It’s been said from time to time that the Gen 1 insight teaches its owner to drive it. Mine has slowly taught me to drive it so the IMA battery is always as fully charged as possible. This means that for the most part I try to avoid calling on it for assist. I’m sure this is mostly because preserving the health of my IMA battery has become a priority due to its expensive replacement costs. I suspect tho that this may not be the best thing for the IMA battery. That in fact working it hard and regularly may in fact be the best thing, driving it like you stole it, as they say.I wonder what you others might think about this.
