Honda Insight is back

http://automobiles.honda.com/insight-hybrid

Yes, it looks like a Prius, but instead of the lightweight sportish vehicle the first rev of the Insight was, this is more of a mainstream car.

Can't hurt. I didn't see the MPG, but I'm pretty sure Honda will have something that will rival the CRX Si in MPG, that isn't a motorcycle.

Now, if Honda can do a hybrid pickup truck, I'd be happy.

CR-X is reincarnated as the CR-Z?

Well the thing that the original insight lacked was everything from rear passenger seats to trunk space. I'm glad they're making something to compete with it's own civic hybrid.

I think its mainly marketing. The Civic hybrid name doesn't go as well among people who want to be eco-cool as a model that has always been a hybrid, such as the Prius. Even though both cars get an impressive MPG number.
