Mountains? WHAT mountains?

We have driven our CVT extensively over many mountain passes (and yes, we took our CVT to Pike's Peak, and drove the little sucker to the 14,100 level at the very tippy-top). OK, OK, OK. If you floor it all the way up, the assist eventually depletes the IMA and eventually it goes away. But if you drive it like a normal person, ICE power is no problem, the battery assists if required, and life is peachy.

Like sno779 so aptly put it, "the Insight was designed for optimum mpg and not mph or climbing, but it does all three very well, but not all at the same time." It's like the old "you want it good, fast and cheap? Pick two and call me back..." joke... :lol:
