The Financial Express reports the vehicles that will be offered in the U.S. with the proposed diesel engine are the Honda Odyssey minivan and Acura MDX SUV. The vehicles will also be offered in Japan. According to Honda president Takeo Fukui, there are no plans for hybrid systems for light trucks, and it is believed they will be more fuel efficient with diesel engines. The engines might also make their way into cars, if they prove popular in the light duty truck market.
