Honda has a fleet average fuel economy of 29.4 miles per gallon and its fleet-average CO2 emissions of 302 grams per mile.
“Honda is proud to play a leading role in the move toward a more efficient, low-emissions mobility future and it's encouraging to see the industry as a whole making significant gains, despite low fuel prices and the market trend toward trucks and SUVs,” said Robert Bienenfeld, assistant vice president of energy and environmental policy for America Honda Motor. “There’s a lot of work still to be done, but with record sales and production of Honda electrified vehicles and more planned, we are committed to continue improving our fuel economy performance.”
The company envisions for two-thirds of its automobile worldwide sales to be electrified vehicles by 2030 and is making significant investments to produce electrified vehicles in the U.S.
