The CVT maxes out quite tall though. 2000 RPM at 100 km/h (62 mph) or 1200 RPM at 60 km/h. It bottoms out at 1100 RPM.

Would be nice if it had a direct drive option to bypass the CVT at that ratio. Honda missed a golden opportunity.
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Investors woes:
