they are very slow, they do not get great mpgs as you would expect.. but as an actual car i really liked mine!
standard stereo was alright cruise control, heated seats etc...! had no issues with mine for just under a year before i swapped out for the diesel

You'll need a 2012 MY Insight as its the only Honda hybrid below the 100 g/km c02 limit. A Civic Hybrid, Jazz Hybrid or earlier Insight WILL NOT get you congestion charge immunity.

I had thought of changing to a Lexus ct200.

However I have long term worries about the reliability of the batteries especially if you don't keep the "electrons flowing" everyday.

Most certainly at the moment they didn't get a good resale value from the trade (Mind you neither does an 08 CIVIC :( )
