honda insight the next generation of cars

Grab some pavement with the Insight: the hybrid that paved the way.

The Honda Insight was the very first petrol-electric hybrid sold in the United States, and it remains a benchmark the others strive to meet. In fact, the EPA named this remarkable car the most fuel-efficient vehicle in the two-seater class, and the Insight holds its title as the overall fuel efficiency leader in America. Those prestigious accolades translate into great gas mileage: just about 1072 kilometers on one tank of gas. And just to make things even easier on its loyal drivers, the Insight doesn't ever need to be plugged in. Fun to drive, with a sporty and stylish exterior and a comfortably well-equipped interior

Sleek, elegant lines fold into an innovative design incorporating both aluminum and molded plastic-resin panels developed just for the Insight. This impressive silhouette shows the world you have places to go, while dropping little hints that you're also very much enjoying the journey.

Power windows, mirrors and door locks respond to your commands, and an innovative Electronic Instrument Display (IMA Charge and Assist Module) gives you a bird's-eye view of every relevant detail. Meanwhile, convenient beverage holders keep you refreshed for your journey and the Immobilizer Theft-Deterrent System keeps watch so that you (and only you) are in the driver's seat.

By maintaining a constant speed, you will make the most efficient use of your fuel. *Avoid abrupt stops - When you stop your car, the electric motor in the hybrid acts like a generator and takes some of the energy out of the car while slowing it down. If you give the electric motor more time to slow the vehicle, it can recover more of the energy. If you stop quickly, the brakes on the car will do most of the work of slowing the car down, and that energy will be wasted.
