Honda Insight


Once wearing the crown of the world’s most fuel-efficient car (for 7 years, no less), the first generation Honda Insight is one of the first mass produced hybrids and holds a special place in the history of the motor car.

Our early production 1999 manual example is in wonderful condition despite its 170,000kms and was most recently owned by a head member of the Honda Insight Club in the UK.

The daring body styling of the Insight (sometimes affectionately dubbed ‘The UFO’) is all in the name of aerodynamics and the car certainly stands out in a crowd. Its construction is unusual, too, in that it uses a fully aluminium chassis to keep weight at a minimum – the same process used in the Honda NSX and S2000.

Combining a lightweight 1.0 3-cylinder petrol engine and Honda’s Integrated Motor Assist system, the car produces a total of 73bhp when both motors are engaged and averages around 65mpg for combined driving.

With any technologically advanced car, a comprehensive service history is essential and it’s hard to imagine a more complete history file than the one with this Insight. It shows that the car has just had a fresh service as well as a brand new battery at great expense.

The Honda Insight is an important and unique car and this example is hard to fault.
