2019 Honda Insight Kicks Off Production In Indiana Following $32.5 Million Investment

The all-new 2019 Honda Insight has begun production in Indiana, following a massive $61.5 million investment in both the Indiana plant as well as the ones in Ohio, where the hybrid battery pack in assembled.

All Insight models for the North American market will be built at the Greensburg plant in Indiana, where an investment of $32.5 million was made in order to support production. A further $29 million was invested in Ohio to oversee production of the Insight’s twin electric motor unit.

“The new Honda Insight exemplifies our growing investment in the production of electrified vehicles in America and our associates in Indiana are proud to play a key role in this initiative,” stated Isao Matsuzaki, president of Honda Manufacturing of Indiana. “As the lead plant for Insight production globally, we are committed to delivering the quality and reliability that our customers expect.”

Changes made to the Indiana plant include a new 19,200 square-foot building expansion, necessary to accommodate the assembly of the car’s front-end module, a modular approach first introduced on the 2016 Civic – now used on the Accord and CR-V as well.

The 2019 Honda Insight offers seating for five while boasting modern safety and connectivity systems as standard, such as Honda Sensing, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The new model is scheduled to arrive in Honda dealerships in early summer.

    I don’t know how Honda managed to take the sleek looking concept model and make it look nerdy in production form, but they did. One more nail in the coffin for sedans: check.

      first they would have to know how to make a car that looks good so you can’t blame them

      Lol!
      Looks like a melange of civic and Accord in size and style. I think that is the sweet spot right now for what this car is. It has to stand out and I think it will be a hit.

      It looks like the only difference between the concept and production model is blacked out lights and windows. Everything else looks the same. Honda’s concepts are typically very close to the production models because they don’t show them until they are almost ready.

      They literally only changed the wheels and tail light tint.

      It amazes me how petty people in online car forums can be…
