The vehicle that started the hybrid revolution is coming back in a big way. The Honda Insight Prototype debuts at the Detroit Auto Show in mid-January, featuring the latest in two-motor hybrid technology. It will be coming to Chapman Honda next summer as a 2019 model, the latest electrified vehicle in the Honda inventory. “With its sophisticated styling, dynamic stance, ample interior space and best-in-class performance, the all-new Insight embodies Honda’s approach to creating electrified vehicles without the typical tradeoffs,” according to Honda VP Henio Arcangeli, Jr. “You won’t have to be an electrification advocate to appreciate the new Insight – it’s a great car in its own right, independent of what’s happening under the hood.”

Insight Now in Third Generation

The very first incarnation of the Honda Insight was introduced in 1999, delivering up to 70 mpg on the highway to environmentally-conscious consumers. The Insight was redesigned in 2009, with a larger interior space and five doors for easy entrance and exit. The next version, coming this summer, is an entirely new take on a great idea. It delivers hybrid efficiency without the accompanying sacrifices. Powered by Honda’s hybrid system that utilizes two motors for maximum efficiency and power, it promises a fun-to-drive experience with room for five adults.

New Insight Fifth Electrified Vehicle

“At the 2017 North American International Auto Show, we announced our Honda Electrification Initiative with the intention to make two-thirds of Honda’s global vehicle sales electrified vehicles by 2030,” Arcangeli said. “With the Insight launching later in 2018 as the fifth electrified vehicle brought to market over the past year, we’re demonstrating our commitment to that goal.” Along with the new Insight, the redesigned 2018 Accord Hybrid will be coming to Chapman Honda in 2018. With a completely new design and estimated range of more than 600 miles, the new Accord Hybrid promises to be a refined, efficient and versatile vehicle that deliver the room and sophistication modern drivers crave.

Regenerative Braking Keeps Energy Up

Honda has added four levels of regenerative braking to its new Accord Hybrid, allowing the driver to use the engine torque to not only slow the vehicle down but adds power back into the battery. Unlike some other hybrids, the use of a paddle shifter lets you temper the use of the regenerative braking depending on the speed and level of decline. Honda has mastered this technology to create a smooth, more pleasurable experience than other hybrids you might have driven. It provides a near-perfect braking experience that wastes as little energy as possible.

Honda Sensing Comes Standard

The intelligent Honda Accord Hybrid comes with a standard suite of Honda Sensing technologies designed to get you and your passengers to your intended destination all in one piece. The collision mitigation braking system warns you of a possible crash and then takes action to slow you down if you fail to act. Adaptive cruise control keeps a safe distance between you and the vehicle you’re following, slowing you down and even stopping to avoid a collision. Road departure mitigation, lane keeping assist and traffic sign recognition are other camera and sensor-driven features designed to provide you with safe travels.
