900 hp Honda hybrid engines will appear in IndyCar's 2022 season! It will have the traditional hybrid components (multi-phase motor, inverter, battery, regen from braking) and eliminates manual hand-held electric starters. The extra horsepower and "push-to-pass" power boost are expected to improve the pace and overall time of races.

Two questions on my mind:
1 - WHEN can I get this extra power for my street-worthy Insight?
2 - Are they gonna start piping the fake engine noises EXTERNALLY for bystander effect?
