Honda Official Says Hybrid Accord Sales Down More Than Half.

The Los Angeles Times recently reported that an official with Honda Motor Company revealed late last week that the company is considering a cut in the future production of its hybrid electric Accord sedan due to worse-than-expected sales.

According to the newspaper, while the automaker had high hopes for the V6-equipped hybrid Accord, which boasts increased horsepower and a 25-percent improvement in fuel economy compared to the conventional Accord, sales for the vehicle so far this year are down more than 50 percent from figures for the comparable period of 2005.

The paper noted that the hybrid Accord currently sells for roughly $3,700 more than the standard model.
