Honda Sells 800,000 Hybrid Vehicles in 12 Years

Honda is the real deal when it comes to helping people decrease their carbon footprint. Just 12 years after selling their first hybrid vehicle, the Honda Insight, the Japanese automaker sold their 800,000th hybrid vehicle - that averages over 66,000 hybrid vehicles a year!

Here at Capital Honda we're not just telling you this to toot Honda's own horn, but because we believe Honda has vested in doing right when it comes to the environment. We also want to make sure to spread the word in the Okemos area that Honda does in fact sell hybrid vehicles, and have been doing so for over a decade.

We aren't talking just one hybrid model either. Honda now sells a total of seven different hybrid models in 50 countries worldwide, including the United States. Honda is also quickly releasing more hybrid models including the Honda Accord Hybrid and ILX from Honda's luxury arm Acura, and the number grows to nine. Among the Honda hybrids currently available in the U.S. are the Honda Civic Hybrid, Honda CR-Z Sport Hybrid and Honda Insight.
