The cutting-edge Honda Insight debuted in the United States in December of 1999, and was Honda's first car to feature the Motor Assist IMA system, which combines a traditional combustion engine and an electric motor to greatly enhance vehicle mileage per gallon of gas. The original Honda hybrid featured a 67-horsepower 1.0-liter engine that utilized vehicle deceleration and braking to recharge the car's batteries. The second generation of hybrid Insight cars hummed along with the release of an all-new design and hatchback style in 2008. Honda's priority with the second generation hybrid was to make the car affordable to a wider range of potential buyers. Honda achieved its goal by producing a gas-electric hybrid that highlighted a starting MSRP of less than 20,000. To put the icing on the cake, the 2010 Insight was named a "Top 10 Green Car" by Kelley Blue Book. Vandergriff Honda has a large variety of new and used Honda Insight cars for sale with a variety of deals and financing options available.
