Honda is turning to natural gas vehicles as another option of alternative fuel to offer to consumers. Compressed natural gas, or CNG, has been used in a variety of commercial vehicles, but never hit it off with passenger cars.
The automaker is shifting its focus to developing compressed natural gas, or CNG, cars in the U.S. Both commuters and drivers wanting an efficient driving experience will benefit from this natural solution. CNG sells for half as much as gasoline, making Honda’s launch of a natural gas-fueled Civic a very smart move with the current high gas prices.
LA Times reports that “natural gas vehicles can reduce smog-forming emissions of carbon monoxide 70% and produce 20% less greenhouse gas emissions than gasoline powered
The updated Civic will be able to drive 220 miles between fuel stops, compared with about 80 miles with a typical electric car. The price tag on the new Civic starts at $26,640, about $4,000 more than the comparable gasoline version.
