We have been remiss in updating our news page lately but our regular <a href="http://www.insightcentral.net/community">Community</a> participants have been aware of this news for some time. The next Insight is -- big surprise! -- a direct Prius competitor. Clearly, Honda has realized Toyota's success with the first- and second-generation Prius was achieved in great part thanks to its mainstream, utilitarian appeal (in addition to great technology, of course). We here at InsightCentral.net are first-gen Insight adorers but we always knew the original (or "classic") Insight, in all its sporty, fuel-efficient and beautifully-engineered glory, was intended for a very small slice of the automotive sales pie. This move from Honda will surely help its hybrid sales to become viable again. <b>December 2008 Update:</b> Full details on the new Insight are available at <a href="http://automobiles.honda.com/insight-hybrid/" target="new">Honda.com</a>. Honda also has a mini-site devoted to the classic Insight, currently available <a href="http://automobiles.honda.com/insight-hybrid/heritage.aspx" target="new">here</a>.
