TORRANCE, California Shipments of the redesigned 2015 Honda Fit have been "slower than anticipated" and the automaker now says the highly anticipated car will arrive at dealerships during the second week of June.

Honda had promised in an April 9 statement that the 2015 Fit would go on sale at Honda dealerships nationwide in the second half of April.

The Fit is being built at Honda's new factory in Celaya, Mexico.

"We know our customers are excited about the launch of this all-new 2015 Honda Fit and we appreciate their patience as the on-sale date approaches," Chris Martin, a Honda spokesman, told Edmunds on Tuesday.

Martin added: "As this is an all-new plant, we are taking a measured approach to the production ramp-up and shipments from the plant have been slower than anticipated. As we build up substantial inventory to sustain the nationwide sales launch, deliveries of the 2015 to Honda dealerships will begin in the second week of June.

The Celaya plant is on track to build out 200,000 Fits and HR-V subcompact crossovers a year for the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The plant features some of the automaker's latest and most advanced manufacturing technologies.

Competitors to the Fit include the 2015 Ford Fiesta, 2014 Chevrolet Sonic, Hyundai Accent and Toyota Yaris.

Edmunds says: Car shoppers who are wondering why they haven't seen the 2015 Honda Fit in showrooms get a better idea of when to check in with their dealer.
