Frankfurt Show 2011 Highlights: 2012 Honda Insight

The new Honda Insight hybrid will at last produce under 100g/km Co2.

The revised car has been unveiled at this month’s Frankfurt motor show and emits a claimed 96g/km Co2 thanks to enhanced aerodynamics and powertrain tweaks.

The Insight’s CVT transmission and air-conditioning system have also been altered to improve efficiency and the suspension has been revised for an “overall improvement to ride comfort and stability.”

Thanks to the reduction in Co2 emissions, the new Insight is exempt from the London Congestion Charge and no annual road tax is payable.

Cosmetic changes to the Honda Insight include a new front grille, slimmer rear spoiler and “modified tailgate garnish,” according to Honda. The rear wiper motor has also been downsized.
