Honda Civic Named as Category Winner for the 2018 Canadian Green Car Award

Today, the 2018 Honda Civic was presented with The Canadian Green Car Award for Best Internal Combustion Engine for the second year in a row. Upon its arrival in North America in 1973, the Civic built its reputation for disrupting the status quo by setting the new standard for fuel efficiency in passenger cars. Decades later, the Civic is still setting the bar for fuel efficiency, driving performance, and design, which is why it’s been the best-selling passenger vehicle in Canada for the past 20 years.

"Honda has a long and storied history of developing reliable, fuel efficient vehicles like the Civic. As we work towards our global target of electrifying two-thirds of our global fleet by 2030, we'll continue to build on that history by introducing new low-emission alternative fuel vehicles to the Canadian market," said Jean Marc Leclerc, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Honda Canada Inc. "We're grateful to the Canadian Green Car jurors and our loyal customers for their continued recognition and support," Leclerc added.
