Default Three Honda Vehicles Earn Highest Rating in EPA's 2005 Fuel Economy Guide

Torrance, Calif. - Oct 08 —

The Honda Odyssey, Civic Hybrid and
Insight achieved the highest fuel economy in their respective classes in the
2005 Fuel Economy Guide published yesterday by the U.S. Department of Energy
(DOE), the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy and the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA).

The all-new, completely redesigned 2005 Honda Odyssey has taken top honors
in fuel economy in the minivan segment. The Odyssey offers an EPA fuel economy
rating of 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway, and features a technologically advanced
variable cylinder management (VCM) cylinder deactivation technology that allows
three of the vehicles six cylinders to deactivate while cruising to further
increase fuel efficiency.

Leading the compact car segment is the 2005 Civic Hybrid with an EPA fuel economy
rating of 48/47 mpg city/highway with a continuously variable automatic transmission
(CVT) and a rating of 46/51 mpg city/highway with a manual transmission. The
Civic Hybrid, introduced as Honda's second hybrid vehicle in 2002, uses
an Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) system with a compact electric motor and a
lightweight gasoline engine for maximum fuel efficiency.

The Honda Insight was named the most fuel-efficient vehicle in the two-seater
class while remaining the overall fuel efficiency leader in America. The Insight
has earned this top honor every year since its introduction in 1999 as the first
gasoline-electric hybrid vehicle sold in the United States. The manual transmission
Insight maintains its status as the most fuel-efficient vehicle sold in America
by earning an EPA rating of 61 mpg city and 66 mpg highway. When equipped with
a continuously variable transmission, the Insight earns an EPA fuel economy
rating of 57 mpg city and 56 mpg highway.
