The days when yellow-stickered partial-hybrid vehicles were allowed to travel with a single passenger on designated HOV areas of California state highways are over. As of July 1, yellow-sticker vehicles must meet a higher passenger quota to gain access to these highly coveted driving zones. Luckily, super-ultralow-emission vehicles, such as the natural-gas-powered Honda Civic, get a different white-colored sticker. And, all cars, including the Honda NGV, will continue to have single-passenger access to HOV areas on California state highways for another four years.
Naturally, we're psyched. Especially, as the 2012 Honda Civic NGV comes out this fall, giving California drivers another three-and-a-half years to enjoy the privilege of driving in less congested HOV areas....
We're also a little worried...Will Prius drivers be able to keep their seemingly peaceful cool when forced to share the highway with thousands of maniacs?
Alright, alright, we promise we'll stop gloating and tell you a little more about the forthcoming 2012 Honda Civic NGV. Speaking on its reliance on affordable, eco-friendly natural gas, John Mendel, Executive Vice President, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. says, "...[the new Honda Civic NGV] makes it even more convenient to tap into this desirable and abundant resource."1<
In addition to offering envious long-term cost savings compared to traditional gasoline-powered cars and nearly zero emissions, the 2012 Honda Civic NGV offers a fun, memorable driving experience. Specifically, it's fitted with a 1.8-liter engine, and puts out 110-horsepower and up to 106 lb.-ft. of torque. Inside, the new Honda Civic NGV adds a multi-information display and navigation system.
