Honda Environmental Leadership
Honda’s diverse portfolio of alternative fuel vehicles has included numerous technologies to improve fuel efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions including the first EV leases in California (1997 Honda EV Plus), the retail introduction of America’s first hybrid (1999 Honda Insight), delivery of the first fuel-cell electric vehicle in the U.S. (2002 Honda FCX), five generations of the Civic Natural Gas (first introduced in 1998) and the first gasoline-powered vehicles in the hands of consumers to meet stricter emissions standards. Honda also has led the Union of Concerned Scientists’ (UCS) rankings of overall vehicle environmental performance since 2000, and a Honda vehicle has been included on the list of America’s greenest vehicles from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) for the past 16 years.

Four Honda Vehicles Earn Recognition on ACEEE’s List of “Greenest” and “Greener” Vehicles of 2014

TORRANCE, Calif., Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire- — Four Honda vehicles have earned recognition from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) for superior environmental performance, including three that ranked in the top ten among the ACEEE’s “greenest vehicles of 2013.” In the ACEEE’s annual “Green Book® Online” ranking of environmentally responsible vehicles, the Honda Civic Hybrid placed fifth overall and in the top three among gasoline-powered vehicles, while the Civic Natural Gas and the Insight placed ninth and tenth, respectively.

Moreover, the fuel-efficient Odyssey was the highest ranked minivan and was named as a “greener choices of 2014.” This is the 16th straight year that multiple Honda vehicles have been named to the top 12.

“Honda has embraced the challenge to bring to market more energy-efficient mobility solutions to reduce CO2 emissions,” said Steven Center, vice president of the Environmental Business Development Office at American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “ACEEE’s recognition of Honda’s fuel-efficient models over the past 16 years, including a diverse lineup of alternative fuel vehicles, is recognition of the Honda engineers who continue to work towards our goal to leave ‘Blue Skies for our Children.’”

The ACEEE ranking system uses a singular measure that incorporates fuel economy and health-related pollution impacts plus global warming and upstream emissions. All vehicles are analyzed and given a “Green Score” which is used to rank each vehicle’s total environmental performance, including a list of the 12 “greenest” and 12 “meanest” vehicles along with a ranking of greenest vehicles by segment.

Honda’s Environmental Leadership
Honda has a long history of environmental innovation, including the retail introduction of America’s first hybrid (1999 Honda Insight), delivery of the first fuel-cell electric vehicle in the U.S. (2002 Honda FCX) and the first gasoline-powered vehicles in the hands of consumers to meet stricter emissions standards, including the 1996 Honda Civic, the first gasoline Low Emissions Vehicle (LEV); the 1998 Honda Accord, the first gasoline Ultra-Low Emissions Vehicle (ULEV); the 2000 Honda Accord, the first gasoline Super Ultra-Low Emissions Vehicle (SULEV) in the hands of consumers; the 2001 Civic Natural Gas, the first vehicle to qualify as an Advanced Technology Partial-Zero Emissions Vehicle (AT-PZEV); and, most recently, the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In, the first Super Ultra-Low Emissions 20 Vehicle (LEV 3/SULEV 20), now available for lease and sale in California and New York state.

Honda on Cutting Edge of V2G Technology

Honda is partnering up with the University of Delaware to pioneer something that seems more futuristic than hydrogen fuel cell technology, something you may never even have heard of yet: vehicle to grid, or V2G.

Basically the idea is similar to that of homes that use solar power; any excess energy that is produced and is not used by the home can be sold to the energy company and the homeowner paid for that energy. With this experimental V2G technology, hybrid/electric cars would plug into a grid that would allow stored up, unused battery energy to go back into the grid and be used to charge other vehicles.

According to this article on Torquenews.com, “Your Accord plug in or FCEV(if it has plug -in capacity) will reverse -flow excess battery storage capacity back into the power grid via a controller developed through the UD’s Center for Carbon Free Integration. You can read about the program here. Assuming that electric car production reaches critical mass in the not too distant future, this energy swap will be critical in maintaining grid-flow during peak energy usage hours. And that’s a big if.

“The partnership project between UD and Honda is on an ‘ experimental’ basis. For the program to be successful, a major manufacturer such as Honda would agree to integrate UD’s board into mass produced EV’s.”

We think this is an incredibly forward-thinking and brave step on Honda’s part. Electric vehicles are just emerging as a popular option among the average car-buyer and this V2G idea is one that has yet to be proven effective, let alone appealing to consumers. But we are excited to see that Honda is taking this step to power vehicles with renewable energy that could potentially be shared by all on the grid.

Honda Accord Earns 2014 “Green Car of the Year” Award

The 2014 Honda Accord series continues to collect awards and accolades, this time at the L.A. Auto Show with the “Green Car of the Year” Award for 2014.

The Green Car Journal bestowed this honor on the Honda Accord.

According to this article, “This year, the prize’s jurors _ among them environmentalists and comedian/car enthusiast Jay Leno  opted to honor an already-popular model that has a gas-electric hybrid version, but also an internal combustion engine that runs on gas.’

Not only is the technology right, but so is the price.

“The 2014 Honda Accord is such a high quality car with the technology and materials that come standard,” said Keith Hofkamp of Sims Honda in Burlington. “People read all about all the features and assume it’s out of their price range. You might be surprised to find out that it starts just over $20,000. The hybrid version is one of the most affordable hybrids on the market!”

If you are an environmentally conscious car buyer, then be sure to stop by Sims Honda, Northwest Honda, or Apple Valley Honda to take the “Green Car of the Year” out for a test drive!

Greenest Car Shopping Areas…Don’t Include Seattle

I thought I knew what to expect as I read this article in honor of Earth Day that listing the locations of America’s greenest car shoppers.

Until I saw the list, that is. Here is the list cities most buying hybrids, electric vehicles, and other green cars:

10. Sacramento—Stockton—Modesto, California

9. Medford—Klamath Falls, Oregon

8. Lima, Ohio

7. Honolulu, Hawaii

6. Washington D.C.

5. Eureka, California

4. Portland, Oregon

3. San Diego, California

2. Monterey—Salinas, California

1. San Francisco—Oakland—San Jose, California

There were a couple things about this list that stood out to me. The first is that Lima, Ohio is eighth on the list (where is Lima, Ohio?). The second, and most surprising to me, is the fact that Seattle (and surrounding area) is not on the list at all (and that Lima, Ohio is). As a Puget Sound driver, it seems crazy to me that Seattle is not on the list because I see so many hybrid vehicles on the road.

The article is right that it makes sense that the list would be full of West Coast cities because it has”…abundant charging stations, special perks for eco-friendly drivers in some western cities and robust infrastructure, the West Coast is well equipped to cater to the needs of eco-conscious drivers.” This seems especially true for Seattle, which is also a city of early adopters and prides itself on its technological know-how.

However, Seattle is still oddly missing from this list.

What do you think? Was this a mistake on the part of Cars.com or is there a reason Seattle didn’t make the list?

Drive a Honda, Use the HOV Lane

A new report stated that Honda makes the most cars that can legally drive in California’s HOV lanes with only a driver in the vehicle.

Why? Because Honda makes the most gosh-darn environmentally friendly vehicles.

According to the California Air Resources Board, Honda makes four vehicles that meet its air quality standards to be eligible to use the carpool lane even when there’s only one occupant. The four vehicles are:

  • The Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid. The 2014 Accord Plug-In Hybrid sedan has a EPA driving range of 570 miles with an EPA rating of 115 MPGe, a standard used to measure the combined efficiency of an electric vehicle.
  • The Honda Civic Natural Gas. The 2012 Civic Natural Gas (CNG) has an EPA of 31 MPG.
  • The Honda Fit EV, which has an EPA rating of 118 MPGe with an EPA driving range of 82 miles.
  • The FCX Clarity, which has a EPA rating of 60 MPEe with an EPA driving range of 240 miles.

This article points out that using the HOV lane in California can shave 30 minutes off your commute where a ten mile drive can often take 30 to 40 minutes. That is DEFINITELY something we can relate to if you’ve ever hit Seattle traffic during rush hour or there is an accident in one of the two through lanes in downtown Seattle. The HOV lane is your friend in the Puget Sound area!

“The average annual five year fuel savings of the Honda Accord Plug-In, Honda Civic CNG and Honda Fit EV is about $7,783.  The fuel savings for the FCX Clarity haven’t been released.”

If you care about the environment, saving money and getting around faster (sounds pretty good right?), then be sure to stop by Apple Valley Honda, Sims Honda, or Northwest Honda dealerships today. Not all of these vehicles may be available in Washington state yet, but no doubt any of them would make a big difference in your life and your budget.

Green Car Journal Names Honda’s ECO Asist as Top 10 Green Technology

Honda’s “Ecological Drive Assist System,” ECO Assist for short, was named to Green Car Journal’s  list of top 10 green technology’s of 2013.

According to this article, “Honda said its ECO Assist technology can help drivers develop driving habits that enhance fuel efficiency by observing the speedometer background’s response to driving practices. Fuel-saving behaviors like smooth acceleration and braking make the meter glow green. Less fuel-efficient driving habits will cause the meter glow blue-green, while aggressive starts and stops that consume extra fuel cause the meter to glow blue.”

Honda hopes that using the ECO Assist technology will help drivers develop more fuel efficient driving habits over the long term.

“Honda is really thinking ahead with the ECO Assist technology,” said John Clough, sales manager at Northwest Honda dealership in Bellingham. “Not only does the vehicle itself have technology that reduces emissions and use less fuel, but it’s also helping people become more fuel efficient in the way they drive. It’s really revolutionary.”

Honda is hoping the visual nature of the technology will be easy to use and really make a difference.

“Honda developed the driver guidance and driver feedback functions of ECO Assist to help drivers improve their fuel economy, and in turn, to also benefit our environment,” said Art St. Cyr, vice president of product planning and logistics at American Honda. “The visual nature of the technology is intended to help drivers improve their efficient driving skills by making it a more fun and rewarding experience.”

Honda is honored to be given this award by the Green Car Journal for its ground breaking technology.

“Honda’s ECO Assist system was selected as a Green Car Technology Award finalist for its innate ability to help drivers enhance their fuel efficiency,” said Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of the Green Car Journal and www.CarsOfChange.com. “In an era of increased demands on environmental performance from consumers and government alike, we wanted to highlight the innovative technologies like ECO Assist that make their incredible achievements possible.”

Honda’s ECO Assist technology is available on the 2013 Honda Civic, 2013 Honda CR-V, and the 2013 Honda Accord.

For your opportunity to check out Honda’s innovative ECO Assist technology or any other of Honda’s amazing technology, stop by Northwest Honda, Sims Honda or Apple Valley Honda today.

 

 

Honda Creates Futuristic Safety Features

Honda is showing the world that it is taking automobile safety to a whole new level with its Automatic Emergency Braking System, Green Wave, and i-ACC Technologies. All of these technologies, when fully implemented, will save the lives of drivers, passengers and pedestrians. In fact, it is estimated that the Automatic Emergency Braking Technology will prevent about 90 percent of all pedestrian fatalities occurring under 37 miles per hour.

 

That is a lot of families who could spared a lot of heartache.

 

Here’s the rundown of these incredible technologies:

 

Honda’s Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB): this technology causes your car to sound an alarm when you are approaching something (or someone) that you could possibly collide with on the front end. Besides sounding the alarm, your Honda will apply the brakes for you if a front-end collision is imminent.

 

“AEB uses input from a windshield-mounted camera and a millimeter-wave radar sensor in the car’s grille. That allows the car to determine the position, speed, and even direction of a pedestrian. The system can also prevent crashes with cars or other solid objects that are at least one meter (three feet) tall.

Automobilemag.com got to test drive the new safety equipment and said the AEB proved very effective at stopping when a pedestrian cut-out was stationary in front of the car and thrown out in front of the car (to simulate someone falling/jumping in front of the vehicle).

 

Green Wave technology: I was confused by this name, thinking it was some sort of environmental technology (and it is in a round-about way), but what it really means is for drivers to ride a wave of green lights. Really.

 

Traffic lights in Japan emit infared transmissions, so Honda’s with the Green Wave technology are equipped with receivers that interpret that information that tell the driver of the car how fast to drive/when to start braking in and effort to promote safety (ie not slamming on your brakes) and better fuel economy.

 

“The first part of the Green Wave recommends a driving speed at which the car will reach the next traffic light when it’s green. In our test Japanese-market Honda Odyssey, this meant we traveled at 26 mph while a control car in the adjacent lane drove at about 35 mph. While the other car had to brake, stop at a simulated red light, and then accelerate again, we breezed through the fake intersection about five seconds after the light turned green. This is designed to promote smoother, more fuel-efficient urban driving, and to reduce the risk of rear-end collisions from frequent stop-and-go traffic. “

 

The article notes that some drivers my be confused why you are driving 25 mph so you can hit the next light when it’s green when the speed limit is 35 mph, but who cares what people think when you roll through that light and they’re still stuck at the light? J If you do get stuck at a light, the Green Wave technology will tell drivers when the light is estimated to turn green so they can get going and avoid getting rear-ended by impatient or inattentive driver behind them.

 

i-ACC Cruise Control with Cut-in Prediction: This technology fixes a big problem (or at least annoyance) for me as a driver. We have all experienced it: you’re driving on the freeway and just set your cruise control only to some jerk…er…neighborly fellow-driver…cut in front of you and go sloooow. Not only do you have to pay attention to make sure you don’t collide with that car, but then you have to reset your cruise control.

 

Well, i-ACC Cruise Control with Cut-in Prediction technology fixes all of this. “Honda’s system, by contrast, guesses when a car in an adjacent lane may move over and adjusts its speed pro-actively.

 

i-ACC uses a camera and radar to track up to six vehicles, and uses information like closing speeds between vehicles to determine which cars are likely to change lanes. “Honda says Cut-In Prediction can react up to five seconds earlier than normal adaptive cruise control, keeping a safer distance between vehicles and also saving fuel by driving more smoothly. The front-facing camera can also be tasked with lane-departure warning and traffic-sign recognition duties. Honda showed a static demo of i-ACC in an Accord sedan, but didn’t allow us to test the system.”
