Honda Canada Displays CO2 Emissions For Each Of Its New Cars

Honda is driven to reduce harmful emissions since 1948. This is an important step.

  • They are the first to do so in North America.
  • This novel approach is meant to display transparency and Honda Canada’s commitment to the environment.
  • Honda Canada’s fleet has held one of or the best overall fuel economy ratings in the country.

What Honda Canada has done is fairly simple: Each and every model they sell, from the Honda Fit to the Honda Pilot, will see the volume of grams per kilometre of CO2 emissions displayed. This applies to various iterations of the same car as well, from the Civic Coupe, Sedan and Hatchback.

This bold move could be seen as perilous however Honda Canada has not taken any undue risks they happen to have one of the most efficient vehicle fleets in the world. Based on the latest 2017 Green House Gas (GHG) report commissioned by Environment and Climate Change Canada, Honda Canada’s fleet held the lowest fuel economy rating and emitted the lowest number of CO2 in the industry.

CO2 emission ratings as whole is still a somewhat foreign concept in North America. Here, we are far more preoccupied with fuel economy whereas most of Europe years ago offered up emission numbers to complement fuel consumption. In Germany, for example, manufacturers from the country disclose the information for many of their models.

Honda Canada is unique in that all models are rated. We applaud Honda’s efforts and hope that other car manufacturers will follow in their footsteps in the near future.
