The Honda Insight is the first gasoline-electric hybrid vehicle to be sold in the United States. The heart of the hybrid system is Honda's innovative Integrated Motor Assist (IMA™), which couples an all-new and compact 1.0-liter, 3-cylinder engine and an ultra-thin electric motor for outstanding efficiency. The IMA system combined with a rigid aluminum body structure and world-class aerodynamic design gives the Insight the ability to travel as far as 70 miles on a gallon of gasoline (EPA highway) and still run so cleanly that it meets California's stringent Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV) standard, making it the world's cleanest, most fuel-efficient gasoline-powered automobile.
The Insight drives just like any other automobile. Its range is limited only by its 10.6-gallon gas tank. No external power supply is needed for recharging. It is a full-featured automobile, backed by the Honda reputation for durability, quality and reliability.
