Honda has a range of eco-friendly technologies, many of which come standard on new models. These include features such as Honda Eco Assist, Earth Dreams Technology, and Hybrid systems. These are just some of the many ways Honda is helping to protect the environment and redefine mobility.
Honda Eco Assist is short for “Ecological Drive Assist System” performs two standard functions. First, it provides detailed feedback to help you understand how your driving habits might affect your fuel economy and vehicle emissions. Second, this system also comes with an ECON button to optimize efficiency when your vehicle is running. This means you get a gentler throttle setting, limited A/C and other energy consumption, as well as slightly less power and acceleration. All of these minor changes up your fuel economy without drastically changing vehicle functions.
Earth Dreams Technology is part of a design philosophy aimed at combining environmental performance and fun driving. This includes engine, EV, transmission, and hybrid powertrain technologies. For example, the Sport Hybrid i-DCD engine gives a 30% increase in efficiency, while Intelligent Multi-Mode Drive (i-MMD) uses a unique continuously variable transmission for optimum gear ratios. EV technologies include high-efficiency electric powertrains, many of which are rated top in their class in the world.
