 Credibility Rating: N/A


1. Honda Achieves Record Monthly Worldwide Auto Production and Record Growth Across Europe

For the month of August, Honda announced that worldwide production experienced a year-on-year increase for the 25th consecutive month (since August 2005). Production in Europe increased 28.1% for the month of August to 13,898 units. For the period of January to August 2007, production in Europe increased by 18.4% to 149,442 units, compared with the same period last year.

According to the ACEA, Honda has achieved the highest growth in Europe of all car manufacturers operating in this market for the period of January to August 2007, with an increase of 15.4% to a record 211, 852 cars compared with the same period in 2006. Honda's market share has increased from 1.7% in 2006 to 2.0% in 2007.

2. Honda at the Frankfurt Motor Show

The Accord Tourer Concept and the new generation of Honda diesel engines, i-DTEC made their world debuts at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show in September. The Honda Accord Tourer Concept provides a strong indication of the design direction of the forthcoming, all-new generation Accord range, set to debut in mid-2008. The all-new Accord range will boast one of the first all-Euro 5-compliant engine line-ups, including a newly developed 2.2-litre i-DTEC next-generation diesel engine. Compared to the current Accord engine line-up, power output will be boosted and emissions and fuel economy significantly improved.

The twin themes of Honda's stand at this year's event were "Sports" and "Environment". On display were the Small Hybrid Sports Concept, Honda's next-generation clean diesel engine, the production Civic Hybrid and the FCX Concept to demonstrate Honda's advanced environmental technologies. The "Sports" area of the stand included Honda's current F1 racing car, the RA107, alongside Civic Type R and Honda S2000 production models.

3. Civic Hybrid Tops VCD Environmental Car Ratings for Second Consecutive Year

The Civic Hybrid has been named Germany's most ecological car by the respected Verkehrsclub Deutschland (VCD: a major transport and environment organisation 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 organisation'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.
