Default Civic: Honda Civic GX Natural Gas Car Earns Top Spot on ACEEE's "Greenest Vehicles of 2009" List

Recognizing Honda's dedication to fuel efficient and alternative fuel technologies, three Honda vehicles earned recognition from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) as the "greenest vehicles of 2009" with the Civic GX natural gas car taking the title of the greenest vehicle for the sixth consecutive year. In the 12th annual ACEEE's "Green Book® Online" ranking of environmentally responsible vehicles (available at www.greenercars.org), the natural gas-powered Civic GX ranked first with the gasoline Fit and Civic Hybrid joining the list of the 12 most environment-friendly vehicles available to the public. This is the ninth year in a row that a Honda vehicle received the number one ranking.


"Honda is proud to receive this recognition from ACEEE and will continue to look for new ways to reduce our environmental impact," said Dan Bonawitz, vice president of Corporate Planning and Logistics for American Honda. "As part of our philosophy to be a company that society wants to exist, Honda is deeply committed to developing a wide range of both fuel-efficient and alternative fuel vehicles available to the public."


Using a singular measure that incorporates fuel economy, health-related pollution impacts and global warming emissions, all vehicles are analyzed and given a "Green Score." This score is used in ACEEE's ranking system, resulting in a ranking of each vehicle's total environmental performance, including a list of the 12 "greenest" and 12 "meanest" vehicles. The Civic GX, first introduced in 1998, is the cleanest internal combustion vehicle certified by the EPA*, and is 90% cleaner than the average gasoline-powered car on the road today.


Honda has a long history of environmental leadership including the introduction of America's first hybrid, the Honda Insight, delivery of the first fuel cell vehicle in the U.S., and the first vehicles to meet stricter emissions standards, including:



  • The first gasoline Low Emissions Vehicle (LEV), the 1996 Honda Civic.

  • The first gasoline Ultra-Low Emissions vehicle (ULEV), the 1998 Honda Accord.

  • The first gasoline Super Ultra-Low Emissions Vehicle (SULEV), the 2000 Honda Accord.

  • The first Advanced Technology Partial-Zero Emissions Vehicle (AT-PZEV), the 2001 Civic GX natural gas vehicle.


The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy is a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing energy efficiency as a means of promoting both economic prosperity and environmental protection.


*EPA Tier-2, Bin-2 and ILEV certification as of May 2008
