Cheapest Hybrid on the Market - 2013 Honda Insight EX Test Drive & Hybrid Car Video Review

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

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.
