But to begin with, Honda Company will show officially the same-name prototype at the Detroit motor show in January this year. The photos of the novelty are already available in the network. The changes will be great. Instead of the hatchback car we will see a pretty four-door sedan model. The new Insight will take place between the Civic and Accord models in the brand’s line-up. The front-drive hybrid will be equipped with a gasoline atmospheric V4, electric motor, variator and a lithium-ion battery. Petrol-electric hybrid power plant is borrowed from Accord. The serial version will make its debut next summer.
