Official fuel consumption and CO2 figures for the Insight, Honda's new hybrid car, have been leaked onto the internet from a Honda customer magazine in Belgium ahead of the official launch next week at the Detroit motor show.
The Honda Insight, on sale in April, has a claimed combined fuel consumption figure of 64.2mpg and a CO2 output of 101g/km. This compares to the existing Honda Civic hybrid's figures of 61.4mpg and 109g/km.
