Wow! It looks like there are enough improvements to consider this a true second generation IMA system. It even has a low speed EV mode!

Honda Announces Development of New Honda Hybrid System Featuring 3-Stage i-VTEC + IMA

Almost 10 minute movie demonstrating the new engine

Simply beautiful, what an advanced engine/motor package.

How well will it hypermile though? :)

NOW I'm getting excitied about a next generation Insight. If this technology is applied to a sub 1 liter 3 cylinder and put in an Insight-like body, we could be seeing EPA ratings of 80mpg plus! :D

Instead, and this is just a guess, the next gen civic hybrid will get around 60-65mpg, and allow honda to discontinue the Insight and still have the highest MPG car in the US. :cry:
