When stopped, you really have to Pounce on the gas, to get the car to move! Another BIG issue a lot of Blind Spots in the rear of the car. Backing up can be a challenge!. You have to use all side mirrors if changing lanes.
The Insight is a name many do not recognize like the name Prius. The car has been out for six or seven years, but had an interuption after the "wave" hit Japan and production for America was halted. The car is like the "Toy" in size and quality. The hybrid operation is a little different, but the miles per gallon result is great for the price of the vehicle! The car has a CTV transmission which requires a little adjustment. Nisson has converted all their cars to the new transmission and Honda uses it in the Insight. There are no gear shifts like a 4 or 5 speed, just a smooth change in the drive. The Insight applys the electric boost through the transmission to help give a boost when needed. The most adjustment needed is for the "stop" mode. When you come to a stop, the engine stops. when you ldt up on the brake, the engine starts, ready to go. That saves gas when you are at a stop, like in slow traffic. The car we drive started with 40 MPG when we didn't know how to drive it. We don't really work on it , but get a regular 44 or 45 MPG with mixed situation driving. The car is a star. MPG for a normal price.
