Take a look under the hood

Every car enthusiast wants to know what comes under the hood of the newest vehicle to hit the market even if they aren’t going to be buying it. The 2019 Honda Insight Hybrid was designed to beat out all other hybrid competition, so you won’t be disappointed. Under the hood you will find a third-generation two-motor hybrid drive train with a 1.5-liter DOHC i-VTEC® Atkinson-cycle inline-four engine. This engine provides 151 horsepower and 197 lb.-ft. of torque with the quickest acceleration of any hybrid on the market. The two-motor design allows the Insight to operate without a conventional automatic transmission. [1]

Drive options of the Honda Insight Hybrid

As a hybrid, the drivetrain on the 2019 Honda Insight Hybrid uses power from the gasoline engine, as well as the electric motors to shift through three drive operations. In EV Drive mode, the vehicle is fully powered by its electric drive motor pulling power from the battery. Hybrid Drive mode uses the gasoline engine to drive the generator motor to provide electrical power to the drive motor. The third and final mode is the Engine Drive mode and it is only used in certain circumstances as it connects the gasoline powered engine directly to the drive wheels to control the car.
