For the generation to come
to develop increasingly people-oriented, society-friendly
vehicles, Honda has long emphasized not only the
intrinsic pleasure of driving, but also environment-friendliness
and safety performance. To produce environment-friendly
vehicles, Honda has always played a leading role
in developing technologies for cleaner exhaust emissions.
This time, Honda has focused on another major environmental
issue: reducing CO2 emissions through reduced fuel
consumption. Our objective was to achieve In addition
to calling upon an extensive array of existing technologies
and methods, new technologies have been developed
to achieve fuel consumption at the unheard-of level
of 35km/liter (5-speed manual transmission model.).
Cleaner exhaust emissions and superior recyclability
make the insight the most environment-friendly vehicle
in the world today. We are seeking the standardized
development of this vehicle in Japan, the U.S. and
Europe so we can offer it around the world and achieve
environment-friendliness on a global scale. Suggesting
to societies and people around the world what cars
for the 21st century could be, the insight opens
a new age in driving pleasure.
