2012 Honda Civic Hybrid




Resources for the Washington DC area   

 Honda has redesigned the Civic Hybrid for 2012. It's restyled, and it has an improved hybrid battery pack. It uses lithium ion chemistry, while most other hybrids usa a nickel metal hydride design. The engine is a larger dispacement (1.5 liter) version. The new model gets improved mileage over the 2011 model. Tho' it's called a 2012, it's available now.

Reminder, be compassionate, get the non-leather version!

One advantage of the new hybrid battery is that it is smaller, for a given capacity, compared to last years battery. This helps keep a relatively large truck area, but doesn't allow for a fold down rear seat. (image courtesy Honda)
