The Honda Insight leads the automotive pack as the most fuel-efficient vehicle sold in America as Honda gasoline-electric powered hybrid models claimed four of the top five spots in the U.S Department of Energy's "Fuel Economy Guide for Model Year 2003" report released today. In addition, the all-new 2003 Honda Accord earned the title as most fuel-efficient in the "Midsize Cars" category.
The Insights were joined in the top five by the Civic Hybrid, which went on sale in March. The Civic Hybrid with a 5-speed manual transmission earned an EPA city highway ratings of 46/51 mpg and 48/47 when equipped with an automatic CVT.
Honda's exclusive Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) hybrid system used in both the Insight and Civic combines a lightweight gasoline engine with a thin, lightweight electric motor for enhanced efficiency and additional power when needed. The IMA system automatically recharges its battery pack and never needs to be "plugged in" for recharging.
