Honda Insight debutes at Detroit Motor Show

3 December 2008 - Honda has today given the first glimpse of the American specification, production version of the all-new 2010 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 Paris in October 2008, will be transferred into an aerodynamically 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 Insight is expected to have annual global sales of 200,000 units per year and 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 their driving performance, to help them reduce their fuel consumption and Carbon Dioxide Emissions.
