Default Insight Discontinued?

I took my cousin to see an Insight at the Honda Dealer the other day. We walked up to a guy who watch us get out of my Prius and said: "nice car". I said thanks and that I would like to see one of their Hybrids. He said that he would ne glad to show me. So I told him that I would like to show my cousin the Insight. He said that they are no-longer being made. He said they discontinued for about 3 months now. If this is true, it is sad to see SULEV car stop being manufactured.

same rumor that's been circulating about the Insight for years...

yes, 2004 Insight production has ceased, but Honda hasn't said one way or the other about 2005 production.

Here's a thread for you with a similar story/question:

One of our members at InsightCentral said that his dealership took a deposit from him for a 05 Insight. 2004's productions were capped along with the Civic Si back in March I think. With fuel prices being high people went out and bought most of them up so finding one is rare. There are no new 04's left on lots in my area that I know of. They have not said that there will be no 05 Insight though. There is a 04 silver one on ebay right now with 75 miles on it for sale, still has the transport plastics on the hood. But I would think they will continue the Insight for at least one more year as they put the money in to redesigning the interior for 04 and produced fewer than 1000.

Default MY2005 Insight

In August 2004 I wrote a letter to Honda Motors expressing my disbelief that they would discontinue the Insight given the increased demand for hybrids. My Honda dealer here in Panama City assured me the Insight has been discontinued for 2005. I received a written reply from Honda stating quite clearly that the Insight will be manufactured in MY 2005!

There's you absolutely 100% diffinitive proof from the source itself. There will be a 05 Insight making Honda the first manufacturer to simultaneously produce 3 hybrid models.
