The new Honda Insight prototype will be making its debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next January as an early introduction to the all-new 2019 Honda Insight – an upscale five-seater sedan which will sit atop the Civic in Honda’s model line-up.
First introduced in 1999, the Insight was America’s first hybrid vehicle, a technological marvel with optimised aerodynamics and a lightweight aluminium structure. It was also the first Honda vehicle to utilise Honda’s Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) hybrid system.
The all-new Insight will adopt an entirely new approach in terms of styling, features and performance as expected by mainstream buyers – a hybrid vehicle without compromise. Unlike the first two generations of the Insight, the all-new model will be powered by Honda’s two-motor hybrid system that will chart competitive fuel economy ratings.
With the Insight due for launch later in 2018, it will further affirm Honda’s aim to make electric vehicles 2/3 of Honda’s global vehicle sales by 2030.
