Bound Honda Insight Prototype Previews All-New 2019 Model

Honda Insight Prototype Front Three Quarters

Honda has been rather hit of miss in recent years with its dedicated hybrid vehicles.

Honda's Greensburg plant will add a third model to its production line next year when it begins manufacturing the automaker's new Insight hybrid. The newest Insight will be a 5-passenger sedan positioned between the Civic and Accord.

As with earlier Prototype models, including the CR-V Hybrid and Civic Si coupe, the design of the production Insight should differ only slightly from the vehicle seen here, with any changes likely confined to the tail-lamp graphics, bumpers and alloy wheels.

The funky-looking two-door Insight came out in 1999 and got 70 miles per gallon on the highway.

The 2019 Insight, however, is a compact-to-mid-size four-door sedan-a far more popular segment for US vehicle buyers.

The company says it's bringing back the Insight name for the compact auto that will offer mileage competitive with other hybrids.

For starters, the 2019 Insight will use Honda's two-motor hybrid system (instead of the old IMA hybrid system) for improved performance.

The original Insight of the early 2000s was a 3-door hatch.

The 2018 Insight will also be built in the USA, unlike the two previous generations, which were imported from Japan.

The Honda Insight is to return in 2018 with a hybrid powertrain, as Honda revives its Toyota Prius rival for the U.S. market. Most of the sales will be driven by gas-powered trucks and SUVs. Pricing, final specifications and ratings, and trim details and features are only likely to appear a few weeks before it becomes available.
