ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

It seems counter intuitive, but using less often costs more. If hybrids and electric vehicles are going to save the planet, they ought to at least be affordable. Thankfully there’s a new, lower priced version of the Honda Insight hybrid sedan. Priced at $18,950 including destination charge, the new base Insight is about $1,000 cheaper than the least expensive Insight from last year and roughly $4,000 less than the base 2010 Toyota Prius.

The new model is simply named “Insight” but both LX and EX versions remain. The new lower priced Insight includes a more basic two-speaker audio system and different cloth covering the seats. However, the base model includes a decent amount of comfort and convenience features like remote keyless entry, automatic climate control, tilt-and-telescope steering column, driver’s seat height adjustment, power windows, side curtain airbags and anti-lock brakes

With the introduction of the new Insight comes a few new features for LX and EX versions. The Insight LX for 2011 includes cruise control, a USB port for the four-speaker audio system, an armrest/center console and floor mats are included as well. The Insight EX still gets upgrades like alloy wheels, steering column mounted paddle shifters and a six-speaker audio system. New for 2011 on the EX are standard steering wheel mounted audio controls previously available only on the Insight EX with a navigation system. The satellite navigation system with a 6.5 inch screen, voice recognition and Bluetooth continues to be offered only on the Insight EX.

Mechanically, the 2011 Honda Insight remains unchanged. It uses a 1.3 liter four cylinder gasoline engine and a brushless DC electric motor placed between the engine and transmission. Honda calls this an Integrated Motor Assist or IMA for short. The Insight also has a regenerative braking system that recaptures energy while braking. The 2011 Honda Insight gets an EPA estimate of 40 mpg city/43 highway and 41 mpg in combined city and highway driving.

There’s no shortage of hybrid and electric vehicles that approach or top the $30,000 mark. Honda’s new lower priced Insight means more people can afford to use less.
