Statement by American Honda Motor Co., Inc., on Proposed New Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) Standards
4/22/2008 7:55:00 PM
Honda is studying the details of the proposed new standards. We embrace the challenge and the opportunity these standards present for the health of our planet and the future of the automobile.
Honda has long supported the idea of tougher federal fuel economy standards and has advocated strongly for the adoption of new standards that will further advance the cause of increased automobile fuel efficiency and reduction of C02 emissions that contribute to global climate change.
As this new standard is size-based in nature, it establishes a higher fuel economy requirement for Honda than many of our competitors because of our long-standing commitment to producing smaller, more fuel efficient vehicles.
Going forward, we will apply our best and most creative engineering efforts to achieve even higher fuel efficiency.
