dedicated hybrid from Honda will go on sale in the spring of 2009.
The prototype was unveiled at the Paris Auto show, and the production model is very similar.
The North American International Auto Show in Detroit happens in January and will see the introduction of the new HS 250h, an all new dedicated hybrid from Lexus, as well.
Honda has big plans for the five seater, five door hybrid car. They've targeted 200,000 sales a year globally, with 100,000 in North America. Despite the inclusion of their Eco Assist display, the Insight will come at a price tag of under $20,000. (I've seen a reported MSRP of $18,500.)
