Honda, Toyota, Nissan and More Collaborating to Increase Fuel Efficiency

Toyota, Honda, Mazda, Nissan, Subaru, Mitsubishi, Suzuki and Daihatsu have announced an alliance that will see a push to improve fuel economy from both gas-powered and diesel-powered engines by as much as 30 percent before the end of the decade.

The newly assembled Research Association of Automotive Internal Combustion Engines put the roughly $20-million project together, with the Japanese government committing to half the cost while the eight manufacturers will chip in the rest.

According to Automotive News, the automakers will team up and share basic research on internal-combustion engines in a bid to cut costs. Eventually, the results of the research will find its way into a production vehicle, although it's unclear just when we'll see the fruits of this partnership on the road.

While the manufacturers have aimed to make improvements by 2020, that goal is part of a larger, 10-year road map, which aims to improve the thermal efficiency of internal combustion engines to 50 percent. Currently, thermal efficiency in gas engines is at 39 percent while diesel is at 42.

The actual targets of improvements will be quite different based on the type of engine. Diesel mills, traditionally a weak point for Japanese manufacturers, will see a focus on reducing NOX emissions and particulate matter, while gas engines will aim for more complete combustion cycles while reducing knock.

Honda Wins Indianapolis 500!

  • Honda-powered Ryan Hunter-Reay claims first Indy victory
  • Second Honda Indy victory in last three years; 10th Honda Indy triumph since 2003
  • Honda powers four of top-six finishers
Honda-powered Ryan Hunter-Reay won Sunday's 98th running of the Indianapolis 500 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, edging Helio Castoneves by six hundredths of a second in the second-closed finish in "500" history.
After running for the first 300 miles at the fastest pace in "500" history, a late-race red flag set up a six-lap shootout to the finish, with Hunter-Reay, Castroneves and the Honda-powered car of Marco Andretti in contention for the victory.
Hunter-Reay and Castroneves traded the lead repeatedly in the final six laps, with Andretti stalking less than a half-second behind.  Charging into the first turn at the start of the final lap, Hunter-Reay swept past Castroneves.  The pair ran nose-to-tail throughout the final three corners, but the Chevrolet-powered machine of Castroneves was unable to find the speed needed to complete the pass.
Hunter-Reay's victory was the first Indy 500 triumph in his IndyCar career, but the third for Honda in the last three years.  Honda's last win was in 2012 with Dario Franchitti.
Ryan Hunter-Reay (#28 Andretti Autosport Honda) 2014 Indianapolis 500 winner:  "This [Indianapolis] is American History, an American tradition. For me, this is more important than [winning] the championship.  I hope the fans loved the finish, 'cause I was on the edge of MY seat!  Thanks to my team, I love driving for these guys and thanks to Honda, we had an awesome engine today."
Art St. Cyr (President, Honda Performance Development) on today's race win:  "What a fantastic day, and an incredible finish.  I hope all the fans loved it as much as we did.  The entire HPD organization worked so hard to achieve this result – not just today, but starting months ago and all through the weeks here at Indianapolis.  Their effort has been outstanding, and today's victory is reward for all of their efforts.  This is our third win in a row, starting at Barber last month and the Grand Prix of Indy two weeks ago, and it feels like we on a roll.  So we're really looking forward to extending that streak to four- and five-in-a-row at the doubleheader in Detroit next week!"

Honda Accord Takes Early Lead as America’s Most Popular Car in 2014 Based on Retail Registrations

  • Accord leads all passenger cars in retail new-vehicle registrations to individual car buyers for first three months of 2014
  • Accord, Civic, CR-V and Odyssey are #1 in segment in retail new-vehicle registrations
Accord is leading in the effort to repeat its 2013 performance as the most popular new car with individual American car buyers. Through the first three months of 2014, four of Honda's five top-selling models – Accord, Civic, CR-V and Odyssey – each led their segments in retail registrations for the first quarter of 2014, according to a Honda analysis of new vehicle registration data from IHS Automotive.
These same four Honda models earned top retail registrations status for the full year in 2013, with Accord earning the title of America's most popular car based on retail registrations, and Civic and CR-V achieving both retail and outright best-selling status in their respective segments.
"We're thrilled to be leading the pack in the first lap around the track in 2014," said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division. "In a business environment marked by intense competition and heavy incentives, we want to thank our Honda customers for the trust they continue to place in our products."
Highlights for the Honda brand in the first quarter of 2014 include:
  • Excluding full-size pickups, the Accord, Civic and CR-V held three of the top five slots – first, third and fourth, respectively – in registrations among individual car buyers in the first quarter of 2014.
  • The Accord, with retail registrations totaling 78,355 units through March, maintained a narrow lead of less than 1,000 units over its nearest competitor. Retail registrations accounted for 98.4 percent of all Accord registrations for the period, according to Honda analysis of IHS Automotive registration data.   
  • Civic retail registrations of 70,677 units led all small cars, beating the closest segment competitor by more than 10,000 units.
  • CR-V retail registrations rose 3.9 percent to 67,773 units compared to the first quarter last year, giving CR-V a more than 7,000-unit lead over the #2 selling vehicle in the segment.
  • Odyssey retail registrations of 27,748 units made it the top choice among retail minivan customers.

2014 Honda Civic, Honda Accord Hybrids Among Most Efficient Sedans

When gas prices started to really hike northward about ten or fifteen years ago, consumers really didn’t know how to react. Many people had purchased their vehicles with little regard to fuel efficiency because at the turn of the century “fuel efficiency” wasn’t something on most buyers’ wish lists.

Honda releases H2O brand bottled water to promote FCX Clarity

 Remember when Hollywood stars Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds) and Joshua Jackson (Fringe) took a Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-Cell into Death Valley and "survived" by drinking water from the car's tailpipe? Honda has taken that idea into movie theaters in Australia. The idea, but not fuel cell water itself. Honda H2O logoHonda has created a bottled water brande called H2O, and it's meant to promote the hydrogen-powered Honda FCX Clarity as part of Honda's "clever thinking" campaign. The headline message, just as it was for Mercedes, is that a hydrogen fuel cell car emits nothing but water vapor, which is actually safe to drink. To give movie fans a hands-on experience, Honda Australia filled a number of Palace Cinemas movie theaters with free disposable bottles of H2O water. Of course, since there are only a handful of FCX Clarity vehicles in the world today and it would take a lot of driving to fill up that many bottles, Honda admits that, "if you're holding a bottle of our specially produced H2O water in your hand right now, you've been drinking plain old spring water. If you want to taste the real thing, you'll have to travel to California, Japan or the UK where the FCX is currently available." Of course, why anyone would want to associate themselves with the unending waste that is bottle water, a product that has not proven itself to be any better than good tap water, is beyond us. But that's what Honda is doing, as you can see in the promotional video about the stunt.

2014 Honda Accord Still Winning Awards

For years, the Honda Accord has been the single best-selling model of car that we’ve sold here at Pacific Honda, but when you build a midsize sedan that not only connects with your customers but also holds up extremely well over time, great sales are almost sure to follow.

Today, the 2014 Honda Accord is holding up that strong tradition by remaining one of the most respected automobiles in the business. Not that the general public isn’t aware of this, but we thought it would be nice to list some of the major accolades that the newest version of the Accord has won over the course of the last several months, just to prove that it isn’t just the name and the legacy selling these vehicles; the sedan itself is still earning awards.

Honda Civic Type R Caught Naked and Frisky

Honda's upcoming Civic Type R is one of our most anticipated models of the next year – and we probably won't even get it in North America. And yet, each time we see it, the five-door just seems so menacing and purposeful. An all-but-undisguised version has just been spotted by our photographers testing on the back roads in Germany. If this signals what to expect, then the project appears to be coming along nicely.

Compared to the concept shown at the Geneva Motor Show, this prototype looks even meaner. Check out those big, blistered front fender extensions, taller wing, deeply sculpted front air dam and 10-spoke gold wheels. The Type R certainly certainly isn't hiding its performance intentions, and it has no reason to. Under the hood, we know it packs Honda's new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder pumping out 276 horsepower, which is likely connected to a six-speed manual.

Now, if only Honda could find some way to get this machine across The Pond and into the our hot little hands. There has already been an online petition begging the Japanese automaker to find a way, and after recently enjoying an all-too-brief prototype drive, we're ready to sign up.

American Honda Sales Rise 1.1 Percent in April

  • CR-V sets new April record as Honda core models anchor on-going retail sales success
  • Acura light trucks set April record, continue unprecedented growth in 2014
American Honda Motor Co., Inc. today reported April 2014 Honda and Acura vehicle sales of 132,456 units—an overall increase of 1.1 percent (-2.8 percent based on the Daily Selling Rate, or DSR*) compared to April 2013. The Honda Division also saw an increase of 1.1 percent with April sales of 118,334. Acura division gained 1.6 percent on April sales of 14,122, with light trucks increasing 35.9 percent for the month on sales of 9,536 units.  Year to date American Honda sales reached 457,810.
In the first four months of 2014, Honda continued its retail sales momentum despite an environment punctuated by a handful of companies applying heavy incentives and a significant reliance on fleet sales. Honda enjoyed steady growth in April with CR-V setting a new sales record, and Accord and Civic enjoying gains.
  • CR-V recorded sales of 28,485, up 7.4 percent for a new April record
  • Accord posted April sales of 34,124, an increase of 1.7 percent
  • Civic was up 4.4 percent to 27,611 units vs. April 2013
"After a few truly chilling winter months, it's great to see the warmer spring weather begin to liberate our customers and spark record sales of CR-V and solid sales results across the lineup," said Jeff Conrad, Honda division senior vice president and general manager. "More than any other automaker our success is based on one customer at a time going down to their Honda dealer to purchase a new vehicle, and in April, we see the power of our retail sales strategy at work."
Acura light trucks continue to sell well above last year's pace, led by the hot-selling MDX and RDX. However, vehicle supply is becoming a factor as Acura begins winding down production of TSX and TL models in preparation for the new TLX models, which are scheduled to hit the ground later this year.
  • Acura division sales increased 1.6 percent vs. 2013 with 14,122 units sold in April
  • Acura trucks set a new April sales record with an increase of 35.9 percent on sales of 9,536
  • MDX posted another major increase with sales up 80 percent in April
  • RDX sales increased for an unprecedented 24th month in a row, climbing 6.3 percent
"With RDX posting two solid years of continuous growth and MDX sustaining its hot sales pace, our Acura SUVs continue to set the standard in the luxury light truck segment," said Mike Accavitti, Acura division senior vice president and general manager. "In a few short months, we will unleash the all-new 2015 Acura TLX to reestablish Acura's reputation for thrilling luxury performance sedans and establish the Acura brand as a force to be reckoned with in the luxury segment."
*The daily selling rate (DSR) is calculated with 26 days for April 2014 and 25 days for April 2013. Year-to-date, the DSR is calculated with 101 days for 2014 and 101 days for 2013. All other percentages in release are unadjusted; see table for adjusted DSR figures.

2015 Honda Fit Makes a Great First New Car

When most people get their first cars, they’re very often some inexpensive used clunkers chosen only because the price tags were low enough for our teenage bank accounts to afford them. With adulthood, however, comes a “real” job and therefore a reasonable amount of income, so there really is no better time for someone to buy his or her first new automobile than their late teens or early 20s.

If that’s you (or your children), and you’re having a hard time deciding which vehicle could work the best, allow us to suggest the 2015 Honda Fit, which is in our opinion the best-all around starter car in the Honda lineup.

Zipcar, Honda Announce OneWay Carsharing With 2015 Fit

Zipcar has been around for over a dozen years, and now shares more than 10,000 cars on a short-term basis with 850,000 members around the world. But there's been one thing missing from the carsharing giant's quiver of options: the one-way rental. That changes today. For a select few in Boston, anyway.

"OneWay's Boston launch is so soft that Zipcar says it's not even sure how much it will charge."
Zipcar has announced a new one-way carsharing option called (annoyingly) ONE>WAY. This new program soft launches in Boston today, and it's so soft that Zipcar says it's not even sure how much it will charge drivers who use the new service. What we do know is that OneWay exclusively uses the 2015 Honda Fit and will allow drivers to rent by the half hour as they pick up and drop off in two different locations. The standard Zipcar model requires the cars to be brought back to the original location and has a one-hour minimum. At least one membership fee will cover both standard Zipcar and Zipcar OneWay.

The introduction of shorter-term, one-way rental may sound a bit like Car2go, the successful carsharing program started by Daimler. Zipcar representatives told AutoblogGreen that it did develop OneWay in response to member demand and that there are two main differences between the two carsharing services. First, since OneWay still uses the traditional reserved-for-Zipcar parking spot method (new ones will be established for OneWay), there will always be a guaranteed space when you arrive at your destination. Second, the Fit has a lot roomier than the Smart ForTwo used by Car2go. To see this point in action, check out the four happy hipsters in Zipcar's new ad for OneWay below.

There are currently other Fits in Zipcar fleets in other cities, but the specially branded vehicles in the Boston trial program will need to be used with the OneWay vehicles. That means, for now at least, that users will specify a pick-up and drop-off location before renting the vehicle, said Kaye Ceille, the president of Zipcar. The 30-minute minimum might also someday be changed, depending on user feedback. There's a lot up in the air right now, but Zipcar did say that despite the fact that OneWay is intended for short trips and has reserved parking, the Fit EV will not be involved. That car simply doesn't offer the cargo flexibility that the standard Fit does and some of the reserved parking spots will be on the street, where putting in a charging station isn't feasible.

Ceille told AutoblogGreen that, "As we learn the complexity or ease [of OneWay] over the next few months, that will determine our roll-out schedule." She admitted it would be to Zipcar's benefit to get OneWay rolling in every market, but it's just to early to know for sure when that might happen. The current plan is to have OneWay fully functional for all Boston-are Zipsters by the fall. For more information, read the press release below.

Zipcar Announces New ONE>WAY Service

Featuring Spacious & Versatile 2015 Honda Fit

New service blends convenience of one-way trips with reliability of parking in a reserved spot at the drop-off location

BOSTON - May 2, 2014 – Zipcar, Inc. today announced "ONE>WAY", a new service that will enable members to take point-to-point trips within cities, and to and from select airport locations. The new service, currently being tested and slated to launch in select markets later this year, will exclusively feature the Honda Fit, the fun-to-drive, fuel-efficient and versatile subcompact that is small enough to zip in and around cities, yet large enough to comfortably fit up to five people and their gear. Honda's role in the Zipcar ONE>WAY service continues its long legacy in car sharing dating back to the introduction of its Intelligent Community Vehicle System (ICVS) concept in 1994.

The new Zipcar ONE>WAY service will enable members to reserve and pick up a Honda Fit Zipcar at a designated location and drop it off at another with a guaranteed parking spot. Zipcar's new service not only benefits members through increased flexibility, but also helps reduce congestion in cities as members are not circling the block searching for parking. Zipcar ONE>WAY, combined with the company's industry-leading round-trip model, will offer members the most comprehensive mobility option available.

"Our ONE>WAY service blends the best of Zipcar – guaranteed parking and advance reservations – with the best of the one-way model – spontaneity and the freedom to leave a car in a different location," said Zipcar President Kaye Ceille. "Zipcar ONE>WAY, combined with our global fleet of more than 10,000 vehicles with 30 different makes and models, offers members the most options, the most flexibility and the largest global network of any mobility provider."

The all-new 2015 Honda Fit has become even more of a standout choice in the subcompact segment with its small-on-the-outside exterior and big-on-the-inside interior passenger and cargo space. Available through Zipcar ONE>WAY later this year, the 2015 Fit features a fresh and modern design, a powerful and efficient engine, plus a highly versatile interior loaded with standard equipment essential for urban driving like a rearview camera and Bluetooth® hands-free connectivity. The surprisingly roomy 2015 Fit interior provides an impressive 95.7 cubic feet of passenger volume with comfortable seating for up to five passengers with ample storage space behind the rear seats.

For enhanced versatility, the Fit is equipped with the Honda-exclusive 60/40 split rear Magic Seat® which offers multiple seating and cargo-carrying configurations to accommodate long items up to eight feet long or tall items like plants. With its one-motion dive-down functionality, it can fold flat into the floor to provide nearly 53 cu-ft. of rear cargo volume. That's more cargo area than the average SUV, offering enough space to allow for 10 carry-on sized suitcases. On top of its superior cargo capabilities, the 2015 Fit is a class leader in fuel efficiency with an EPA fuel-economy rating1 of 33/41/36 for the LX trim with a new Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).

"Created for urban mobility, the Fit subcompact and Zipcar ONE>WAY service will offer Zipsters the best of sustainable city transportation in a functional, stylish and fuel efficient package," said Steven Center, vice president of the Environmental Business Development Office at American Honda. "Honda has long been involved in the car sharing industry, and we believe that this program will help reduce emissions and city congestion while providing a new level of freedom and convenience to customers."

"This combination of roominess, flexibility and fuel efficiency makes the Fit a perfect fit for our One>Way service," continued Ceille. "With this initiative, we build on a long and successful relationship with Honda, whose leadership in sustainability and engagement with the car sharing industry during the past decade has helped accelerate the growth of the car sharing category."

For more than a decade members have trusted Zipcar for a variety of round-trips, from the ordinary (grocery store runs) to the extraordinary (weddings). With the launch of Zipcar ONE>WAY, members will soon have more flexibility in the types of trips they can take. More information on the partnership and Zipcar ONE>WAY is available via the web at
