Honda Insight Hybrid Best-Selling Car In Japan

For the first time ever, a hybrid vehicle is the best-selling car in Japan. But the champ is not the new Prius, but rather the newcomer 2010 Honda Insight. Green is big in Japan.

Excluding Kei cars, the Honda Insight and Honda Jazz (Fit) took the top two spots with 10,841 units and 9,443 units, respectively. The Insight is just starting to show up on dealer lots here in the U.S., so we'll soon see if the cheap and modern-looking ecorider does as well on this side of the Pacific. [AP]
