At the 2018 Detroit auto show, the Honda Insight Prototype was unveiled Monday to preview a production sedan due later this year.
Any new hybrid car from one of the pioneers of hybrid-electric vehicles is notable, and that's what Honda has delivered.
Honda called the car at the auto show an "Insight Prototype," though it looks about as close to a finished production car as any concept we've seen.

Interestingly, the third-generation Insight appears to be a hybrid version of the latest Civic, launched for the 2016 model year.
In other words: The Honda Civic Hybrid is dead! Long live the 2019 Honda Insight!
