Vice President John Mendel of Honda believes Honda will not meet it's sales goal of 90,000 for the Honda Insight.
First-year Sales of Honda’s gasoline-electric Insight, which debuted at U.S. dealerships in late March, may be between 50,000 and 60,000 units, John Mendel, the company’s U.S. executive vice president, said in a June 11 interview at Honda’s U.S. headquarters in Torrance. “I don’t think we’ll get to 90,000,” he said.
If gas prices go up or the recession ends, I would bet the sales goal would be revised again. Just don't expect them to up the numbers being produced.
