Honda will be selling its newest hybrid car, the Insight, this spring. Despite not having a price tag just yet, the automaker has said that it should be priced “significantly below” any of the other hybrid options currently available.

The original Insight was Honda’s first American gas-electric hybrid vehicle, introduced in the U.S. in 1999. It was the first car to be more fuel efficient than 70 mpg.  The new Insight, built as a hybrid from the start, has an aerodynamic design that the company expects will make its fuel efficiency evident.

The car is a small, five-door coupe with folding back seat, and will debut on October 2 at the Paris Motor Show.
