Honda to Start Fit Hybrid Production in Thailand This Summer

Honda to Start Fit Hybrid Production in Thailand This Summer

The Fit hybrid (which is known as the Jazz hybrid outside of North-America) is a hit for Honda, who's been struggling to catch up with Toyota when it comes to gas-electric vehicles. First unveiled at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, it has since sold 86,000 units worldwide, and should sell even more when Honda finally brings it to the North-American market. In the meantime, Honda has decided to start producing the Fit hybrid in Thailand, the first time that a hybrid model will be made in Asia outside of Japan. This could help keep Honda's production costs low and keep the Fit/Jazz one of the most affordable hybrids around, and it should increase their production capacity to allow exports to more countries (though it's not yet clear if Thai Fit/Jazz hybrids will eventually make their way to North-America or if Honda has other plans).
