The Insight is expected to have annual global sales of 200,000 units per
year — approximately 100,000 in North America — and will utilize a new
interactive, driver-focused fuel economy enhancement technology named the
Ecological Drive Assist System (Eco Assist(TM)).

A leader in the development of cleaner, more fuel-efficient mobility
products, Honda introduced to market the first mass produced low-emission
gasoline vehicles; America’s first commercially produced gas-electric hybrid
car and the world’s first EPA-certified hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle, the FCX.
In 2007, Honda was named “greenest automaker” by the Union of Concerned
Scientists for the fourth straight time.
