  • Five Powertrains

    Honda offers a broad portfolio of different powertrains, including gasoline, gasoline-electric hybrid, plug-in hybrid, battery electric vehicle and hydrogen fuel cell.

  • Leader in Fuel Economy

    The U.S. EPA ranked American Honda among the top three industry leaders in fuel economy for 35 of the last 37 years.*

    *Based on EPA's annual Light-Duty Automotive Technology, Carbon Dioxide Emissions, and Fuel Economy Trends Report
  • Sustainable Living at University of California, Davis

    The Honda Smart Home on the campus of University of California, Davis is packed to the brim with advanced sensors that track the flow of every electron and every ounce of water throughout the home’s systems – hundreds of channels of data. This information not only advances Honda’s research, but that of our technology, utility and university partners. Learn more about the Honda Smart Home here.

  • Reducing Waste

    A Honda vehicle manufactured in 2001 created 62.8 pounds of waste. By 2011, that number was reduced more than 90% to just 1.8 pounds of waste for each automobile produced.

  • Green Dealer

    Honda’s Green Dealer program was launched in 2012 to help independently owned and operated Honda and Acura automobile dealers in the U.S. quantifiably reduce their environmental impact. The program has expanded to included dealers that sell Honda power equipment and powersports products. Learn more about the program.

  • Design Recyclability

    Honda maintains a minimum of 90% level of design recyclability for all automobiles and a minimum 95% level of design recyclability for all powersports and power equipment products.

Lighting

Lighting accounts for around 25% of a dealership’s total energy consumption. Automatic controls and energy efficient lighting technologies can cut this amount in half.

Heating and Cooling

Heating and cooling a dealership accounts for around 50% of its energy consumption. High performance windows and doors insulate the space from harsh weather, while programmable thermostats, centralized controls and high-efficiency boilers, heat pumps and air conditioning equipment help reduce the total energy required for heating and cooling.

Water

Simply installing water efficient fixtures can cut water consumption by 30-50%. Smart irrigation systems distribute water exactly when and where plants need it with minimal loss to evaporation. A closed loop car wash system recycles water with no wastewater discharge.

Solar PV

Solar PV is the most cost-effective renewable energy option for dealerships today. Some Honda dealers have demonstrated “Electric Grid Neutral” status, meaning 100% of their net electricity consumption is generated on-site annually.
