Honda Goes Hydrogen: The Honda FCEV Concept

Hydrogen fuel cell concept cars have completely stolen the show this year at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. While several different brands have brought along a hydrogen concept—making a suddenly crowded market out of what was once a far-off dream of zero-emission vehicles—the Honda FCEV Concept is the best, most stylish, and most adventurous hydrogen concept at the show.

With super-aerodynamic design language and lines, coupled with extra room on the interior and an impressive, practical driving range of over 300 miles—with a stunning 3 minute refueling time—the FCEV Concept simply blows the competition away. The FCEV Concept won’t remain just a concept for long, either. Honda plans to bring it to production in 2015, hitting the US and Japan first before trekking to Europe.

Honda executives spoke very strongly about the actuality of the hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle. “While this car is a concept, it points toward a very real future,” said Tetsuo Iwamura, American Honda Motor Co.’s president and CEO. Mike Accavitti, senior vice president, agreed, saying “the Honda FCEV Concept not only sets our direction for our next generation fuel-cell vehicle in 2015, but for future improvements in electric drive technology.” He added, “The advancements we are making are substantial, meaningful and very real.”

Hopefully it’s clear by now, but it’s worth restating one more time: the FCEV is not a pipe dream. It’s a very real car and it will make a very real appearance at Avery Greene Honda sometime in 2015. We can’t wait that long, and we hope you can’t either. Come visit us today!

New CUV Profile: 2014 Honda Crosstour

Avery Greene Honda is proud to announce that the 2014 Honda Crosstour CUV is now available for test drive and purchase at our Vallejo, CA dealership!

When it was first introduced for the 2010 model year, the Honda Accord Crosstour was billed as a wagon-style offshoot of the flagship Honda Accord sedan; since then it has dropped the Accord moniker and become a unique and popular alternative to a hatchback or full-size SUV. After being given a facelift for the 2013 model, year, the Crosstour returns in 2014 with more updates, including a wider driver’s side mirror to reduce blind spots and great safety features like an Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure, Forward Collision Warning and Lane Departure Warning.

The 2014 Honda Crosstour is available in 4 trim levels: EX, EX V-6, EX-L and EX-L V6. The EX-L V6 is also available with 2WD or 4WD.

Honda Civic the Best-Selling Compact Sedan, beating Corolla

It was a long time coming, but it’s finally happened. The Honda Civic is now the best-selling compact sedan in America, after it sold 27,328 units in October, besting the Toyota Corolla’s 23,637. The Civic is also ahead of the Corolla’s year-to-date sales, sitting at 280,899 units to the latter’s 257,184.

It doesn’t seem like the Civic is going to get any competition from anyone else either, as its closest rivals other than the Corolla are the Chevrolet Cruze and Ford Focus, which only sold a measly 16,087 and 15,108 models last month, respectively. These numbers are also not getting any closer: year-over-year, both the Civic and the Corolla have experienced double-digit sales growth while the Cruze and Focus have significantly dropped off.

It seems, then, that the battle for the best-selling compact sedan is between the two Japanese titans, but for now the Honda Civic is a clear winner.

And it’s no wonder. With its combination of convenient size, fuel economy, value, and legendary reliability, we rarely see customers leave the Avery Greene Honda lot happier than with a Civic. Stop by and you could be one of them!
