The world's basic car is now driving the hybrid world
Advanced engineering in the most familiar of Honda cars. Through the years, Honda has invested some of its most sophisticated technologies in the popular Civic. In the 1975 model year, in response to the federal Clean Air Act in the U.S., the Civic series was expanded to include a line of cars with a new CVCC (Compound Vortex-Controlled Combustion) engine. The CVCC-engine cars were the world's first to clear the air pollution regulations at the time with their excellent fuel-efficiency and low emissions. Now Honda has refined the Civic with its original hybrid system, and is proud to introduce the Civic Hybrid prototype. In addition to its lively performance, the Civic Hybrid scores highly for fuel-economy and clean emissions. Again, the average car buyer can reap the benefits of Honda's premier engineering as the Civic Hybrid launches into the new era of the hybrid car.
