At a time when gasoline prices are at a premium, one of the most important issues to car buyers is the gas mileage. And the new Honda Insight hybrid gets 42 mpgs.
“People want to get more bang for their buck,” said Keith Hofkamp, general sales manager at Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “With the Honda Insight, you definitely get that. It’s a well-built, small car that delivers big gas mileage.”
And we all know that good things come in small packages.
Not only that but it is one of the most affordable hybrids on the market.
“The small size has a purpose. It’s what allows the 2014 Honda Insight to get an impressive 42 mpg combined fuel economy rating. The excellent fuel economy comes from the combination of a 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine and a 10-kilowatt electric motor. The motor tacks on 14 horsepower, putting the overall output for the Insight at 98 horsepower. The motor and engine don’t power the vehicle themselves, rather they work in tandem. On top of adding to the horsepower, the motor supplements the 123 lb-ft of torque and gives the engine the juice it needs to power up after a complete stop. It also keeps the hybrid from having to be plugged in as it acts as a generator for the lithium-ion battery.”
