Honda Commitment to Environmental Responsibility
In 1970, the Clean Air Act was passed by Congress and the EPA was created. The result was tough new standards for auto emissions.
However, even before it was mandatory, Honda made serious pro-active commitments to make more fuel efficient cars with cleaner emission levels.
The Honda Civic was the first car to meet the strict new standards of the Clean Air Act, passing tailpipe emissions tests with no after-treatment of the exhaust. The Civic, featuring revolutionary Compound Vortex Combustion Controlled (CVCC) engine technology, was also at the top of the first-ever list of the EPA's most fuel-efficient vehicles.
This was made possible by early, voluntary initiatives put into place by Honda, and that commitment to environmental responsibility continues today.
