Looking at the sales number of both the Honda CR-V and the Toyota RAV4 right now, it does not look like the Honda CR-V is losing out, in fact, the Honda CR-V is leading but will that last with the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid going so strong.
The demand for EV and Hybrid model has certainly risen and to make sure they meet the demand of their customers, Toyota release a hybrid version of their Toyota RAV4 last year.
We were all expecting Honda to follow suit but that did not happen. It is believed that Honda will be waiting for their 2018 model before they start offering a hybrid option. The 2018 model will also be coming in with a new exterior design.
With Toyota already reporting that the Hybrid has helped increase the sales by 10%, do you think Honda will regret not offering a hybrid model when they are still ahead?
