Good news! :D I have corresponded with the Honda Institute and the UK's first Honda Insight Owners Day will take place on Friday 5th August.

I am meeting the guys at Honda in the next couple of weeks to decide on the days programme but it will include some or all of the following:

A tour of the Honda Institute and presentation of what they do
A presentation of the history of Honda and its products
Some Honda product demos
A presentation and demo of the technology behind Insight
An Insight quiz (with a Insight-related prize provided by me)
Hopefully a presentation by the Honda UK Product Development team about the IMAS/Insight 2

I was pleasantly surprised by the enthusiasm of the Honda UK contact:

"Wow! Yes we would love to have the Insight Owners Club visit the Honda Institute. We are always very happy to show off our facilities and to talk about Honda's fantastic technology. What you have requested is right up our street and I would be happy to have a face to face meeting to discuss details. Could you tell me, would they be bringing their vehicles? We have a very large workshop and it would be great to have fleet of Insights on display. The charge for the numbers you have requested would be only £20:00 per head (including lunch) and I can assure you we have experts on the Insight technology and the trip would be very worthwhile for you. I look forward to hearing from you."

As you can see there is a £20 fee, which includes a proper lunch. I am willing to pay this for the first 10 Insight drivers and their co-pilots that sign up, but I would be grateful for any reimbursements on the day! :)

When I have more details on the programme for the day I will let you know. The Honda Institute is in Colnbrook, Slough - just off the M4/M25, near Heathrow. Please post if you have any queries or suggestions and also to confirm that you and your Insight can attend.

I'm sure I can break the 100mpg barrier, maybe I hear MIMA calling.
Dissappointed to hear you haven't broken 100mpg yet - what about your two tanks posted at the top of the charts on greenhybrid? I was aspiring to the Insight being capable of close to 120 Imperial mpg. Did you all disuss your figures at the meet? What's the record for a UK Insight??

Looking back at that I may have made a calclative error. e.g. I multiplied my imperial gallon by 1.205 instead of dividing it it. :oops:

I guess I had it fixed in my head that the yanks always had everything bigger & better than the rest of the world, incuding the size of their gallon :lol:

Hi Guys, received the invoice and presentations on disc today from Honda. Please see list of documents available below:

History of Honda, PPT Powerpoint, 32029KB
Car-Bike-Boat, MPEG Movie, 53439KB
Honda TT intro, MPEG Movie, 72257KB
Insight Presentation, PPT, 64197KB
(Old) Civic IMA 'Construction & Function', PDF Adobe, 5004KB
Around ten separate training slide shows on the Insight dating back to 2000, PPT, 700-15000KB

As you can see most of the files are small enough to e-mail (especially to those with Broadband) which I would prefer to do. Please e-mail me with any requests.

You will also note that they did not send the new Civic IMA presentation...and the other information on the Insight is not overly technical. HTH!
