Honda Hybrid Won Green Car Award
Honda has a lot of products available from automobiles to Honda motorcycles for sale and now they are moving on to newer and innovative products that meet the demand of the modern consumers. With the threat of global warming and climate change looming, automakers are trying to create vehicles that will answer the demand to more eco-friendly models.
For the recent awarding of the 2019 Green Car of the Year award, Insight, a hybrid model from Honda took home the title. The Insight is the third generation to the first group of original hybrid cars that were released in the United States.
The very first Insight model was launched in 1999 in the United States and it was released at the same time as the Toyota Prius. The original model is considered to be quirky but later on it was given a new design which never clicked their way to the consumers’ hearts. The latest design is not the third generation and was recently recognized by the Green Car Journal because of its outstanding features such as the fuel efficiency of 52 mile for every gallon, the latest technology and still delivered enjoyment to the drivers.
Just like every year, the Los Angeles Auto Show is where the Green Car of the Year award is given. The honour given by the Green Car Journal is very important to automakers because they view it as a major achievement. The award is given to the automaker that can develop the most interesting model with minimum pollution and high fuel efficiency. The winner is challenged to create a vehicle with exceptional environmental performance but does not break the bank of the consumers who are interested to purchase.
According to Honda’s assistant VP, this is the fourth time that the company was given recognition by the award giving bodies. Aside from the Green Car of the Year, the Green Car Journal has expanded the competition to give other awards such as Green SUV of the Year and Green Luxury Car of the Year. For Honda, the award is a motivation to create better models while Honda motorcycles for sale are raking in great profit for the company in that particular department.
