MY2015 will mark the end of production of the Honda Crosstour. The weirdly designed crossover is planned to be phased out because of its slow sales, and so that the company can rather focus on a more potential offering – the HR-V, says a fresh report from Automotive News.
Honda managed to sell 11,802 units of the Crosstour in 2014 and 2,046 in 2015 till March. Since 2010, the annual sales fallen short of expectations since its launch in MY2010, as per the report. The CUV’s annual sales have consistently dropped from 2010 except in 2012.
The 2016 HR-V is set to hit the U.S. dealerships this spring. According to the report, the company is also relocating production of the Accord Hybrid from the Marysville, Ohio plant to its Sayama plant in Japan. The relocation of production from Ohio to Japan might stir up the prices of the car. The Plug-in Hybrid model which starts at US$10,475 more than the base price of the conventional Hybrid model, is already manufactured at the Sayama plant in Japan.
