Honda Insight
The Insight was one of the first gasoline electric hybrid production vehicles sold in the United States. It was made from 1999 until 2006, and is classified as a subcompact car, as it only seats two people. It could achieve 70 miles per gallon, a number unmatched by production cars being made today.

For the ultimate gas sipper, the 5 speed manual transmission version of the Insight cannot be matched. It could go 70 miles on a gallon of gas, and received a ULEV emissions rating from the state of California. For people who were more concerned with emissions than saving on gas, the CVT tranmission model made fewer emissions than just about any other car ever manufactured. The continuous variable transmission limited NOx emissions and earned that version of the car a SULEV rating.

Each of these cars came with two engines which worked during different types of driving. The gasoline engine was a 1.0L 3 cylinder, with the brushless electric engine running at 144 volts. Unlike many other hybrids, the Insight could not run on just the electric engine.

Sales of the Insight were never great in the United States. Honda never expected it to be a sales hit, but rather a way to get their foot in the hybrid market and a test vehicle for future hybrid cars. They now sell a hybrid version of some of their more popular cars, such as the Civic.

If you own a Insight, or you are planning on buying one, you should know that Honda is paying for the cost of battery replacement for up to 150,000 miles of use.

There are not many of these out there on the used car market. With gas prices the way they are, there certainly is a demand for a used car that can get 70 miles on a gallon of gas. You should try checking on eBay, just because you'll save a lot of time. It is the largest used car marketplace in the world, and it sure beats looking through dozens of used car classifieds, only to find the car of your dreams is being sold by an owner who thinks their car is special and worth a few grand more than blue book. Yeah, just go with eBay.
