Default Minneapolis Honda Dealer Delivers 100,000th Hybrid Vehicle in US

Torrance, Calif. - Aug 31 —

American Honda Motor Co. Inc., announced
today that it has delivered 100,000 hybrid vehicles to retail customers since
it began offering the gasoline-electric technology nearly six years ago. Jamie
Gulley of Minneapolis, Minnesota became the 100,000th hybrid customer when he
took delivery of a Honda Civic Hybrid from Richfield-Bloomington Honda in Richfield,
MN.


Honda was the first manufacturer to offer a hybrid vehicle in North America
and the first to offer three distinct hybrid vehicles, the Insight, Civic Hybrid
and Accord Hybrid. The 100,000-hybrid milestone combines sales of all three
of Honda's hybrid vehicles starting with the first Insight sale in 1999.
Having the nation's best EPA-rated fuel economy in the Honda Insight,
the simple practicality of the Civic Hybrid and the class leading performance
and fuel economy of the Accord Hybrid demonstrates Honda's position as
a hybrid technology leader.


"We are proud to have achieved this accomplishment of selling 100,000
units," said Richard Colliver, Executive Vice-President of American Honda.
"Honda's products deliver on the needs of a concerned automotive
consumer who believes in minimally impacting the environment and conserving
natural resources."


The Civic Hybrid, Accord Hybrid and Insight are powered by Honda's innovative
Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) hybrid technology. The IMA system employs an ultra-compact
electric motor/generator to provide supplemental power to the engine using energy
captured during deceleration or braking.


Honda first introduced U.S. consumers to hybrid technology with the Insight
in December 1999. It launched its second hybrid vehicle, the Civic Hybrid, in
March 2002, followed by the first-ever V6-powered hybrid, the Accord Hybrid,
in December 2004. The company will introduce an all-new version of its popular
Civic Hybrid this fall featuring an advanced new look, class leading features
and enhanced performance.
