Honda Offers Discounts on Solar Energy to Customers

Honda has joined forces with SolarCity to help make solar energy more practical and affordable for Honda and Acura customers.

The campaign, which aims to bring attention to climate change and decrease CO2 emissions from cars, homes and buildings, will offer $65 million nationwide to subsidize initial solar power startup costs for Honda and Acura customers’ homes. By reducing or removing costs to install solar energy units, Honda hopes to ease the transitions to solar energy from utilities and ultimately lower monthly bills for consumers.

“At Honda, we are always looking at ways to improve the lives of our customers while reducing our environmental footprint,” said Steven Center, a Honda spokesperson. “We believe Honda and Acura customers are going to be very interested in going solar once they find out that they can install solar at their home with little or no upfront cost, can lower their monthly utility bill, and can make a positive contribution to protecting the environment.”

This campaign will mark the first partnership between an auto manufacturer and a solar energy organization. The offer is available for Honda customers in the 14 states that Solar City services, including California, Oregon, Washington and Colorado.

Honda unveils Urban SUV Concept

Honda promised to deliver an exciting new small concept at the Detroit Auto Show, and it didn’t disappoint.

The dynamic and youthful concept unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show hints at the styling direction of an all-new small SUV set to be sold in Japan by the end of this year, and set to land in the U.S. next year.

“No one has had greater success with small cars than Honda, and this Urban SUV Concept will create new value in the growing small-SUV segment,” said John Mendel, executive vice president of sales at American Honda. “With the continued expansion of our North American manufacturing operations, we expect fuel-efficient and fun-to-drive ‘small’ cars to play a key role in meeting the needs of our customers in the U.S.”

The all-new small SUV will be based on the Urban SUV Concept and is expected to pack high fuel efficiency and space into a small package. Honda has also promised “next-generation telematics and a modern interior.”

2013 Honda Accord wows Consumer Reports testers

The 2013 Honda Accord is, once again, rated among the best mid-sized sedans. Consumer Reports magazine, a trusted name in auto reviews, picked the car as its top favorite mid-size four-cylindar.

Consumer Reports noted the model’s improvements over last year, and also praised its “roomy interior, frugal fuel economy, fun-to-drive character and an attractive combination of features and price.”

The Accord definitely lives up to the hype: with a 2.4-liter engine and continuously variable automatic transmission, the sedan earns 40 miles per gallon on the highway, with an average rating of 30 mpg. It features an updated, sporty exterior and plenty of space on the inside.

Honda Urban SUV Concept to be unveiled in January

Honda announced recently that its “Urban SUV Concept” vehicle, a compact vehicle expected to hold a spacious and functional interior with a dynamic profile, all in the body of a small SUV, will be unveiled in January.

This global concept model may influence Honda models to be sold in Europe and other markets. Teaser photos can be seen at www.hondawebcast.com, and the model will see its debut at the 2013 North American International Auto Show. Honda traditionally uses this major auto industry event to showcase its biggest ideas for the model year. Viewers can watch the unveiling live at www.hondawebcast.com at a time to be determined.

The new model is getting some attention already. Edmunds.com noted earlier this month that, “The Honda Urban SUV Concept may be one of the most significant unveilings at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, as Honda offers an intriguing downsized model with slightly riskier styling than most of the current lineup.”

Carmakers Greening Up For the New Year

The LA Auto Show is usually a great indicator of auto trends: and it’s looking like a green Christmas this year, according to a report from NBCNews. As many as 50 cars, trucks, and SUVs will make their initial debut at the this year’s LA Auto Show, giving a feel for the upcoming year. And 2013’s looking, well, more than a little green.

Show-goers will likely take notice of Honda’s new plug-in, the Accord PHEV. The Accord PHEV will be part of the all-new Honda platform, but will be able to fun in all-electric mode for in-town driving and in hybrid mode for over 500 miles without being plugged.

And, high-efficiency gas motors will continue to be big a big deal in 2013 due to their affordability and practicality. The Honda Fit is expected to be a major player once again this year.

Honda Accord Most Stolen Car in America

The Honda Accord routinely earns awards for durability, dependability, performance, and style. One of the older Accord models has just received a rather dubious award: According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), the most stolen car in America is the 1994 Honda Accord.

The reason? Lots of older Accords are still on the road, far more than other vehicles of the same class. The Honda Accord was 1994’s bestselling sedan, and continued to be for most of the 1990s.

Of course, many of these thefts can be easily avoided. Drivers can simply lock their vehicles, as 50 percent of vehicles stolen are unlocked.  Also, 25 percent of all vehicle thefts occur because a wallet or purse is in plain sight, and 15 percent of all stolen cars have a key in the ignition.  Sometimes avoiding being a victim of theft is just common sense.

The top ten most stolen cars in America, according to the NCIB are:

  1. 1994 Honda Accord
  2. 1998 Honda Civic
  3. 2006 Ford F-150
  4. 1991 Toyota Camry
  5. 2000 Dodge Caravan
  6. 1994 Acura Integra
  7. 1999 Chevrolet Silverado
  8. 2004 Dodge Ram
  9. 2002 Ford Explorer
  10. 1994 Nissan Sentra
