2014 Honda Accord Hybrid, Civic Natural Gas Among Greenest Cars

With plenty of vehicles that sit atop several lists and rankings of the most fuel efficient cars and SUVs in the auto industry, Honda has let it be known that they hope to be a leader among green automakers, particularly in an era where there is increased concern both for rising gas prices and the well-being of the environment.

Some of the vehicles that we sell here at Pacific Honda, however, go above and beyond in terms of their green efforts, so we were very happy to see that two of Kelley Blue Book’s “10 Best Green Cars” this year were Honda models: the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid and the 2014 Honda Civic Natural Gas.

“For customers looking to purchase vehicles that have low CO2 emissions, Honda has two great options on’s list—the fun-to-drive, fuel efficient Accord Hybrid and the Civic Natural Gas powered without a drop of gasoline,” said Steven Center, VP of Environmental Business Development at Honda Motor, Co.

 It is true that the Civic Natural Gas doesn’t use the kind of fuel one would purchase at a corner gas station. Rather, it runs on natural gas, which actually runs about 40% cheaper than its gasoline competitor. The Accord Hybrid, meanwhile, boasts incredibly burly MPG numbers and is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+, to boot.

Obviously, Honda engineers care very much about designing and building automobiles that sip gas rather than gulp it, and these two award-winning models are tangible proof of that goal coming to fruition. Honda fancies itself a green brand, and accolades like this certainly help to prove it.
