An all-new 2010 Honda Insight is expected to arrive in Honda showrooms by April. Honda hopes its 2010 Insight will re-establish the company as the leader in dedicated hybrid cars, and at a bargain price.
The original Honda Insight, built from 1999 through 2006, was the first gasoline-electric hybrid car available in the United States. It was almost experimental in look and character, a two-seater with limited mainstream appeal at a fairly hefty price.
The all-new 2010 Insight is a compact five-passenger, five-door sedan.
It's much closer to the mainstream than the original, and it's expected to sell for about $4,000 less than the class-leading Toyota Prius or Honda's own Civic Hybrid.
