Honda Insight Integrated Motor Assist System Electric Motor

The electric-motor component of the integrated motor assist system consists of an ultra-thin (2.3-inch-wide), permanent-magnet electric motor with a maximum output of 10 kw, which provides power assistance to the gasoline engine. It also functions as a starter motor for the idle-stop feature, and as a generator for the IMA system and batteries.
