Honda All-new Insight Concept

Honda’s all-new Insight concept car has been unveiled at the 2009 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit. This 5-passenger car is powered by a 1.3-liter 4-cylinder i-VTEC gasoline engine and a 10-kilowatt electric motor form the foundation of the Integrated Motor Assist(IMA) hybrid system. The electric motor is positioned inline between the engine and the continuously variable transmission, that adds power during acceleration and in certain cruising situations, and recaptures energy from the vehicle’s forward momentum during braking.
