The Honda Civic GX - Natural Gas Powered Civic Sedan

You may have heard of Honda's natural-gas-powered Civic Sedan. They've sold approximately 1,500 of them each year, primarily to governmental fleets, and some to individuals in four states. If you haven't heard of it… you're about to.

Starting this year, Honda will be bringing its natural-gas Civic GX nationwide. Soon, travelers and commuters in all 50 states will see this gas-powered phenomenon cruising down the road.  

Another more eco-conscious choice for consumers, the natural-gas-powered Honda Civic GX produces less emissions than it traditional counterparts, and 98 percent of the natural gas used in the U.S. comes from North America.

The tricky thing is that there are only about 1,000 natural gas fueling stations in the U.S. As such, Honda is also releasing a gas-electric hybrid version of the Civic, which promises innovative use of lithium-ion batteries. That said, it stands to reason that as demand for natural-gas fueling stations increase, so too will availability.
