A recent report has indicated that the Honda Insight and CR-Z could face the axe in Europe which is certainly not a good news for the Honda lovers in that territory.
Citing as news from a company insider, Auto Express says that the sales have declined significantly over the period of time and this has forced the company to think of axing the models before the next generation model arrives in Europe.
Just to give a brief review of both the models, the Insight comes equipped with a 1.3-liter i-VTEC engine and an electric motor that enables the model to generate a combined maximum output of 102 HP (75 kW) and 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) of torque. Talking about efficiency, the model can return 65.7 mpg UK (4.3 L/100km / 54.7 mpg US) with CO2 emissions of 99 g/km.
On the other hand, the CR-Z comes equipped with a 1.5-liter engine and electric motor that generates a combined maximum output of 137 HP (100 kW) and 190 Nm (140 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the hatchback to average up to 56.5 mpg UK (5.0 L/100km / 47.0 mpg US) with CO2 emissions as low as 116 g/km.
