All hybrid

Either failure to ask, or a subject off the table perhaps?

This is an interview in Japanese for a Japanese magazine.
Honda makes no diesel for the Japanese market, where they are "de facto prohibited" by emissions standards that do not make apologies for them like in Europe, require the same air-pollutants levels than for gasoline cars.

The interview mentions however the recent development of a small diesel engine for the all important markets such as India in Asia.

PS: Just fyi, there are a few makers which are very invested in diesels abroad (such as the Germans) which sell a few "green-diesels" in Japan. Those are able to meet the emissions standards, but that comes at a price not many are ready to pay for, typically reserved for the foreign-brand luxury buyer.

Buying a foreign car in Japan is pretty much just for novelty only.

Demand for diesel cars from Mazda is high. Mazda delayed sale in North America of diesel Mazda6 and CX-5 due to inability to meet Japanese demand for fuel efficient diesel cars.
Mazda diesel engines meet Japan, Euro and USA emissions and they do it without use of urea treatment. Mazda also has a great six speed automatic transmission that is very efficient. Very impressive results from a small Japanese manufacturer, kudos to Mazda.
Honda has been making and selling diesel in Europe, they have a great engine that Honda management feels will not sell in USA.
