Civic Hybrid Tops German's VCD Environment Car Ratings for Second Consecutive Year

 Credibility Rating: N/A


Offenbach/Berlin, Germany, August 15, 2007– The Civic Hybrid has been named Germany's most ecological car by the respected Verkehrsclub Deutschland (VCD: a major transport and environment organization in Germany) in its Environmental Car Ratings for 2007-2008.

As part of its rating process the VCD sought out the quietest vehicles with the lowest fuel consumption and the lowest level of emissions. The Civic Hybrid met all the organization’s requirements for environmental compatibility and comfortable driving, and it was highly rated for its outstanding quietness.

This is the second year running that the VCD has chosen the Civic Hybrid as its environmental winner. In 2006 the vehicle beat 350 contenders to secure the coveted first place in the VCD Environmental Car Ratings. In addition, the judges rated the Civic Hybrid as the top car in the compact class.

The Civic Hybrid is the latest embodiment of Honda's long-term commitment to the development of environmentally friendly technologies that are also fun to drive. The vehicle combines a 95 HP petrol engine with a 20 HP electric motor. In addition, the internal combustion engine is switched off when the car comes to a stop. These factors contribute greatly to the reduction of fuel consumption and emissions, particularly in city traffic. With a standard fuel consumption of 4.6 litres per 100 km (51.13 mpg) and emissions of 109 grams of CO2 per km (174.4 g/mile), its performance is significantly within future statutory emission and fuel economy limits.

>Editorial Notes:
- The Toyota Prius was second in the rankings with a 8.3 mark (vs 8.34 for the Civic).
- Civic and Prius were the only compact cars to make it to the top10. The rest of them were all on the mini and super-mini classes.
- There was only one diesel car in the top10 (the tiny VW Polo blue-motion).
