What is it?
The original Honda Insight, known as the ZE1, utilised a
revvy 1.0 litre 3-cylinder VTEC petrol engine and ultra-thin, brushless inline
electric motors creating one of the first hybrid cars on sale, the car was a
showpiece for Honda’s R&D department borne from a budget that was off the
When Honda’s all aluminium, spacecraft-like Insight was
released in the UK in 1999 it cost £15,490, only around 250 made it to UK
shores but interestingly most still survive demonstrating how well engineered
they were.
What’s it got?
Our example has the 5-speed manual gearbox which when on the
motorway utilising ‘lean burn’ offers up to 100 MPG. There are creature
comforts including Air conditioning, electric power steering and electric
Inside, the digital
dashboard offers a magnificent, futuristic display of green and amber LEDs as
you strive for the optimum driving efficiency to achieve the upper MPG figures
to get into the world ranking !
Being totally aluminium the body doesn’t succumb to the
usual rust associated issues which plagued Japanese cars of the era.
As far as safety goes, Honda claim that the aluminium body
can absorb up to 50% more than a traditional steel structure.
UK cars are zero-rated for road tax and are ULEZ compliant
so no cost in adopted cities. It’s cheaper to run than even the most economical
modern cars.
How does it drive?
Don’t be fooled by the relatively low power figures, the car
weighs 825KG, has a Honda built manual gearbox, a VTEC motor in a super light,
slippery body and skinny Tyres with a top speed of 112MPH. The flywheel acts as
a generator as the car drives along and incorporates stop/start technology.….
both Harry Metcalfe and Chris Harris rated the car highly for its driving
Why this one?
Our low-mileage UK supplied example finished in immaculate
Silverstone paintwork has been cherished and presents in incredible condition
inside and out.
The car remains delightfully original, drives extremely well
and comes with all supporting history, documents and keys along with a full
service history.
This forgotten Honda was rare when launched in 1999 and all
but almost impossible to find in this low-mileage original condition today.
The Mk1 Insight already has a loyal followership is
beginning to be recognised by the market as a bona fide modern classic option,
buy one now whilst you still can and enjoy Honda’s bold innovation.
Pub fact
The legendary original Honda NSX was handcrafted at the
firm’s specially-built Tochigi plant the Insight and S2000 were built at the
same factory. Yes, this frugal hybrid was built alongside a mid-engined,
Ferrari-baiting supercar.Any inspection welcomed.
