Japanese carmaker Honda has decided to drop the natural gas powered Civic and the Civic Hybrid models, in an attempt to refresh its green car line up.
Instead of these two models, Honda will introduce a two-motor hybrid and a fuel cell vehicle. Also, Honda is working on a new plug-in hybrid, a new battery-electric car and a three-motor hybrid system.
Honda has decided to drop the Civic Hybrid because the new 10th generation Civic, which is expected by the end of this year, will almost have the same fuel efficiency as the Civic Hybrid.
The natural gas powered Civic will be dropped due to lack of infrastructure, which makes owning a gas powered civic very inconvenient.
The Accord Plug-in hybrid model will also be stopped by Honda since it is slow moving for one, and Honda is planning to debut the next generation Accord with a two-motor hybrid system by 2018.
