When the Civic arrived in North America in 1973 it was heralded for its refined driving dynamics, quality construction and world-class fuel efficiency. The revolutionary CVCC (Compound Vortex Controlled Combustion) engine debuted in Civic and cemented Honda’s place in history as a leader in powertrain innovation. Over the course of ten generations, the Civic has continuously evolved to meet the changing needs of Honda customers around the world, and has consistently set the bar for fuel efficiency, driving performance and design innovation in an affordable compact-class vehicle.
"Honda has a long and storied history of developing reliable, fuel efficient vehicles like the Civic. As we work towards our global target of electrifying two-thirds of our fleet, we'll continue to build on that history by introducing new low-emission alternative fuel vehicles to the Canadian market," said Jean Marc Leclerc, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing. "We're grateful to Canadian Green Car and our loyal customers for their continued recognition and support," Leclerc added.
The Canadian Green Car Award
The Canadian Green Car Award recognizes vehicles that offer impressive “green” attributes combined with strong mass-market appeal, based on the understanding that any product can have a significant environmental impact only if it sells in large numbers.
The overall 2017 Canadian Green Car Award winner will be revealed at 11:30 a.m., Friday, April 7, 2017 at the Green Living Show in the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, North Building.
