John, In 2002 I purchased a Honda Insight Hybrid which has been discontinued by Honda. Yes, they still produce an Insight, but it is far from the car I bought in 2002. The original Insight was a 3 cylinder all aluminum two seat car with plenty of room that could travel the interstates at 80 MPH comfortably. Oh yes, and gets 61 MPG. I have almost 100,000 miles on it. It is the perfect commuter car that I have driven coast to coast. If they were still making them, I would buy one in a minute. I paid $21,000 for it and they claimed they were loosing $4000 per car. So, for $25,000 + inflation you should be able to buy one today and provide a reasonable profit to Honda. The car is already tooled an the test of the design is complete.
