A few years back after getting the hybrid ball rolling with the original Insight and then Civic, Honda added a hybrid version of the Accord. Like the Insight, it was not a strong seller and, after a few years, it was discontinued and Honda decided to switch its focus for larger vehicles to clean diesel. The plan was to keep hybrids in smaller cars and while using oil burners in larger cars, SUVs and vans. Honda had planned to start its U.S. diesel push with a 2.2-liter four in the TSX this year. However, after diesel prices spiked last year and the overall market collapsed in the fall, that program was canceled.
I had an 02 Prius and also Prius , but Toyata always had trouble diagnosing problems. I now drive a 2010 Jetta Diesel more comfort, more power, more fun to drive and get 44 to 47 highway/city combined going from Delaware shore to Rockville, Md to work. I do not plan to buy another Hybrid any time soon.
