Honda Insight Hybrid was first rolled out on the market in 1999, two years after its main rival Toyota Prius, but was the first hybrid to reach North America. Toyota Prius was exclusively addressed to the Japanese market, a fact that allowed Insight to gain an unexpected market interest in the United States.
