"Cover Story" piece on hybrid automobiles, which have both a 3-cylinder gas engine and a 10-kw, battery-powered electric motor. Both Honda and Toyota are currently selling them in the U.S. According to some owners, they not only get 60 or more miles per gallon of gasoline, but combustion is nearly complete and results in logarithmically lower emissions. The Honda Insight, now in its second production year, scored quite well in crash tests and has a ticket price of just over $21,000. The Toyota Prius also sells for about $21,000. Maine currently has 46 Insights and 54 Priuses registered.
