Honda to Offer Natural Gas Civic

Honda Motor Co. says it plans to sell a natural-gas version of its new Civic sedan in all 50 states starting this year. The company currently sells around 1,500 natural-gas Civics each year, mostly to government fleets. Until now, it only sold natural-gas Civics to individual buyers in four states.
Natural gas-burning vehicles produce lower emissions, and 98 percent of the natural gas used in the U.S. comes from North America. But there are only 1,000 natural gas fueling stations in the U.S.
Honda is also releasing a gas-electric hybrid version of the Civic.  Honda introduced the new Civic on Monday at the Detroit auto show. It has a more aerodynamic, chiseled look than the outgoing Civic. The compact sedan goes on sale this spring.
