The new model carries the 3rd-gen 2-motor hybrid system of Honda. This system includes a powerful plug-in motor thanks to a Li-ion battery pack and a 1.5—litre 4-cylinder engine. The system is capable of putting out 267 Nm of torque and 151 PS. The Insight is claimed to have an average gas consumption of over 23 km/l.
Sport, Economy, and Normal are the three modes of driving in the new Insight. The model also brings out three levels of braking performance. One thing to applaud this model is the plug-in motor powers the axles directly; therefore, it says goodbye the old automatic transmission. With other upgrades in the drive axles and the engine, the new Insight is expected to have a much more efficient and powerful operation.
