Honda provides first insights into… 2019 Insight, prior to NAIAS introduction image

Pun intended, the Japanese automaker is providing an initial glimpse of the 2019 Honda Insight prototype that will debut in front of the worldwide audience of the 2018 Noth American International Auto Show in Detroit this coming January.

Honda has decided to make the jump to the all-new third-generation of the long running Insight hybrid in time for the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, with the hybrid design featuring a completely new design all-around. According to the company, which is going to provide all the details during the Detroit release event, says the new Insight comes with “premium style and high fuel efficiency,” arriving to slot into the gap seen in between the compact Civic and the Accord, which has grown in size with every new generation. It’s a natural competitor to the equally longstanding Toyota Prius and will make use of the new generation Honda two-motor hybrid system.

“With its sophisticated styling, dynamic stance, ample interior space and best-in-class performance, the all-new Insight embodies Honda’s approach to creating electrified vehicles without the typical tradeoffs,” explains Henio Arcangeli, Jr., senior vice president at American Honda. The 2019 model year Insight is going to arrive at dealerships in summer 2018, almost marking two decades to the day since the nameplate was first released in the United States.
