Honda's new Insight hybrid will make its world debut in January 2009 at the Detroit Motor Show.
This first image of the US version of Honda’s latest production hybrid shows how the Insight Concept, first shown at the Paris show in October, will be transferred into an aerodynamically inspired, athletic looking road car.
The new five-passenger, five-door Insight is powered by a lighter, more compact version of Honda’s IMA hybrid system and will go on sale in the spring.
The new Insight will utilise a new interactive, driver-focused fuel economy enhancement technology named the Ecological Drive Assist System. The new feedback system gives the driver real time information about his/her driving performance to help reduce fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions.
