The Paris show Article said both;

1) "Power for the Honda Insight Hybrid comes from a 1.3 liter gasoline engine. Honda is not saying how much output the car will produce but does say that it will be assisted by an electric motor. Fuel-economy is rumored to be somewhere north of 60 mpg."

2) "The all-new Insight, which will be developed based on this Insight Concept, will be a five-door, five-passenger hatchback equipped with Honda’s lightweight and compact hybrid system, with a 1.3-liter gasoline engine serving as the main power source, assisted by an electric motor. While achieving fuel economy on par with the Civic Hybrid, the new Insight will also achieve excellent utility and light and comfortable driving through the adoption of a new platform developed specifically for this vehicle."

Ok, this is like the campain for President? First you say 60mpg and then 45mpg, will the real MPG please stand up??

Well the key word in your first quote was RUMORED. The fuel economy will be close to the HCH probably 42/46.
