2003 Honda Insight Compact Gasoline Electric Hybrid Coupe

Price Quote

The unique Honda hybrid coupe looks daring due to its slick shell featuring a prominent nose, windswept windshield, flat side panels with skirts covering rear wheelwells and a rear section that tapers in flanks to a blunt tail. It's a daring concept too with body weight pared through a lightweight aluminum frame and, to maximize fuel efficiency, both a modest three-cylinder gasoline engine and an electric motor are under the hood and working together to produce high fuel economy figures -- up to 68 mpg with the manual five-speed transmission. In the comfortable cockpit, twin high-back bucket seats stand on either side of a center console, with ample space for body parts, including a generous stretch for legs. Convenience features range from power controls for windows and door locks to remote releases for fuel door and hatch, and an audio system with cassette deck and speakers.
