The electic motor in an Insight develops only 12-13 Hp (10KW) and would probally only move the car less than 10MPH. I always thought that it would be neat to have the electric motor (50KW) of the 2nd generation Prius and the gas engine of an Insight in an Insight with a bigger battery pack and the ability to run in electic only mode only and the ability to plug it up at home to recharge at night. It would probally have a top speed of around 50 MPH if it was geared right.
