7 Ways that Honda reduces your impact on the environment

Looking for an eco-friendly ride this year? If so, take a good long look at Honda, because no other automaker goes to greater lengths to make their vehicles as green as possible. Here we will look at some of the many ways that Honda reduces your impact on the environment, every time you drive.

  1. Eco Assist

Your driving style will have a big impact on how fuel efficient your ride can be and Honda’s Eco Assist lets you know how well you are doing via a colour coded key situated around your driver display gauges. If you are driving as efficiently as possible, the light surrounding those gauges will be bright green, but if you are braking too hard, accelerating too quickly, or displaying other inefficient driving habits, the light displayed will range from light green to white.

  1. ECON Mode

Want to ensure that your Honda is always at its efficient best? If so, just press the ECON button and it will make all of the subtle adjustments necessary to maximise fuel efficiency for you. This can include anything from adjusting your vehicle’s throttle to open a little slower or even limiting the run time on your heater or air conditioner.

  1. LED lights

Honda vehicles now typically come with LED headlights, taillights, and daytime running lights, which reduces your impact on the environment dramatically, because LED lights use only a fraction of the energy used by other bulbs. For example, LED bulbs are typically 80-90% efficient, compared with the 20% efficiency of incandescent bulbs, which also means LEDs produce less carbon dioxide as well.

  1. Idle-stop

With this available feature on-board your ride will shut off automatically anytime you come to a stop, then roar to life once again as soon as the brake pedal is released. Not only will this save you money on fuel, but it’ll mean fewer harmful emissions created as well.

  1. Satellite Linked Navigation

Finding the most direct route from A to B will save you fuel and reduce your impact on the environment, and Honda’s available Satellite Linked Navigation System makes doing so easy. This remarkable system even features bilingual voice recognition and will display your route on the Display Audio System so that you never miss a turn.

  1. Rain-sensing Wipers

Even Honda’s windshield wipers are designed to be as efficient as possible, as they will spring to life the second they sense rain and then shut off automatically as soon as they are no longer needed. This popular available feature will ensure that your ride is only ever using as much energy as it absolutely needs to.

  1. Green engine options

One of the many ways that Honda continues to lead the way in green vehicle manufacturing is by utilizing the latest advancements in eco-friendly powertrain technology. This includes building vehicles powered by a wide variety of greener engine systems, including hybrid, electric, and fuel cell options.
