Motown Auto Show Sticks Mainly With Muscle. Mercedes Shows Off C350e Plug-in Hybrid. Honda Brings Back Insight Hybrid


A production version of the Honda Insight hybrid electric sedan, identical to the prototype on display above at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, is due in showrooms this Summer.

Back in 1999, Honda was the first automobile maker to place a hybrid in the hands of drivers on American roads, and Honda Insights from that model year, until 2014 when it was withdrawn from the market, and are still lovingly owned by many.

With Honda promising a combined rating “in excess of 50 m.p.g.” for the Insight, the sedan is poised to as an option for buyers who might also consider Spring’s availability of pricier, but similarly-mileage-rated, Mercedes C350e plug-in hybrid, also at the 2018 Detroit NAIAS.
