Tank Smashes Prius! Toyota Prius Battles AMC Gremlin & Suffers Crushing Defeat - Roadkill Ep. 17
On this episode of Roadkill, a tank squashes a Prius to smithereens! It
runs over that junk without even noticing. That's all you really need to
know about this episode of Roadkill, but if you jump straight to the tank
carnage you'll miss a bunch of cool stuff. Like when Freiburger and
Finnegan attempt a shootout between a Toyota Prius hybrid and a '75 AMC
Gremlin, trying to prove that the Gremmie is more of a greenie. It was all
fun and games until the Prius engine let go on the race track in a ball of
flame. Because Roadkill. After that, you've gotta see the guys once again
embrace their own Kryptonite: flat-towing. Yup, as it turns out, dragging a
dead Prius with a lighter, smaller Gremlin ends real badly. But in the end,
the Prius is wafer thin and the Gremlin's still on the road. Still want to
jump right to the tank smash? Don't be that guy.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

Cheapest Hybrid on the Market - 2013 Honda Insight EX Test Drive & Hybrid Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/honda/insight/2013/?id=32972 When most people say
Hybrid Car the Toyota Prius comes to mind. But it was actually the Honda
Insight that was the first hybrid to go on sale here in the U.S. Back in
2000, the Honda Insight was a 2-seater that averaged more than 60 MPG on
the highway. Today's Insight as you can see is a bit larger and can
accommodate 4 passengers. The 2013 Honda Insight comes in 3 different
trims: base, LX, and EX with prices ranging from $18,600 - $23,790.
When you look at the 2013 Honda Insight with its rakish roofline and
two-piece glass hatch, you might think Honda has copied the wedge design
seen in the Toyota Prius. Well Honda was actually first to use this design
with the first generation Insight. This EX test car comes equipped with
15-inch aluminum wheels wrapped in low rolling resistance tires. All
Insight's come with blue tinted LED tail lights and the same tint on the
The 2013 Honda Insight is a gas-electric hybrid which means it has a
regular gas powered 4-cylinder engine, and electric assist motor, and a
nickel-metal hydride battery pack that gets recharged via the regenerative
braking system. What is a bit different about the Insight is that it is
considered a mild-hybrid meaning the electric motor only assists the
gasoline engine. The car does not have the ability to run on electricity
alone which the Prius can do up to a certain point. The power output of the
gas engine and electric motor combined is 98 horsepower and 123 ft-lb of
torque. The Insight Hybrid is rated at 41 MPG in the city and 44 MPG on the
The hatchback design allows for a lot of storage and cargo space at 15.9
cubic feet with the rear seat up and 31.5 cubic feet with the seats folded
down. The seats are comfortable as they sit tall and are firm. The gauge
layout on the Insight is unique with the speedo integrated in a separate
area above the tach.
So who would be a good candidate to purchase an Insight hybrid? Well if you
are willing to give up some ride comfort and power in exchange for fuel
efficiency at a low price then the 2013 Honda Insight may be the hybrid for

Davids 2010 Honda Insight Review
My personal review of the 2010 Honda Insight, as an owner of the vehicle.
I made this with my cheap digital camera, so give me a break on some of the
realIy shakey scenes. It is harder to hold a tiny camera still in a moving
car than one might think. I also make some comparisons with the 2009
Toyota Prius, some people have complained it should have been compared to
the 2010 model. However, the 2010 Prius was not available for several
months after I purchased my Insight and so I had no way to compare.

2012 Toyota Prius V Review - Second Prius model grows in size to expand hybrid's mainstream appeal
Arguably the Prius has already been mainstream for quite a while, but the v
will help solidify the name as a brand. Perhaps now the world is even ready
for a Prius crossover...
Having achieved mainstream recognition and appeal, what's holding the Prius
back from greater success is no longer what's under the hood, or the car's
perception by consumers, but the packaging it's wrapped in.
