Detroit 09': 2010 Honda Insight Hybrid Officially Gets 40/43 MPG

Honda has officially took the wraps off the 2010 Honda Insight Hybrid at the Detroit Auto Show.

In addition to finally seeing the production version of the Insight, we now also know what kind of gas mileage its going to get. The EPA has officially certified the Insight at 40/43 mpg (city/highway). The Insight is powered by a 1.3L 4-cylinder engine mated to a 13 horsepower electric motor.

The Insight will reach showrooms in April and have a starting price lower than the Civic Hybrid.

Those official numbers seem kinda low considering that Autoblog just posted a test review and they got 63 mpg on an efficiency drive and 44 mpg on a mountain trip.
