Default Civic: Four Honda Vehicles Earn Recognition on ACEEE's List of "Greenest" and "Greener" Vehicles of


  • Civic Hybrid, Civic Natural Gas, Insight and Odyssey earn top green scores

  • 16th straight year that multiple Honda vehicles are named to top 12 list


Four Honda vehicles have earned recognition from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) for superior environmental performance, including three that ranked in the top ten among the ACEEE's "greenest vehicles of 2013." In the ACEEE's annual "Green Book® Online" ranking of environmentally responsible vehicles, the Honda Civic Hybrid placed fifth overall and in the top three among gasoline-powered vehicles, while the Civic Natural Gas and the Insight placed ninth and tenth, respectively.


Moreover, the fuel-efficient Odyssey was the highest ranked minivan and was named as a "greener choices of 2014." This is the 16th straight year that multiple Honda vehicles have been named to the top 12.


"Honda has embraced the challenge to bring to market more energy-efficient mobility solutions to reduce CO2 emissions," said Steven Center, vice president of the Environmental Business Development Office at American Honda Motor Co., Inc.*"ACEEE's recognition of Honda's fuel-efficient models over the past 16 years, including a diverse lineup of alternative fuel vehicles, is recognition of the Honda engineers who continue to work towards our goal to leave 'Blue Skies for our Children.'"


The ACEEE ranking system uses a singular measure that incorporates fuel economy and health-related pollution impacts plus global warming and upstream emissions. All vehicles are analyzed and given a "Green Score" which is used to rank each vehicle's total environmental performance, including a list of the 12 "greenest" and 12 "meanest" vehicles along with a ranking of greenest vehicles by segment.


Honda's Environmental Leadership

Honda has a long history of environmental innovation, including the retail introduction of America's first hybrid (1999 Honda Insight), delivery of the first fuel-cell electric vehicle in the U.S. (2002 Honda FCX) and the first gasoline-powered vehicles in the hands of consumers to meet stricter emissions standards, including the 1996 Honda Civic, the first gasoline Low Emissions Vehicle (LEV); the 1998 Honda Accord, the first gasoline Ultra-Low Emissions Vehicle (ULEV); the 2000 Honda Accord, the first gasoline Super Ultra-Low Emissions Vehicle (SULEV) in the hands of consumers; the 2001 Civic Natural Gas, the first vehicle to qualify as an Advanced Technology Partial-Zero Emissions Vehicle (AT-PZEV); and, most recently, the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In, the first Super Ultra-Low Emissions 20 Vehicle (LEV 3/SULEV 20), now available for lease and sale in California and New York state.
