Honda Canada Unveils Images of New Civic HybridJan 18th, 2024
- Civic Hybrid joins CR-V and Accord in Honda’s expanding hybrid-electric line-up
- 2025 Civic Hybrid production will start with the sedan at Honda of Canada Mfg.
- Civic Hybrid expected to represent over 40% of model sales in North America
Honda Canada today revealed images of the new Civic Hybrid sedan, with production beginning at Honda of Canada Mfg. (HCM) in Alliston, Ontario this spring.
The Civic was introduced to Canada 50 years ago and is one of Honda’s most iconic and recognized nameplates. It has been one of Canada’s most popular and top selling passenger cars for more than a quarter century.
HCM began building the Honda Civic in 1988 and the six millionth, made-in-Canada Civic rolled off the line in November 2023. Employing 4,000 associates today, HCM’s recent investments and retooling led to it becoming Honda’s global lead plant for CR-V Hybrid production. The Civic Hybrid now follows on that proven Canadian manufacturing success with HCM being named lead North American plant for Civic Hybrid production.
The new Civic Hybrid will be another key step in Honda’s electrification strategy, which includes equipping its core models with hybrid-electric systems. Honda expects Civic Hybrid sales to represent more than 40% of Civic sales in North America.
The 2025 Civic Hybrid will be powered by a version of the award-winning Honda two-motor hybrid-electric system. Offering improved responsiveness for a sportier driving feel, it creates a more relaxed driving environment at highway speeds while improving fuel economy.
Honda Electrification Strategy
Toward its global goal to achieve carbon neutrality for all products and corporate activities by 2050, Honda has a vision to make battery-electric and fuel cell electric vehicles represent 100% of its new vehicle sales by 2040. Sales of EVs will begin early this year, including the all-new 2024 Honda Prologue, Honda’s first all-electric SUV. In 2025, a mid- to large-size EV model based on Honda’s dedicated e:Architecture will go on sale.
In addition, Honda Motor recently debuted its new global electric vehicle series called ‘Honda 0 Series’ which includes two concept models, Saloon and Space-Hub at the recent CES 2024 in Las Vegas. A production model based on the Saloon concept will be introduced in 2026.
