40% less to run
Want to go back to when fuel was $1.23 a litre?
You'll need a time machine or a Honda Insight
When you travel in the Honda Insight, you pay the equivalent of $1.23 for the same distance travelled in the average hatch. So you don't need to go back to the future to enjoy lower fuel costs, today.
With an official ADR fuel economy of 4.6l/100kms, the Insight costs 40% less to run than the weighted average running costs of the hatchback market segment.
That means, when travelling the same distance in the Insight and in an average hatchback, the Insight costs 40% less in running costs. With a petrol price of $2.05 per litre that equates to $1.23 per litre for the same distance travelled in the average hatchback.
Insight was proven to be New Zealand's most cost efficient car to run against all comers in the
AA Energywise Rally in October 2010.
Hedge your bets
Do you believe that fuel prices will continue to increase over the next few years?
There is a way to protect yourself against higher fuel prices that doesn't involve a call to one of those commodities brokers they talk about on the news.
Costing 40% less to run than the average hatch, the Honda Insight provides a hedge against the price of petrol. As fuel prices move, your Insight costs remain 40% less to run than the average hatch, meaning lower future fuel prices than non Insight hatch drivers.
Whatever the price, the Insight's frugal running costs will continue to give you returns over the average hatch available in the market today.
