    non-plugin car with electric motors. electric motors run by batteries charged by gasoline engine… a big shame in year 2018. In 10 years from now, people will laugh at this dragging and lagging response of big companies to EV revolution.

    This is just as ugly as the Prius. Because it's made by Honda.

    probably on of the best A to B kind of cars! Not ugly, not too slow, and easy to live with.

    Don't you dare diss the lanewatch. You can leave it on and i do. Its very useful and much easier to lane change. You get a view of the entire road on the right. Auto enthusiasts just don't get it. And because of you guys honda took it out in 2017 and brought it back due to overwhelming demand.

    The back up and lane watch cameras do not linger on the display for a good reason: limiting driver distraction from the road and surroundings.

    The only thing that's turning me down about this car is the transmission . I wish they went with a dual clutch like the Japanese hybrid cars

    I miss Cooley's snap backs. He's the inside man now though. Well deserved though as he put in the work for many years! Probably more πŸ’Έ too!

    Here's the thing the old inside High Ridge were actually notorious pieces of crap that you really had to drive carefully to really get good fuel economy on and they weren't necessarily known for being reliable like the Toyota hybrids as well as Honda has been known for over inflating its fuel economy numbers 4 it's hybrids before giving the very top tier very best possible tested fuel economy out of the multitude of fuel economy runs done where as Toyota usually goes on the safe end of time that the fuel economy is and they don't give you the best out of a multitude of runs they kind of tell you the worst out of a multitude of runs which is way nicer cuz it's much easier to achieve that type of fuel economy not to mention that the Honda Accord Hybrid which this is basically a small version of is a car that was actually not known for being a great fuel economy car at highway speeds but was known for being pretty good at City speeds but still not giving you the actual fuel economy numbers that Honda was claiming where is my Toyota Prius with a little bit of aggressive driving actually hits the mark on what Toyota says it will get City Highway combined and meats and even slightly exceeds the highway fuel economy and on straight City Driving actually meets or exceeds a certain city driving but gets pretty close on the claim combined the way that the powertrain Works in this car is the gasoline engine cannot engage the tires at all at lower speeds until you hit about 20 or 25 miles an hour so only the electric motors can kick in and work and if the battery is too depleted the engine will not even shut off when you come to a stop it will keep running to run the generator which is mated to the smaller of the two electric motors so that way they will be charged in the battery for when you take off off the line even if you floor it the engine can't even kick in and give you any assistance until you hit a very minimum of 13 miles an hour so at parking lot speeds this is essentially an electric vehicle and once you start hitting cruising speeds more like 25 30 35 miles an hour then it turns into more of a hybrid or gasoline powered vehicle unlike most other hybrids even though there is dual motors built into the hybrid system they are not of equal size there is one that is bigger than the other the bigger one is your primary motor that takes care of moving you down the road or hoping to recapture energy as you are slowing down and the smaller one primarily works as a starter motor to start the gasoline engine and also as a generator to help charge the batteries it is actually a good thing they made this design change on the Insight because the Accord Hybrid even though it's not known for getting the type of fuel economy that they claim was still a pretty fuel efficient car and a reliable one at that compared to the Civic Hybrid and the Insight hybrid so hopefully this car will at least be a lot more reliable and it is now more spacious luckily but it is still a Honda Insight hybrid so realistically what you can expect is lower 40s for fuel economy maybe mid-forties and on occasion over 40s and lower 50s where is in the Toyota Prius you can generally count on Mid to upper 40s and lower to mid 50s even sometimes upper 50s for fuel economy the reason a lot of hybrids are so ugly at least the ones that really truly want to try to be fuel efficient like the Prius is that design actually helps to lower their drag coefficient as they move through the air and that is part of what helps a hybrid to get its good fuel economy.

    They just need to make a plug in version of it to compete with the Prius Prime.

    55 mpg is bullcrap….real world is 43 mpg average and you will NEVER see 51 mpg. Driving on back roads at 35 mph is NOT real world driving.

    just keep ECON on all the time, you'll easily beat the EPA ratings, with hyper-miling you can get even higher scores
