Default Honda considering reducing production of hybrid Accord

A friend of mine mentioned today that he heard that Honda was going to reduce productions of its hybrids. Seems he was partially right, here's the story from the LA Times. http://www.latimes.com/technology/la...ck=1&cset=true

Not surprising. I've only seen one Accord Hybrid and that was by luck at the Can-US border lol. I tested one myself and the avg. fuel economy as said by the trip computer was 13.7L/100km (17.2mpg). Also, the battery didn't move even though I did a few acceleration tests so I'm not sure if Honda is strict about battery charge.

"Honda said this week that it is dropping the Accord Hybrid, enshrining the vehicle as one of the Japanese automaker's rare miscues. The episode carries with it a couple of lessons..."
