The 2010 Honda Insight has been revealed in production form today with only a few differences like normal tires and the front fascia losing some of the high-cost chrome the Insight was sporting in concept mode. Honda's new Prius-killer is expected to retail for around $18,500, massively undercutting the $22,000 Toyota Prius. Expect full details at January's Detroit Auto Show even if Honda won't be unveiling it at an actual press conference. The press release and a high-res picture follow the jump.

The all-new 2009 Honda Insight hybrid will make its world debut in January at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The five-passenger, five-door Insight will go on sale in the spring of 2009.
The Insight is expected to have annual global sales of 200,000 units per year - approximately 100,000 in North America - and will utilize a new interactive, driver-focused fuel economy enhancement technology named the Ecological Drive Assist System (Eco Assist™).
A leader in the development of cleaner, more fuel-efficient mobility products, Honda introduced to market the first mass produced low-emission gasoline vehicles; America's first commercially produced gas-electric hybrid car and the world's first EPA-certified hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle, the FCX. In 2007, Honda was named "greenest automaker" by the Union of Concerned Scientists for the fourth straight time.
