Honda Rearview Camera

Honda Sole Automaker to Receive Highway Safety Hero Award

Honda has been named a “Highway Safety Hero” by the Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety—the only company to receive the honor in 2014.

The automaker’s application of safety and driver assistive technologies as standard equipment has helped Honda’s commitment to improving safety for all road users stand out in the U.S. automotive industry.

Honda Rearview Camera

Over 94% of US Honda vehicles sold in 2013 had rearview cameras, making the OEM a Highway Safety Hero.

For example, more than 94% of Honda and Acura models sold in the U.S. in 2013 were equipped with standard rearview cameras, a feat no other automaker has been able to match then or even in 2014. By the 2015 model year, all Honda-made models will be standard with rearview cameras.

Other driver assistive technologies now featured as standard equipment in most Hondas include Forward Collision Warning and Lane Departure Warning, which helps reduce accidents by preventing them from ever happening. Honda now also offers an Expanded View Driver’s Mirror and LaneWatch display to help improve driver visibility.

Japanese Automakers Begin New Charging-Station Company

While some might say that the car industry is all about competition, this isn’t 100% true. Honda, Toyota, Nissan, and Mitsubishi are coming together, along with the Development Bank of Japan, to found Nippon Charge Service LLC, a new charging-station company in Japan.

Green Cars

Automakers have joined together to support a new car charging-station company.

The four Japanese carmakers helped the company get started by giving it 80 million yen, or $786,000 US. Nippon Charge Service LLC, which was establishes to promote plug-in vehicle charging installations across Japan, will help business owners incorporate charging stations at convenience stores, highway-side locales, and other locations to make it easier for plug-in vehicle drivers to charge their cars. The four automakers hope to triple the country’s current number of publicly accessible chargers to around 17,000 units.

While the chargers will exclusively charge plug-in vehicles from Honda, Toyota, Mitsubishi, and Nissan, Nippon Charge Service will follow in the footsteps of the EZ Charge system in the US, which uses a universally-accepted charging card to drivers who own these brands’ plug-ins. This will allow for the process to be significantly more seamless.

Honda Super Cub is Granted 3D Trademark

The Honda Super Cub, a small, affordable scooter, the all-time best-selling vehicle powered by an internal combustion engine, with over 60 million sold worldwide. According to Road and Track, the Japan Patent Office has now awarded the 56-year-old super scooter with a 3D, or Shape, trademark – making it the first ever to be granted to an automaker in Japan.

The Super Cub was sold in the U.S. under the nameplate “Passport” until 1983, and has been offered with a number of different engines, though its original design hasn’t changed much. The scooter has become so popular, that several companies outside of Japan make knock-offs. While the trademark may not do much to help stop the fakes, the trademark is a huge victory for Honda and its iconic scooter.

This raises the question, why don’t we have the Super Cub here in the U.S., and how can we get it back? We think the residents of Vallejo, CA, and other cities nationwide could put these things to good use!

In the meantime, you can check out a wide variety of new Honda cars, trucks and SUVs to get you from Point A to Point B right here at Avery Greene Honda! Our friendly staff is happy to help you find the car that’s right for you!

2014 Honda CR-V

Honda Sales up 1.1 Percent in April

Despite a weak overall sales month for the entire automobile industry, Honda and Acura are happy to announce a 1.1 percent increase in sales when compared to April 2013.

2014 Honda CR-V

The Honda CR-V set a Honda sales record in month of April.

Honda Fit

2015 Honda HR-V is a Fit Crossover, and That’s About All We Know

Everybody is more than a little excited about the 2015 Honda Fit, and with good reason: it stands to be one of the most exciting small cars on the market this year. While the Fit represents Honda at the pinnacle of small car mastery, the all-new 2015 Honda HR-V will express Honda’s potential to dominate the compact SUV market.

Honda Fit

The all-new Honda HR-V will be a CUV offshoot of the Honda Fit!

“Both Fit and HR-V demonstrate how great things can come in small packages, and no one does this better than Honda,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda automobile division for American Honda, in a press release. “Together these models also represent Honda’s step-by-step expansion of our production in the region, which has been key to our success in America for more than 30 years.”

So what do we know so far about the HR-V? It shares a lot of its bones with the Fit, with both being built on the same platform. It’s something of a riff off of the Urban S.U.V. that appeared in New York at this same time last year, and based on the pictures we’ve seen, it looks quite sharp.

That, as they say, is the story so far. There were no specs released, though we could assume that the HR-V will get the same four-cylinder engine that will power the sporty fit. We do know that Honda has projected for a winter release…oh, how cruel is Honda to make us think that there will be a next winter.

We will have more information on the 2015 HR-V as it becomes available to your trusted Avery Greene Honda bloggers.
