The dashboard in the new Honda Insight has dials and controls that let you exactly how you’re doing, as the guidance in the speedometer that from green to blue if a bit too aggressive and lead-footed (and applies to the brake pedal as as to the accelerator). You’ll also a scoring function that how economically/sustainably you’ve been – this scoring function each individual drive as as your lifetime score, so if you had to flog the five-door hatchback a bit (e.g. if you’ve had to whizz a into the emergency department at local hospital or if you’ve had to to say a last goodbye to a dying – it happens!), you can make up for the less driving next time and your overall average.
