Frank Ancona Honda Features Eco-Friendly Lineup of Cars for Earth Week

Posted By Jason Heard, Sales Manager

Frank Ancona Honda is proud to feature a line of vehicles that allow you and your family to reduce your carbon footprint with the help of an eco-friendly, and wallet-friendly, means of transportation. In true Earth Week fashion, the Kansas City area’s most trusted dealership boasts a lineup which earned Honda the title of the Greenest Automaker in the U.S. by the Union of Concerned Scientists.


Honda recently announced a partnership with SolarCity, America’s largest solar power provider, according to the motor company’s website. The collaboration is an important step toward reducing CO2 emissions, which contribute to global climate change.

The American Council for Energy-Efficient Economy reminded the nation of Honda’s irrefutable contribution to a greener world when the council announced that the Fit EV and Civic Hybrid were named to the list of the Greenest Vehicles of 2013 last week.
