SolarCity and Honda Announce $50 Million Commitment to Provide Solar Power to Honda and Acura Customers and Dealerships

Today, at the SXSW Eco conference in Austin, TX, SolarCity® (Nasdaq: SCTY) and Honda have renewed their partnership with a new fund expected to finance $50 million in solar projects. The new commitment will make solar power more affordable and available to Honda and Acura customers and dealerships in the U.S. The companies have completed or initiated a range of solar projects for homeowners, dealerships and corporate facilities that total more than 12.5 MW of solar generation capacity. The two companies have already brought enough solar capacity online to offset more than 400 million pounds of CO2 over a 30-year lifecyclei. The $50 million fund is a follow-up to a $65 million fund the companies created in 2013.

The partnership, which is aimed at addressing air pollution and global climate change by reducing CO2 emissions and particulate emissions from home, business and transportation energy use, covers the cost of solar equipment and installation and makes it possible for many homeowners to pay less for solar electricity than they pay for electricity from utilities, with insurance, repairs and monitoring service included.ii

Envisioning a future in which personal mobility products will be powered in large part by renewable energy, the two companies have begun implementing co-marketing programs that specifically encourage owners of either solar powered homes or plug-in electric vehicles to adopt the complementary product. The companies have also collaborated on advanced projects that demonstrate the full potential of distributed renewables combined with plug-in electric vehicles, including Honda Smart Home US. SolarCity installed the high-efficiency and cost-effective solar system used in this project.

SolarCity has developed a proprietary system that has greatly simplified the process by which homeowners can go solar. From an initial phone call or Web consultation, SolarCity can quickly assess whether a homeowner is a good candidate for solar, and can design a custom solar system to meet a customer’s specific energy needs. Honda and Acura customers and dealers interested in solar can find more information at www.hondasolarcity.com.

Executive Quotes
“The first phase of this partnership has proven that Honda drivers have a high affinity for solar power, while owners of solar-powered homes have a high affinity for Honda products,” said Steven Center, Vice President of the Environmental Business Development Office of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “As we look toward a future in which renewable energy will be an increasingly pervasive fuel source for personal mobility products, we are excited about capitalizing on the technological, environmental and market opportunities available through partnerships of this nature.”

“Our partnership with Honda is creating local jobs and helping to address air pollution, water pollution and climate change,” said SolarCity CEO Lyndon Rive. “Honda’s commitment is making a difference for the economy and the environment.”

About Honda
Based on its vision of “Blue Skies for our Children,” Honda is working to advance technologies that address society’s environmental and energy concerns through a diverse lineup of products and technologies, including more fuel-efficient gasoline engines, natural gas, hybrids, plug-in hybrids, battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs).

Today, Honda is targeting a 30-percent reduction in CO2 emissions from its U.S. automobile product lineup by 2020, compared to 2000 levels. In pursuit of its vision for a zero-carbon future, the company is advancing electromotive technologies in many forms, and will introduce an advanced new fuel cell electric car in 2015.

In keeping with its commitment to produce vehicles with the lowest CO2 emissions at plants with the smallest environmental footprint, the company is broadly addressing emissions, energy, water use and waste in all phases of its products life cycles. In the manufacturing realm, this includes a 95 percent reduction in waste sent to landfills in North America. Honda is working to extend its “green factory” and “green purchasing” initiatives to its more than 650 parts suppliers in North America and is also pursuing more environmentally responsible business practices among its U.S. dealers through the company’s “Green Dealer” program.

Honda is also demonstrating its vision for zero-carbon mobility and living with the creation of the Honda Smart Home US, in Davis, California, which was opened in early 2014 and is capable of producing more energy on-site from renewable sources than it consumes annually, including enough energy to power a Honda Fit EV for daily commuting.

New Acura and Honda Products Fuel Surge in September Automobile Sales

  • Hot new Acura TLX powers an 18.8 percent division increase with 3,884 September sales
  • Acura RDX posted its best-ever September with sales of 3,230, rising 6.9 percent for the month and helping Acura trucks to its best September on record
  • New Honda Fit achieves best September ever on sales of 6,628 units, up 66.5 percent
  • Honda CR-V also sets new September record, rising 10.6 percent on sales of 23,722

American Honda Motor Co., Inc. today reported September 2014 Honda and Acura vehicle sales of 118,223 units, an increase of 12.0 percent versus September of last year. The Honda division had its best September since 2007 with sales of 104,391 vehicles, while Acura posted sales of 13,832 units in the same period. Acura trucks posted its best-ever September, rising 6.8 percent vs. 2013. Year-to-date total American Honda sales reached 1,160,605 vehicles.

Honda
The Honda brand showed considerable strength across its broad lineup in September, with nearly every model gaining for the month and two models—Fit and CR-V—setting new September records. Overall, the Honda brand was up 11.2 percent, the division’s best post-recession September – since 2007.

  • The outgoing 2014 CR-V enjoyed its best-ever September, with sales of 23,722 yielding a 10.6 percent increase for the month. The new 2015 CR-V, featuring enhanced styling, a new powertrain and a host of safety features, went on-sale today.
  • The new 2015 Honda Fit, now produced in North America, surpassed its popular predecessor by posting a new September record with sales of 6,628, an increase of 66.5 percent over the same period in 2013.
  • Honda Accord gained sharply for the ninth straight month, rising 30.9 percent on sales of 32,956 units.
  • Odyssey also showed strength with an increase of 13.7 percent, posting sales of 8,769 units in September.

“With all core Honda models now made in North America the Honda brand is continuing to gain strength with American car buyers,” said Jeff Conrad, Honda division senior vice president and general manager. “And with the redesigned 2015 Honda CR-V going on sale today we expect our momentum to continue to grow as step-by-step we reinforce our light truck lineup.”

Acura
Less than two months on the market and without full supply of the three-model lineup at dealerships, the all-new 2015 Acura TLX luxury performance sedan sparked an 18.8 percent sales surge for the luxury brand, boosting division sales to 13,832 for September over the same month in 2013.  TLX sales were second only to the Acura MDX within the entire division, followed by another record performance by the RDX, with the luxury SUVs pushing Acura truck sales to a new September record.

  • The hot-selling new TLX posted sales of 3,884 in September to become Acura’s best-selling sedan and second best-selling vehicle, already approaching segment leaders in only its first full month on the market.
  • ILX sales were also up in September, adding 7.4 percent with sales of 1,464 units.
  • Acura truck sales set a new September record, rising 6.8 percent on sales of 8,097 vehicles.
  • Acura’s RDX rose 6.9 percent to post its best-ever September for the brand on sales of 3,230 units.
  • MDX sales increased 7.2 percent with 4,864 units sold in September, continuing to solidify its place as the best-selling three-row luxury SUV in America.

“With the MDX and RDX as the best one-two punch in the luxury SUV segment, the TLX is proving to be the knockout punch we’ve been looking for in the luxury sedan arena,” said Mike Accavitti, Acura division senior vice president and general manager. “The TLX is attracting so much attention online and showroom traffic at our dealers that we don’t yet know the car’s true potential.”

Boldly Restyled and Significantly Enhanced 2015 Honda CR-V Gets New Powertrain, Advanced Features and New Premium Touring Trim

America’s bestselling SUV for the past decade1, the CR-V raises the bar for 2015 with a major update that increases powertrain performance, fuel efficiency, safety performance, value and fun

Launching at Honda dealerships nationwide on October 1, 2014, the new 2015 Honda CR-V receives the most significant mid-model cycle refresh in its history, with a new direct-injected Earth Dreams Technology™ i-VTEC® engine and continuously variable transmission (CVT), a new suite of Honda Sensing™ safety and driver assistive features, significantly enhanced exterior and interior styling, a long list of new standard and available features and a new premium Touring trim.

Starting with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $23,3202, the 2015 CR-V has increased EPA fuel economy ratings of 27/34/29 mpg3 (city/highway/combined) for front-wheel-drive models and 26/33/28 mpg3 for Real Time AWD models, both increasing +4/+3/+3 mpg over 2014 models.

New for the 2015 CR-V:

  • More efficient direct-injected engine with torque up 11 percent

  • Bold new exterior design plus chassis, braking system and sound isolation improvements

A new top-of-the-line Touring trim includes the first Honda application of two advanced driver-assistive technologies, Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) and Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), and the first CR-V adoption of Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). These systems, plus Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Honda LaneWatch™ are part of the new Honda Sensing™ suite of safety and driver assistive technologies that, together with other high-end features, such as a power tailgate, bring a new level of sophistication to America’s top-selling SUV1.

The new lighter-weight engine is mated to a new continuously variable transmission (CVT) with G-design Shift that provides smooth, seamless ratio changes and contributes to increased EPA fuel economy ratings of 27/34/29 mpg3(city/highway/combined) for front-wheel-drive models and 26/33/28 mpg3 for the Real Time AWD models.

Chassis
An updated suspension design, and features such as Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®)15 and Motion-Adaptive Electric Power Steering (EPS) all contribute to the 2015 CR-V’s quality driving experience, which is enhanced further on the EX and above trims with wider front and rear track dimensions due to wider wheels (+0.5 inches). The CR-V uses front MacPherson strut and rear multi-link suspension systems that benefit from tuning changes. The rear multi-link system helps maximize rear seating and cargo space while providing stable and comfortable handling and ride quality. Newly revised shock absorber tuning helps deliver a refined driving feel.

Safety and Driver-Assistive Technology
As with all Honda vehicles, safety is a primary focus, starting with the CR-V’s next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure that helps make the CR-V highly effective at absorbing and dispersing the energy of a frontal collision crash. Overall, the body receives more than 60 changes to improve stiffness and collision performance, and the 2015 CR-V is targeted to achieve top safety ratings, including a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and a NCAP 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the NHTSA. Standard safety equipment on all models include Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) electronic stability control system, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Brake Assist, frontal airbags, side-curtain airbags, SmartVent® front-side airbags, and a front seat design that can help reduce the severity of neck injury in the event of a rear collision. The newly available Honda Sensing™ suite of safety and driver assistive features includes Honda LaneWatch™, Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW). These systems benefit from the adoption of new sensor fusion technology that integrates the capabilities of a windshield-mounted monocular camera and millimeter wave radar to provide enhanced sensing with ability to identify and anticipate multiple collision scenarios, including a pedestrian collision, and initiate warnings and, in some cases, emergency braking.

Warranty
The 2015 Honda CR-V is covered by a comprehensive 3-year/36,000 mile new vehicle limited warranty and a 5-year/60,000 mile powertrain limited warranty. Additional benefits of ownership include Honda Roadside Assistance, which provides free 24-hour roadside assistance during the 3-year/36,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty term.

Toyota Announces Voluntary Recall of Certain Tacoma Pickup Trucks for Rear Leaf Springs

Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc., today announced that it has advised the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of plans to conduct a voluntary safety recall of approximately 690,000  Model Year 2005-2011 Tacoma 4×4 and Tacoma Pre-Runner pickup trucks.

The involved vehicles’ rear suspension system contains leaf springs that are constructed of either three or four leaves.  There is a possibility that a leaf could fracture due to stress and corrosion.  If this occurs and the vehicle continues to be operated, the broken leaf could move out of position and contact surrounding components, including the fuel tank. If the broken leaf contacts the fuel tank repeatedly, it could puncture the tank and cause a fuel leak.  In the presence of an ignition source, this could result in a fire.

Toyota is not aware of any fires, crashes, injuries or fatalities associated with this condition.

Toyota Announces Recall of Certain Avalon, Camry, Highlander, Sienna, and Lexus RX Vehicles

Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc., today announced plans to conduct a voluntary safety recall of approximately 20,000 Model Year 2014 Avalon, Camry, Highlander, Sienna, and Model Year 2015 Lexus RX vehicles equipped with the 2GR-FE engine.

In the involved vehicles, the end cap on the right-hand fuel delivery pipe in the engine compartment could have been insufficiently welded during manufacturing at the supplier.  In this condition, fuel could leak from the fuel delivery pipe and, in the presence of an ignition source, could increase the risk of a vehicle fire.

Toyota is not aware of any fires, crashes, injuries or fatalities caused by this condition.

Owners of the vehicles involved will receive a notification by first class mail. Toyota and Lexus dealers will inspect the fuel delivery pipe and if it was produced at the involved supplier, replace it with a new one.

New 40th Anniversary Gold Wing Highlights 2015 Honda Motorcycle Additions

While Apple Valley Honda, Northwest Honda, and Sims Honda don’t have motorcycles, the Gold Wing is iconic.

Honda continues the new introductions to its 2015 motorcycle line with today’s announcement of several cruiser, touring and dual-sport models. The 2015 model year marks the 40th anniversary of the Gold Wing® and we are celebrating with a commemorative 40th Anniversary Edition.

“For 2015 we are proud to be celebrating 40 years of the Gold Wing. This model means so much to our company and our customers,” said Lee Edmunds, Manager of Motorcycle Marketing Communications at American Honda. “When this model was introduced in 1975 it revolutionized what touring in America could be. It was our customers’ passion for adventure and traveling the open road that really defined the Gold Wing and how it is used today.”

40 YEAR GOLD WING HERITAGE
The bike that started it all, the Honda Gold Wing maintains its legacy as the original touring motorcycle, with the commemorative 2015 GL1800 40th Anniversary Edition Gold Wing.

2015 Honda CR-V Raises Bar on “Standard Feature Value”

While many of the specifications of the 2015 Honda CR-V have not been release quite yet (including price, etc), Honda has unveiled photos and a couple tantalizing details.

According to this article at Torque.com, “Honda has opted to make a handful of measurable cosmetic and tech changes to CR-V…” We also expect improvements in gas mileage and what some considered to be a stiff ride for the previous model.

Supporting Small Businesses and Supplier Diversity 
Honda desires to establish long-term relationships with suppliers based on trust and mutual benefit, and with a commitment to diversity. Working alongside minority supplier development councils and the Small Business Administration, diversity workshops educate potential ethnic minority and women-owned suppliers on Honda business operations. The workshops facilitate strategic alliances and joint ventures, and assist with loan and venture capitalization, empowerment programs and other available resources. In June, 2014 Honda joined 25 corporations for a discussion with President Obama about strengthening small business suppliers by supporting initiatives like increasing working capital, so they can grow their businesses and hire more workers.
