By today's standards, an 1800lb car is unpossible.

1950lbs from the factory, currently minus a hybrid battery, minus rear wiper motor + wiper, minus mirrors, minus rear wiper nozzle + tubing + motor, minus antenna + wiring, lighter weight radio, and a few other things.

67HP in the Insight is very much like having 130HP in today's bloated 3500lb pig.
