Our hybrid technology has blossomed since we introduced the first gas-electric hybrid to the U.S. market in 1999. Today, the Insight is one of the cornerstones of our environmental leadership efforts.
 

Eco Assist™

The Insight comes equipped with fuel-efficiency[1] enhancement technology called Eco Assist™. Push the dash-mounted ECON button to modify various vehicle systems, minimize energy use and increase fuel efficiency[1]. This sophisticated feedback system uses ambient color behind the speedometer to indicate how efficiently[1] you’re driving. An Eco Display provides feedback on braking and acceleration. Plus, Eco Score provides ongoing support.

Integrated Motor Assist IMA®

The IMA® electric motor works in conjunction with the gasoline engine, and supplies additional power and torque in assist mode[1]. The motor's ultra-thin design allows it to be mounted between the engine and the transmission. The motor also functions as the generator for the IMA® system during deceleration, and as a starter, quickly spinning the engine up to idle speed.
