2019 Honda Insight Hybrid

Honda has a reputation for developing some of the most efficient vehicles of the past 40 years, so of course they were one of the first automakers to develop a hybrid hatchback and bring it to the drivers of Ashland in 1999.

  • The Insight was the first hybrid to be sold on U.S. soil, debuting a full seven months before the Toyota Prius. While Honda’s hybrid hatchback gained its fair share of fans, it was only a matter of time before hybrid powertrains found their way onto Honda’s already efficient lineup of vehicles.
  • The Insight was joined by a Civic Hybrid in 2002 for the 2003 model year, with the Accord Hybrid first hitting the streets in 2004 and running from 2005-2007.
  • Honda returned to the drawing board shortly after 2007 and began rethinking their hybrids for the changing auto market, and in 2009 the second-generation Insight hit the streets to critical acclaim. While the Civic and Accord Hybrid models would again return, they would be joined by a truly unique vehicle: the Honda CR-Z hybrid sports car.
  • With these four vehicles and the addition of the Accord Plug-in Hybrid for the 2014 model year, Honda established themselves as an automaker with one of the most diverse selections of hybrid vehicles available, giving you plenty of options when it comes to being a fuel-conscious driver.

Most drivers have accepted the reality that fuel prices are likely never going to drop back down to what they were even a few years ago, and that means many people are shopping around for hybrids. The Honda hybrid car lineup is one of the most interesting and diverse in the Tri-State area, giving drivers like you access to fuel-efficient powertrains in a wide variety of vehicles—even a sports car.
