It has received top environmental awards including the American Council for Energy-Efficient Economy's America's Greenest Car title for five consecutive years. Honda has a long history of environmental leadership, including the introduction of America's first mass-produced hybrid, the Honda Insight, and the first vehicle to meet California's low emission vehicle standards well in advance of regulatory requirements as well as the first government-certified fuel cell electric vehicle.
