Honda Resuming Sales of Inisight Hybrid, Introducing the Freed Hybrid in Japan

Published October 31, 2011 | By Aaron Turpen

Honda has introduced a newly-refreshed Insight hybrid model, including an Exclusive model with a 1.5L engine.  The company is also planning to launch the Freed hybrid minivan in Japan as another hybrid option.

The Insight begins MSRP at $24,221 (in Japan) and the monthly sales target is 1,500 units there.  The Freed will target 10,000 units and begin at $26,969 in Japan.  In Japan, more than 1/3 of Honda autos on the road are hybrids, according to the company.

Insight.  The refreshed Insight offers new exterior styling elements and refined interior. With an upgraded 1.3-liter i-VTEC engine plus IMA (Integrated Motor Assist) hybrid system, the Insight offers fuel economy of 27.2 km/L (64 mpg US, 3.7 L/100km) as measured in JC08 mode and 31.0 km/L (73 mpg US, 3.2 L/100km) as measured in 10·15 mode, while maintaining driving performance.

Sound insulation and absorption materials have been added to increase interior quietness. To maximize handling stability and ride comfort, suspension settings have been updated, and application of VSA (Vehicle Stability Assist) is now standard.

Insight Exclusive.  The new Insight Exclusive model shares the 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine with the CR-Z sport hybrid model, but specially tuned for the new Insight Exclusive model. The Insight Exclusive offers fuel economy of 23.2 km/L (54.6 mpg US, 4.3 L/100km) as measured in JC08 mode and 26.5 km/L (62.3 mpg US, 3.8 L/100km) as measured in 10·15 mode.

Freed hybrids . With a combination of advanced packaging technology and Honda’s lightweight, compact IMA (Integrated Motor Assist) hybrid system, the new models feature one of the best fuel economy ratings among compact minivans and tall wagons, according to Honda: 21.6 km/L (50.8 mpg US, 4.6 L/100km) as measured in JC08 mode and 24.0 km/L (56.5 mpg US, 4.2 L/100km) as measured in 10·15 mode.
