About the Insight

The Honda Insight was one of the first hybrid electric vehicles to enter mass production, almost alongside the Toyota Prius. Production of the Insight hasn’t been continuous, with there being production hiatuses in between each of the 3 generations that have been released in all.

There have been 3 generations in all, the first running from 1999 to 2006, the second from 2009 to 2014, and the third from 2019 to 2022. The first-generation models were built as 3-door liftbacks with a 1-liter engine and a very distinctive exterior design. In particular, the rear wheels were partially covered by the body, with no wheel hub visible, making it rather unusual at the rear.

Still, no one could deny its efficiency, and it was quickly crowned as the most efficient gasoline-fueled vehicle, achieving 61-mpg on the highway, and a combined rating of 53-mpg. It didn’t lose this title until 2015.

The rear wheel covered design was dropped for the second generation in 2009, and the new Insight was built and marketed instead as a 5-door liftback. It shared design DNA with the Honda Jazz, Honda City, and even the Honda CR-Z. Its powertrain was raised up to 1.3-liter and was combined with a 9.7-kW electric motor.

The latest and final generation launched in 2018 for the 2019 model year brought the Insight design much more in line with other Honda sedans like the Accord and Civic. It competed strongly in its segment, and was priced competitively at $26,855 for the base EX model, and $30,885 for the more upscale Touring model.

Even with its larger build and new powertrain, the 2022 Honda Insight could still manage 55-mpg in the city and 49-mpg on the highway, only coming down to 51-mpg and 45-mpg respectively when upgrading to the Touring model. The Insight has now been replaced with a newer incoming Civic Hybrid.
