This week I had the chance to look at a natural gas powered Honda Civic. It is the only passenger car built in the US to run on natural gas.
The manufacturer's suggested retail price was $18,155. Its fuel rating was 36 highway and 24 city for a combined 28.
The EPA sticker assumed an annual cost of $1,366 to run based on 15,000 miles traveled and a high $2.55 per gallon CNG cost. Price has been frequently below $2.
60% of parts are US or Canadian made. Honda is boosting US production to keep up with rising demand.
The gas powered Honda Civic: cheaper to run and cleaner.
