Honda Civic is 2012 Green Car of the Year

Honda Civic is 2012 Green Car of the Year

And it’s not even 2012 yet.

The 2012 Green Car of the Year award didn’t go to an electric or diesel vehicle (as it has the past few years) but instead was taken by none other than the Honda Civic Natural Gas. The Civic beat out the Ford Focus Electric, Mitsubishi i, Toyota Prius V and the Volkswagen Passat TDI.

Green Car Journal hands out the award and its rules state that the GCOTY needs to have a “quantifiable environmental achievement.” Any car that has these clearly defined features and is available for sale by January 1, 2012 can be a nominee, and the list of finalists is selected by industry and environmental experts.

The Civic Natural Gas produces 110 horsepower from its 1.8-liter i-VTEC four-cylinder engine and has a range of about 240 miles on a full tank.
