Honda Civic Hybrid Earns Advanced Technology Partial Zero Emissions Status

June 16, 2003

On June 12, the CA Air Resources Board (CARB) awarded certification as an Advanced Technology Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (AT-PZEV) to the Honda Civic Hybrid under the state’s Zero Emissions Vehicle (ZEV) program. The certification means that the vehicle produces about 90 percent fewer smog-forming engine emissions than required of a typical new vehicle in its class. To achieve the AT-PZEV classification, a vehicle must be a Super Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle (SULEV) with zero evaporative emissions and must carry a 15-year/150,000 mile warranty on emissions equipment. The Civic Hybrid joins Honda’s natural gas-powered Civic GX as the only two vehicles to so far achieve AT-PZEV status under the ZEV program.
