I did a quick search today, I am not totally sure but the Civic's IMA motor is listed as 10KW which is the same as the Insight. So it is very possible that there is not much difference between the motors.

Even the Accord has the same battery capacity of 6.x AH like it was pointed to before, the motor can not be much different.

The only difference I have found is that the Accord motor thickness is listed as 68 mm, the Civic is 65 mm and the Insight is 60 mm. Maybe those have more torque and efficiency.

Or it is just that to be able to let the gas engine power go through the IMA (bolted directly to it) the IMA motor needs more thickness for staingth.
