Someone on insightcentral gave me a link to a German site where I found 10k€ insight 1. Too much for me and at that price I would prefer a Prius 2 as the local dealers have experience with it.

About the 1.2TDI by VW & Audi, I searched them during a couple months but it seams they are rare in France. I'm talking about CO2 a lot, but more and more I want a really clean car about NOx and particles, which any diesel isn't able to reach, even the 50k€ "clean" diesel sold by Audi, as it's only ULEV while Insight and Prius have always been SULEV.

Anyway, I'm really interested into what you'll achieve with your Insight, by hypermiling it and ecomodding it.

It would be interesting to see what an Insight 1 without batteries can achieve

Have fun,
