2013 Honda Insight Proves Hybrids Can be Cost-Efficient

When Kelley Blue Book gives out its Cost of Ownership Award each year to pinpoint the most cost-efficient vehicles on the market, it's a good idea to take notice. Recognizing the fact that there's more to ownership costs than the price of fuel -especially when it comes to vehicle depreciation. The good news this year?  The 2013 Honda Insight proves that hybrids can retain their value better than the standard automobile, as it was chosen for the award this year!

So, what else is taken into account in terms of ownership costs? Well, interest on the vehicle's loan , insurance rates, taxes and fees, and maintenance and repairs are all considered.
