Honda Insight to be revealed at Detroit motor show

Honda Insight to be revealed at Detroit motor show

A new hybrid auto from one of the pioneers of hybrid-electric vehicles is notable, and that's what Honda has delivered.

Interestingly, the third-generation Insight appears to be a hybrid version of the latest Civic, launched for the 2016 model year. Long live the 2019 Honda Insight!

Ah, the Insight. The model best remembered as the teardrop-shaped two-seater that gave North America its first taste of hybrid motoring in December 1999 was soon eclipsed in sales by the Toyota Prius.

Both externally and under the skin, the Insight seemingly owes a lot to the latest-generation Civic, and will be produced alongside it and the CR-V in Greensburg, Indiana. The second-generation, five-door Insight debuted in 2009 with more interior space and functionality.

The company says it's bringing back the Insight name for the compact vehicle that will offer mileage competitive with other hybrids.

It will be a slightly smaller hybrid four-door sedan than the Accord Hybrid, new for 2018, for which fuel-economy ratings haven't yet been released.

The new Insight will utilize the company's two-motor hybrid system and will join Honda's existing electrified vehicle lineup.

Honda's original Insight in 1999 was rated the most fuel-efficient petrol auto certified by the EPA at the time. In the USA, the new Insight will be "positioned above the Civic". Most of the sales will be driven by gas-powered trucks and SUVs.
