Honda Insight revived with this all new version
The Honda Insight was supposed to be in full retirement after the last model was released globally. Now news has just been released that Honda is reviving the Insight name and an all new Insight is about to be released globally.
The Insight prototype will make its world debut at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit as the precursor to the all-new 2019 Honda Insight an upscale, stylish five-passenger sedan positioned above the Civic in Honda’s passenger car lineup. The all-new Insight utilizes the latest generation of Honda’s innovative two-motor hybrid system and will launch in summer 2018 as the newest electrified vehicle in the Honda lineup
Introduced in 1999, the first-generation Insight was America’s first hybrid vehicle and a technological tour de force with optimized aerodynamics and a lightweight aluminum structure. As a result, the 2-door Insight launched as the most fuel-efficient EPA certified gasoline-fueled vehicle with a highway rating of 70 miles per gallon. It was the first Honda vehicle to utilize Honda’s Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) hybrid system.
The second-generation Honda Insight made its debut in 2009 as the most affordable hybrid on the market. With its 5-door, 5-passenger design, the second-gen Insight offered increased space and utility while continuing to employ the IMA hybrid system.
The all-new 2019 Insight takes an entirely new approach with the styling, packaging, premium features and performance desired by mainstream car buyers – a hybrid vehicle without any inherent compromise. Unlike the first two generations of Insight, the all-new model will be powered by Honda’s two-motor hybrid system offering fuel economy that is competitive with other compact hybrid models.
