2012 Honda Civic Natural Gas Priced From $26,905
This spring Honda revealed its 2012 lineup for the Civic, except for the Natural Gas model, the one previously known as the Civic GX. Now they’ve offered all the juicy details about this model and as its name says, it runs on compressed natural gas and it is in fact the only natural-gas passenger car sold in the United States that is coming from a major automaker.
The base price for the 2012 Honda Civic Natural Gas is $26,155 plus $750 for the destination fee, for a grand total of $26,905. If you want the model fitted with the satellite navigation system, prepare to pay $27,655 + the destination fee. This means that the price tag of the car is about $1,000 higher than the equivalent 2009 Honda GX model.
The car is motivated by a 1.8-liter engine that the Japanese engineers have modified in order to work on natural gas, and it is linked to a 5-speed automatic transmission. Approximately two-thirds of the trunk space is occupied by the cylindrical tank where the fuel is.
In California, the 2012 Honda Civic Natural Gas qualifies for a special sticker that allows the vehicle to travel in High-Occupancy Vehicle lanes with only one occupant. This would have to be a privilege that recently ended for 85,000 owners of three different hybrid models, including here earlier versions of the Civic Hybrid.
EPA has certified the vehicle as being the cleanest 2012MY car that has an internal combustion engine. It is scheduled to go on sale at approximately 200 qualified dealers of the company from October 18th and it will be available in 38 states in the U.S.
