Environment

Honda has always targeted mass-market models in order to have the greatest impact on clean air and fuel economy. To this end, we work to improve existing technologies while using The Power of Dreams philosophy to envision and develop the vehicles of the future.

We believe it is important to invest in the continued advancement of internal combustion engine technology. Honda has introduced a new generation of gasoline engines around the world that provide extremely low emission levels and increased fuel efficiency while still improving driving performance.

Further in pursuit of our goal to improve energy efficiency, we have developed gas-electric hybrid vehicles that achieve ultra-high fuel economy. This includes the Civic Hybrid, the first mass-market car with hybrid power.

Developing vehicles that use sustainable energy sources is perhaps the ultimate direction. Hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles have great potential for the future. Honda has developed the first fuel cell electric vehicle in the world to be certified by both the U.S. EPA and the state of California.
