Description: This is my second G1 Insight. Bought it February 21st 2015. Asking price at the dealership was 5,900 bucks and I walked away with it for 4,500 bucks with a brand new Hybrid Automotive grid charger included in the deal! This one replaces Turtle, which my son now owns (and re-badged "Dr. Horrible").
