The ground-breaking Honda Insight is no longer in production, and only a few units are left for sale north of the border. The Insight was the first gas-electric hybrid and continues to turn heads with its futuristic styling. It's also the leading gas-miser on the market. Not many Insights have been sold in Canada. The best year was 2000 with 155 units. Last year there were only 5 buyers. For those who want something different, the Canadian Insight has a 5-speed manual transmission, compared to the CVT offered in the U.S. LIke the Yankee version, however, the Canadian Insight won't run on electrical power alone.
