Honda unveils higher mileage Civic engines
TOKYO - Honda Motor unveiled improvements to its flagship Civics gasoline and hybrid engine systems on Tuesday that will boost mileage and performance on the cars remodeled versions due later this year.

--snip--

Honda also developed a more powerful, fuel-efficient hybrid system that would enable its gasoline-electric vehicles to run solely on the electric motor at low cruising speeds for the first time, like Toyota Motors popular Prius sedan.

The new system features an evolved, three-stage 1.34-litre i-VTEC engine, combined with Hondas IMA (integrated motor assist) technology to achieve a 20 percent jump in output comparable to the performance of a conventional 1.8-litre engine.

1. Yes, but are they offering an employee discount program?
You don't need engineering - just smart marketing! Just ask Detroit! :eyes:
