Civic is official ‘green’ vehicle for Olympic trek

The natural gas powered Honda Civic GX and the Civic Hybrid were chosen as the official vehicles for the traditional "Peace, Youth and the Environment" message trek between past and future Winter Olympic cities. A team of cyclists, hikers, rowers and sail-boaters traveled from Salt Lake City to New York State and on to Torino, Italy sharing a message of peace with youth and civic groups in towns and cities along the route.

The nearly zero emission Honda sedans served as support vehicles to the volunteers who carried the message for the American portion of the route, which began on April 4.

The team's message was a special delivery from the mayor of Salt Lake City to the mayor of Torino, Italy, demonstrating the commitment and importance of the environment, young people and peace throughout the world while on the world's stage.

The gasoline-powered Honda Insight and Civic Hybrid captured four of the top five spots in the EPA's 2004 fuel economy rankings.

For 2005, Honda is the only manufacturer to offer a natural gas powered vehicle on a light duty platform.
