Is the Honda Fit EV really in short supply?

Honda hit the news recently when it was announced that supplies of the popular Honda Fit EV were running short across America. There is some speculation that this “shortage” is artificial and due to various automobile laws in California, while others believe it is a sign of mass-market acceptance for the electric vehicle.

What do you think? Has Honda manipulated the market to create panic buying of the Honda Fit EV or is this a major turning point for the EV industry?

The only reason why it would be in short supply is due to its demand to improve and be more competitive with the other cars on the market.

If you know the real answer please let me know.
