Honda Earns the #1 Ranking on AEEE’s “Greenest Vehicles of 2011”

For the Eleventh year in a row, Honda has earned the number one ranking from the

American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) for having the “greenest vehicles of 2011.” The Honda Civic GX earned the number one vehicle in the rankings for the eighth time. The Civic runs on natural gas as well, which is a credit to its’ awesome economical status. Among the other cars that were honored were the Honda Civic Hybrid, Insight, CR-Z Sport and Hybrid and the Odysseyminivan.

Honda has held the number one ranking for eleven years in a row and this is the thirteenth straight year that it has had multiple vehicles that were named in the top 12.

“ The highest level of recognition from ACEEE further illustrates Honda’s long standing commitment to developing vehicles that feature both outstanding fuel economy and low emissions,” said John Mendel, executive vice president of American Honda. “Honda is honored to have its vehicles recognized as among the greanest by an organization dedicated exclusively to environmental efficiency and sustainability.”

The ACEEE ranking system is based on health related pollution impacts and fuel economy. These are both incorporated to make the ranking system to judge on. A score is given to all of the vehicles and that is used to rank the vehicles’ total environmental performance.

Honda lives up to its’ reputation as being a standout when it comes to environmentally sustainable vehicles.
