A big part of the Insight II disappointment IMO was because it could not tred on the Civic Hybrid's toes. The Insight II was to cost less, so it could never be as great as the Civic, otherwise it would kill their sales there. One thing I know is, they purposely geared it higher than the Civic which hurts the highway mileage.
