Honda Insight Prototype to make world debut at Detroit auto show

Set to be officially launched at the Detroit Auto Show 2018 in mid-January, the new Insight will sit above the current Honda Civic in the automaker's line-up. The 2019 Insight will be a shown in Honda Insight Prototype form at the 2018 North American International Auto Show, ahead of its release in the summer of 2018.

Sitting at the summit of the Honda vehicle range is the Acura NSX - a complex, advanced hybrid two-seater that goes like stink but can't seem to find many takers.

The company said Tuesday morning that it will show a prototype of what will be the 2019 Honda Insight hybrid sedan in Detroit four weeks from now. The Insight morphed into a Prius-like 5-door hatch for its second generation, though the vehicle didn't prove popular and was dropped in 2014.

Honda said the new Insight will sit above the Civic in its lineup of passenger cars, offering "premium style and high fuel efficiency in a sophisticated and spacious five-passenger sedan".

Nine minutes later they made their domination count with a wonderful solo goal from the same man. We talk a lot to the medical department and it is really rare there any issues with him".

Both externally and under the skin, the Insight seemingly owes a lot to the latest-generation Civic, and will be produced alongside it and the CR-V in Greensburg, Indiana.

Before the Toyota Prius became the iPhone of hybrid cars in 2001, Honda's Insight hybrid was technically the first production hybrid vehicle announced for the US market. The new Insight will use the same 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine with two electric motors combo found in the 2018 Accord hybrid.

The fuel economy, really the primary reason for purchase of a hybrid these days, will be "competitive with other compact hybrid models", the company said.
