Default Honda Announces Natural Gas-Powered Civic GX on Sale At Retail Dealers in New York St

Owners can benefit from tax incentives, more than 50 percent lower fuel costs with optional 'Phill' home refueling appliance



Torrance, Calif. - Oct 19 —

American Honda Motor Co., Inc., today announced the availability of the 2007
Honda Civic GX for the New York State market. The Civic GX will be on sale at
five Honda dealers on Long Island and fourteen additional dealers throughout
the state, marking the first time the Civic GX is available for retail sale
outside of California. The Civic GX is the only dedicated natural gas-powered
passenger car available to retail customers in the United States.


The 2007 Civic GX, which achieves an EPA estimated city/highway fuel economy
of 28/39 miles per gasoline-gallon equivalent, carries an MSRP of $24,590. Currently
natural gas is approximately 30 percent less expensive than gasoline when purchased
at a refueling station, and approximately 50 percent cheaper than gasoline when
supplied by a 'Phill', the convenient natural gas home refueling
appliance.


2007 Civic GX buyers are eligible for a Federal tax credit of $4,000 for the
car and an additional $1,000 in tax credits for the purchase and installation
of 'Phill'. Both GX and Phill benefit from the federal tax credits
enacted January 1, 2006, for clean alternative fuel vehicles and fueling infrastructure.
Natural gas fuel use as an alternative to petroleum can help promote air quality
goals and is a lower-cost alternative to gasoline. Primarily a domestically
produced fuel, its price has historically tracked below that of petroleum fuels.


With near-zero emissions, the GX was proclaimed the "Cleanest internal
combustion engine ever tested" by the Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA) when introduced in 1998, and today is the only vehicle certified by EPA
to meet both Federal Tier 2-Bin2 and Inherently Low Emission Vehicle (ILEV)
zero evaporative emissions certification standards. GX meets these strict emission
standards, as natural gas is inherently a clean burning fuel.


Equipped standard with a 5-speed automatic transmission, the 1.8-liter, 4-cylinder
engine delivers 113 horsepower and 109 ft-lbs of torque, both an increase of
more than 10 percent versus the previous generation. The Civic GX offers the
same standard safety features that have earned Civic the Insurance Institute
for Highway Safety's "Top Safety Pick - Gold" Award. Standard safety
features include dual front airbags, side curtain airbags, driver's side impact
airbag, front passenger's side impact airbag, ABS and Honda's Advanced Compatibility
Engineering Body structure TM (ACE TM).


Phill - the home refueling appliance manufactured by FuelMaker Corporation,
provides Civic GX owners a convenient and affordable method of refueling at
home. Phill can be mounted to a garage wall, either indoors or outdoors, and
allows the GX to refuel overnight directly from a homeowner's existing
natural gas supply line.


The natural gas-powered Civic GX is part of Honda's energy strategy to offer
the best available technology for the reduction of air pollution and petroleum
dependence and serves as an enabling technology for hydrogen fuel cell cars
in the future. The 2007 Civic GX will be assembled in East Liberty, Ohio. Destination
and handling charges for all 2007 Honda vehicles are $595.
