More profit on ICE-only cars? I've passed a good number of Honda dealers, and I've never seen an Insight from the road. They must keep them way in the back of the lot. When it came time for a test drive, my local dealer took 15 minutes of walking around to even FIND one on the lot. Even then, he needed to use the key-fob to trigger the alarm to find it.
Yeah, right. What's with them hiding these great cars? There has to be lower dealer incentive or something. So I just happened to be driving by the Honda dealer in Nyack, NY and stopped in. I drove around the lot, all around the entire complex, and NADA! Not one Insight!!! WTF? Tons of Accords...everywhere. I couldn't believe it. There has to be more to this story.

But today I had not ONE sighting of a white Insight, but parked next to a SECOND one in Belmar, NJ (Touring with parking sensors). On my way down, I followed an LX for miles. Had a NY official license plate. So, at least today was a great "sighting" day. I'd take mine out for a spin now, but the roads are too wet.

PS - I so want to see a hybrid FIT. That is the car I want to get my daughter after she graduates college. I think that would be a major hit.

You guys are onto something. When I went to purchase my Insight they tried to have me test drive an LX model... why in the world was that their go too model? I had to ask to test drive an EX. My guess is they were gonna try to upsell a better equipped Accord or Civic.

I think this is my first time seeing 2 Insights in one day. Saw a parked LX/EX White Orchid Pearl and a LX/EX Cosmic Blue Pearl Insight.

Told them to stop hiding the Insights in the back of the "locked" gated lot...and get at least one 'white one' in the showroom! Do they really need TWO Type R Civics in the showroom? All they bring up front is SUV's, Accords and Civics. They just don't want to sell the Insight for some strange reason.

I'm in upstate ny with an Aegean Blue EX, but saying upstate ny is like saying the state minus the city. LOL

Ha! That is so true. It's a HUGE state, and NYC/LI is a small part of it. Where does "downstate" really start? Da Bronx?

Good to know we are not alone "upstate".

The Aegean Blue Insight still eludes me, pretty much seen every Insight color, except for that one, and Lunar Silver around Boston.

If I plan on being in the Boston Area, I'll give you a heads up.

I live in a suburb of Phoenix, Arizona and have driven my 2019 Insight Touring Sedan each day since I purchased it May 6th. As yet, I have not seen another 2019 Insight on the road in Maricopa County.

The only other car I have had when first purchased, a Lexus SC430, seemed to be the only one on the road.

Every once in a while waiting for a stop light to change, I observe curious glances from other drivers.
