Honda Civic GX CNG is announced for selling in Oklahoma
CNG cars are becoming more and more popular in the USA, because of the lower emissions and extraordinary good fuel economy. Now Honda Civic GX running on compressed natural gas is available for selling in Oklahoma at the American Honda Motor Co., Inc.
"Expanding Honda's Civic GX retail program along with the continued success of fleet sales expresses our commitment to the environment and natural gas vehicle technology," said Elmer Hardy, senior manager of Alternative Fuel Vehicle Sales & Marketing. "Honda seeks market opportunities for the Civic GX where strong natural gas refueling infrastructure exists, and we continue to see its promise as a clean, sustainable, domestically-sourced alternative fuel."
Civic GX was available for selling in 2006 in California. Since then, the sales expanded to New York, Utah and now, Oklahoma.
The state of Oklahoma is the largest natural gas producing state in the U.S. and it has a strong existing CNG station infrastructure. Thats why having a gas powered Honda is a real deal.
The 2010 Civic GX is named "Greenest Vehicle" by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy by meeting both Federal Tier 2-Bin 2 and Inherently Low Emission Vehicle (ILEV) zero evaporative emission certification standards. It goes 24 and 36 miles per gasoline-gallon, city and highway, respectively.
