Starting this year, travelers and commuters in all 50 states will see a natural-gas version of Honda Motor Co.’s new Civic Sedan, the Civic GX, cruising down the streets. That’s right, after selling approximately, 1,500 natural-gas-powered Civics each year (primarily to governmental fleets and some individuals in only four states); Honda will now be offering the environmental friendly GX nationwide.
Another eco-conscious choice Honda consumers are sure to love, the natural-gas-powered Honda Civic GX produces less emissions than it traditional counterparts, and 98 percent of the natural gas used in the U.S. comes from North America.
The tricky thing is that there are only about 1,000 natural gas fueling stations in the U.S. As such, Honda is also releasing a gas-electric hybrid version of the Civic, which promises innovative use of lithium-ion batteries. That said, as demand for natural gas fueling stations rise, it stands to reason that availability will too.
