid models. - Monday, June 2nd, 2008 - Honda announced that it will introduce a new small hybrid in early 2009, as well as another unique small hybrid vehicle based on the sporty CR-Z compact concept sports car and a hybrid version of the Honda Fit subcompact.

The first new dedicated hybrid vehicle, due in 2009, will be offered as a 5-door hatchback with seating for five passengers and will employ an exterior design concept that evokes the FCX Clarity fuel cell vehicle. With the new hybrid, Honda is aiming to produce the most affordable hybrid on the market. Fuel economy for the new car is expected to exceed 40 miles per gallon. Hopefully much more than 40 mpg. 65+ mpg would be a great target and would definitely help surpass the sales of the Prius.

Honda To Challenge Prius With a Dedicated Hybrid Model - Thursday, July 12th, 2007 - BOSTON: Honda learned from Toyota’s success with the Prius that hybrid customers want their decision to drive a hybrid to be visible, so the company is planning a dedicated hybrid model that will feature its own unique styling rather than simply being a hybrid-powered version of an existing model, according to Dan Bonawitz, vice president of corporate planning and logistics for American Honda Motor Co. Inc.

The new hybrid-specific model will be the previously announced car that will slot in below the Civic Hybrid in price, he said. Honda has said that the car will debut in 2009.

Before rolling out its Civic and Accord hybrids, which have never enjoyed the success of Toyota’s distinctive Prius, the company surveyed consumers about their opinion on the need for a separate hybrid model, Bonawitz explained. “They broke 50-50,” he said. “But in the marketplace, the Prius went one way and we went the other.”
