When

If you are looking forward to the release of the all-new 2019 Honda Insight hybrid as much as we are, you are in luck. Production of the Honda Insight has officially begun. It will be ready to go this summer and will be arriving at Russell Honda in just a few months.

Where

The Insight is being produced right here in America. The main production plant is in Greensburg, Indiana, while three Ohio plants will produce its powertrain components. Altogether, Honda invested a combined $61.5 million for these plants to prepare them for the Insight production.

“The new Honda Insight exemplifies our growing investment in the production of electrified vehicles in America and our associates in Indiana are proud to play a key role in this initiative,” said Isao Matsuzaki, president of Honda Manufacturing of Indiana. “As the lead plant for Insight production globally, we are committed to delivering the quality and reliability that our customers expect.”

With the introduction of the Insight, it will be the fifth electrified Honda model released within 18 months. It will follow the Clarity series and the 2019 Honda Accord Hybrid. The Insight will be a compact sedan hybrid that will fit in the Honda lineup between the Civic and Accord.

Introducing the Honda Clarity PHEV

Honda Clarity PHEVWhat happens when you combine Honda-level reliability with mid-size sedan comfort and intelligent, hybrid efficiency? You get the new Honda Clarity PHEV, the latest model to join the Honda lineup. The Clarity PHEV is modeled after the Honda Accord mid-size sedan, so it’s a roomy hybrid option. Add to that a price tag starting at just $33,400 and a 47-mile battery range, and it’s clear that the Honda Clarity PHEV is an amazing option.

It can be hard to make the leap to a hybrid vehicle, especially when you note that the price tag—though very reasonable—is around $10,000 higher than the base-level Accords at Russell Honda. However, the Honda Clarity PHEV has an EPA MPGe rating of 110, and will probably perform most in-town driving without relying on gasoline at all, so that drivers of the Clarity PHEV can expect to spend significantly less at the gas pump.

In addition to being exceptionally efficient, the Honda Clarity PHEV comes equipped with generous standard features that make its entire design feel as modern as its powertrain. Each trim comes with an infotainment system that’s equipped with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™. The Clarity PHEV also comes with standard advanced safety features.
