July 13, 2007

TOKYO -- Honda Motor Co Ltd. will develop a low-emission diesel engine for large vehicles for the North American market, and plans to roll out the first models by 2010, the Nikkei business daily reported on July 11, according to the Web site CNN Money.

Honda will develop a V-6 diesel engine that can be installed in 3.5-liter vehicles, the Nikkei said, without citing sources. The engine will enable it to introduce diesel versions of large, high-end models in the North American market, such as Odyssey minivans, the Pilot sport utility vehicle and the Ridgeline pickup truck.

It also plans to launch diesel versions of models for its luxury Acura line.
