Honda Insight Hybrid to Make
World Debut at the Detroit Motor Show
Tokyo - Honda has 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 inspired, athletic 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.
