    Honda will release the new Insight this spring as a direct competitor to the Prius.

    [bl]NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Honda Motor Co. unveiled a pure-hybrid concept car Thursday that hopes to go head to head with Toyota's wildly popular Prius.

    The carmaker showed images of the Insight that will go on sale in the United States in the spring, it said. The car, which will be sold only as a hybrid, will be a five-seat hatchback and will be priced "significantly below hybrids available today," Honda said in an announcement.[/bl]

    It's good that the Prius will get some real competition.

    Looks a lot better than the first Insight, that's for sure.

    It's the simplest solution that provides for both battery storage and cargo storage.
