Five Honda vehicles have earned recognition from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) for superior environmental performance, including three Honda vehicles that have been named among the ACEEE's "greenest vehicles of 2013."
In the annual ACEEE's "Green Book® Online" ranking of environmentally responsible vehicles, the zero emissions, 100-percent electric Honda Fit EV placed second on the "greenest" list and was joined by two Honda hybrid models - the Insight and Civic Hybrid - on the ACEEE's list of the 12 most environmentally-responsible, "greenest" vehicles available to the public.
The subcompact Honda Fit and the Honda Odyssey minivan were also named as "greener choices of 2013" within their respective classes. This is the 15th straight year that multiple Honda vehicles have been named in the top 12.
"The recognition by ACEEE of Honda's alternative fuel and fuel-efficient vehicles over the past 15 years further validates our commitment to create and deliver more energy-efficient, low emissions mobility solutions for society," said Steven Center, vice president of the Environmental Business Development Office at American Honda Motor Co., Inc.
"Honda's vision for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, which is reflected in our environmental slogan of ‘Blue Skies for our Children,' inspires us to lead and innovate in every aspect of our operations, from our product engineering and manufacturing practices to our upstream sales and service activities."
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.
