Continuously Variable Transmission 2dr Hatchback
2005 Honda Insight

The Honda Insight is a 2-seat hybrid hatchback vehicle designed for super low emissions. Although it is successful at saving the environment and the amount of gas you need, the Insight is also comfortable to drive and has high retail values. The Insight pairs a three-cylinder gasoline engine with a brushless electric motor located on the crankshaft. Behind the driver's and the passenger's seats there is a set of 144 V NiMH batteries. Under heavy acceleration, the electric motor provides additional power while during deceleration, the motor acts as a generator and recharges the batteries using a process called regenerative braking. The Insight can attain an EPA rating of 60 MPG City and 66 MPG Highway when equipped with the 5-speed manual transmission. For 2005, no significant changes were made.
