      Honda Civic Hybrid is not the main rival Prius. Yes, it was good, but not so much to become a leader in this niche. Where Toyota has become dangerous for the newly released Honda Insight, which a more impressive appearance of a cheaper analog Toyota Prius at $ 5 000 (due to the reduction of the cost of production of batteries).
      Of course Honda Insight will not be the absolute leader, but the Toyota Prius will have to move and it is a fact.
