The Honda Insight has become the top selling car among new vehicle registrations in Japan for the month of April, if you exclude mini-vehicles - under 660cc.  They sold 10,481 units.  That's more than they sold in February and March put together, and it's the first time a hybrid model has become the best selling vehicle in Japan for any monthly sales period.

Honda also points out the fit was the industry's best selling car among new vehicle registrations in Japan for calendar year 2008 and the fiscal year ended March 31, 2009. The Honda Fit was also the industry’s best-selling car for the month of March 2009, for the fourth consecutive month since December 2008, until it was displaced by Insight to become the industry’s second best-selling car in April 2009,with sales of 9,443 units. It is the first time Honda has occupied the industry’s top two best-selling car positions.

And I thought that the Prius would beat the Insight in sales.

It will globally. Japan is a different type of market. Note how these numbers exclude smaller engines. In the US, the Prius will outsell the Insight.
