Honda issues 2007 North American environmental report

Even Honda, considered by many to be the world's greenest automaker, has room to improve when it comes to their environmental footprint. Fortunately, they recognize this fact and have reported their progress in their latest North American Environmental Report, which covers the the period of April 1, 2006 to March 31, 2007. You may be happy to hear that, once again, Honda finds itself in the enviable position of holding the title of America's most fuel-efficient car company "with an industry-leading U.S. corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) for model year 2006 Honda and Acura cars and light trucks of 29.1 miles per gallon." Another peg for Honda to hang their hat on: "100 percent of model year 2007 Honda and Acura automobiles sold in the U.S. met or exceeded both California's and the U.S. EPA's stringent Tier 2 Bin 5 exhaust emissions standards, without the use of fleet averaging."

For you cycle and ATV lovers out there, Honda has eliminated two-stroke engines from their line, leaving the generally more environmentally-friendly four-stroke as the sole engine choice.

These are just a few of the points in the 2007 report that we found interesting. Much more is available in the entire report which can be found at this link (warning: .pdf), so feel free to mosey on over to Honda's own site and take a look.
