Honda has a Lithium Battery shortage!    (Score: 1, Normal) 11-25-2013 11:08

Who would think that just 6 months ago!

You can't buy the new 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid now because there isn't any on the Dealers lot(most just got one demo and a few got two..1500 only for the NA Market until Hopefully FEB/MARCH 2014) and the Dealer can't order them now!

The success(way way over planned!!!!) of the 2014 Honda Fit and Accord Hybrids in Japan is using up all the supplies!!!!

So to match the demand in Japan,Honda stopped production in the NA Market!

It looks like Honda is in the same boat as Tesla......need more Lithium batteries like Yesterday!

But to find a new manufacture or find a way to make more takes time(a year or more!)

A good problem to have? But if it takes too long, might turn into a problem problem as people forget the model exists.

Since the more expensive Hybrid's will have to be ordered and probably will not be discounted, I think the regular economical Accord's will do just fine for many people in the U.S., especially as unleaded continues to drop. ($2.67 in KC today)

There's something wrong with all this. To keep Japanese customers happy we will not be able to supply the North American market for 6 months. Yes I know you have done such a great job with the North American media, which has given simply awesome coverage of the car. You'll just have to do it again in six months time when we 'll give you some for people to actually buy. Honda America and Honda Canada must be fuming.

Honda is just still lost to what a Customer WANTS!

IF YOU MAKE A GREAT PRODUCT at a good value, THEY WILL SELL LIKE HOT CAKES!!!!!!!!(2014 Honda Fit and Accord Hybrids)

You make a bad product or a product that doesn't even come close to Toyota's Hybrids(All of Honda's past Hybrids)they will NOT SELL!!!!!! but in their minds,Honda thought they were great products!

They didn't understand the market so they didn't buildup a good supply before launch(like they do with most key model releases) but did a rolling release(few Demos but not start max production until release)
