2009 Honda Fit - Click above for a high-res image gallery

We've been hearing rumors of an impending Honda Fit Hybrid for the last few years, and according to a report from Japan's Nikkei business daily, its introduction may finally be right around the corner in the fall of 2010. If true, the new Fit Hybrid would be Honda's entry level hybrid here in the United States, with its rumored ¥1.5 million (approximately $15,800) base price slotting well below the current Insight's already attractive price point.

The third prong of Honda's hybrid strategy would likely be the CR-Z hatchback, which is expected to make an appearance at the Tokyo Motor Show later this year, where there's also a chance that we'll see an all-new version of the Honda Civic Hybrid.

With all of this in mind, we wonder what is the most attractive price point for a mainstream hybrid vehicle in the United States. If Honda were to offer a Fit Hybrid at around $16K, an Insight at around $20K and a Civic Hybrid for around $24K, which model do you think would be the most popular? Or would you be willing to lose the practicality of an extra set of seats for the sportiness of a CR-Z? Click past the break to take our poll.
