Looking for an environmentally responsible car that fits your budget and your lifestyle? Honda was the very first auto manufacturer to offer a mass-production hybrid model for the U.S. and Europe. Honda offers an exciting alternative-fuel vehicle, the Civic GX NGV.
Nothing but clean natural gas powers the Civic GX, making it nearly free of emissions.
The Honda Civic GX is touted as the earth’s cleanest certified internal combustion engine vehicle with an EPA-estimated city/highway fuel economy of 28/39 miles per gasoline-gallon equivalent. With 113 horsepower and 109 ft-lbs of torque under the hood, the Honda Civic GX is the perfect choice for consumers. In fact, the Civic GX is the only vehicle certified by the EPA to meet both Federal Tier 2-Bin 2 and Inherently Low Emission Vehicle (ILEV) zero evaporative emission certification standards.
The Honda Civic is one of the “greenest” vehicles currently in production and driving one will save consumers money as well as save the planet.
Currently natural gas is approximately 30 percent less expensive than gasoline when purchased at a refueling station, and approximately 50 percent cheaper than gasoline when supplied by a ‘Phill’, the convenient natural gas home refueling appliance.
Honda Civic GX buyers are eligible for a Federal tax credit of $4,000 for the car and an additional $1,000 in tax credits for the purchase and installation of ‘Phill’. Both GX and Phill benefit from the federal tax credits enacted January 1, 2006, for clean alternative fuel vehicles and fueling infrastructure. Natural gas fuel use as an alternative to petroleum can help promote air quality goals and is a lower-cost alternative to gasoline. Primarily a domestically produced fuel, its price has historically tracked below that of petroleum fuels.
Phill – the home refueling appliance manufactured by FuelMaker Corporation, provides Civic GX owners a convenient and affordable method of refueling at home. Phill can be mounted to a garage wall, either indoors or outdoors, and allows the GX to refuel overnight directly from a homeowner’s existing natural gas supply line.
