ECO Assist allows drivers to play an active role in fuel savings. As the vehicle is driven, bars displayed next to the speed reading inform the driver how their driving habit is effecting their fuel expenditure. Steady accelerating and lower highway speeds help drivers keep fuel usage down. When the the ECO Assist bars are green, drivers know they are maximizing the efficiency of their gasoline absorption.
Many Honda vehicles are also equipped with a special ECON button. When pushed, the vehicle enters ECON mode, reducing the energy requirement of different vehicle systems, saving on fuel. If a speed boost is needed, another push of the ECON button will quickly return the vehicle to its normal operating mode.
Honda has focused on making their whole line more fuel efficient, including the addition of a number of hybrid vehicles. Even drivers of non-hybrid Honda vehicles are enjoying fuel savings. The 2013 Civic Coupe has an estimated fuel economy of 39 mpg* on the highway, and the larger CR-V crossover gets an estimated 31 mpg* on the highway. Middletown Honda is proud to offer some of the market's most fuel efficient vehicles (http://www.middletownhonda.com/
Hybrid models include the Civic Hybrid Sedan, Insight Hybrid, and the CR-Z Sport Hybrid. Vehicles that were once considered experimental are now becoming more popular, also. The Civic Natural Gas, the FCX Clarity, and Fit EV plug-ins are offering drivers alternative fuel sources. Though not yet widely available, Honda plans on increasing drivers' access to these vehicle's in the coming years.
