Honda Insight rolls off assembly line in Indianaby Justin King
The Insight's hybrid battery pack and twin electric motor unit are assembled nearby in Marysville and Russells Point, Ohio.
Honda has kicked off production of its all-new Insight in Greensburg, Indiana.
The US factory will supply all of North America and serve as the lead plant for Insight production globally. Production efforts are split across several facilities including Russells Point, Marysville, and Anna, Ohio, where the car's twin electric motor unit, hybrid battery and 1.5-liter Atkinson-cycle engine are built.
The Insight employs a modular front-end construction method that was first introduced in the 2016 Civic before expanding to the latest Accord and CR-V.
The hybrid sedan will slot between the Civic and Accord in Honda's lineup, with seating for five and 151 net system horsepower for an expected 55-mpg city rating.
The first units will begin arriving in showrooms this summer.
