DETROIT -- The 2010 Honda Insight is the newest hybrid being offered by Honda and it's also a hatchback. Sara Pines, Regional Manager of Public Relations, says they have not announced pricing yet for this vehicle. Production will begin in early April.

The car gets 41 mpg. It offers Eco Assist which is a driver-focused fuel economy enhancement which is standard at a push of a button. It automatically changes the settings so that you are not wasting any energy. There are icons on the dashboard which tells you your optimal range of fuel efficiency.

The Insight has a 2.3 liter SOHC aluminum-alloy i-VTEC engine along with a hybrid system for exceptional fuel economy. It has the capability to operate solely on electric power in certain low- to mid- speed driving conditions. It also provides the cylinder deactivation in the gas engine during deceleration and for engine shutoff when the vehicle is stopped.

The estimated maximum driving range is over 400 miles.

Pines says they will produce 90,000 in the first year of production in the United States and also in Japan and Europe.

The warranty is a 3-year 36,000 mile with a 10-year 100,000 mile on hybrids. It is a 4-cylinder vehicle with a top speed of 120 mph. "The battery doesn't require any maintenance," says Pines. The Insight offers a navigation system which is optional. There are also buttons on the steering wheel for voice activation.
