Honda Insight Model Years

Overview

Research by Year
, Automotive Editor -

Introduced in 2000, the Honda Insight made history as the first hybrid-powered vehicle available to U.S. buyers. In those days, it was a niche vehicle that could accommodate only two passengers and not much else—it had a maximum payload of only 365 pounds.

With a lightweight aluminum body—and futuristic styling that was probably too radical for the mainstream market at the time—the Insight delivered what seemed liked impossible mileage: 60+ mpg on the highway. In many respects, it was a car ahead of its time, and had limited production.

The Insight left in 2006 and returned in 2010 as a much more marketable car. Today's Insight is a proper four-door hatchback that seats fives and offers usable cargo space. Mileage isn't as stellar, but few can complain about 44 mpg, especially in a modern hybrid sedan that starts at just $18,600.

Major changes included: The 2010 Honda Insight is the second generation of the first hybrid mass-produced for the North American market back in 1999. With a starting MSRP of only $19,800, the 2010 Honda Insight is the least expensive hybrid currently available in North America. Power comes from Honda's new and improved IMA, or Integrated Motor Assist system, which helps the Insight to achieve 40 mpg in the city and 43 mpg on the highway (though early reports unearth figures closer to 50 mpg).
