Honda Stage Connects With Millennials

Honda has always been big on innovation, and now is making a big move into the music scene with its new music platform, Honda Stage. The multi-platform program is designed to meet music fans in environments where they’re already searching for and consuming music, according to a report filed by Forbes magazine.

 

Honda is focused on attracting millennials who consume a big portion of online media in comparison to traditional TV.  The auto manufacturer is anticipating brand loyalty and an increase in sales as a result of the new initiative.

 

American Authors Performing at the Honda Stage

 

With its addition to the music industry with the Honda Civic Tour back in 2001 that has thus far entertained 3.5 million americans, Honda is looking to offer Honda Stage as a youtube channel devoted to original content as well as 200 sponsored live events over the next year.

Coming up next for Honda Stage is of course the 2014 Honda Civic Tour, where this year musical acts GroupLove and Portugal.The. Man. will look to bring many new fans out to the tour who usually would not be making the trip to the tour. The 2014 Honda Civic tour will be coming to Kansas City at Crossroads on August 29.

Honda Honors Fantastic Fathers in “Dads Doing Good” Campaign

Posted by Jason Heard, general sales manager at Frank Ancona Honda

Honda is teaming up with the National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI) and Life of Dad to create a series of videos showcasing the amazing work that fathers do in the “Dads Doing Good” campaign.

For five weeks, videos of dads using the 2014 Honda Odyssey to make a positive impact on their families and communities will be featured on the NFI and Life of Dad websites.

“We are proud to support the “Dads Doing Good” program this summer,” Alicia Jones, manager of Honda and Acura social marketing at American Honda Motor Co., Inc., said in a news release. “The 2014 Honda Odyssey is the perfect vehicle to help enable these dads to help in the community.”

Each video shows just how dynamic the 2014 Honda Odyssey can be. For Week 1, the dads turned the Odyssey into a library-on-wheels, and for Week 2, the fathers raised awareness for congenital heart defects by turning the vehicle into a lemonade stand.

Check out the NFI website for more weekly videos.

2012 Honda Civic Hybrid’s New Fuel Efficient feature: ECO Assist

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,  

No Comments on 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid’s New Fuel Efficient feature: ECO Assist

Here is some information from Honda’s website on the new ECO Assist feature on the 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid.

He who drives with the most efficiency, wins.

Push Yourself

The Civic Hybrid now has a quick and easy way to boost your efficiency. Just push the ECON button[1]. The engine and other power-using systems will then go into super-efficient mode to maximize your mileage.

Coach is Calling

If you’re trying to squeeze every mile out of a gallon (and who isn’t these days?), keep an eye on the Honda Eco Assist™[1] feature. Those blue and green bars on either side of the speedometer indicate your level of efficiency as you drive.

Hybrids Go the Distance

All Civic models have Eco Assist™, but the Hybrid model makes the most of it by giving you a handy Eco Guide to help you along the way, and by tabulating your Eco Score at the end of each drive.

Give Me an MPG

Take advantage of all the gas-saving technology in a new Civic Hybrid, and you can get an EPA estimated 44 mpg[2] on the highway. That’s money in the tank. And a neighborly nod to the environment.

Leaves, a Legacy

The Civic Hybrid benefits from all the innovations since Honda introduced the first gas-electric hybrid to the American market in 1999. It’s all led to this latest milestone: a next-generation Civic Hybrid available with an impressive AT-PZEV CARB Emissions Rating[3].

[1] Eco Assist and the ECON button are trademarks of Honda Motor Co., Ltd., and may not be used or reproduced without prior written approval.

[2] 44 city/44 hwy/44 combined mpg. Based on 2012 EPA mileage estimates. Use for comparison purposes only. Do not compare to models before 2008. Your actual mileage will vary depending on how you drive and maintain your vehicle.

2012 Honda Civic 44 MPG Hybrid Provides Fuel Efficient Alternatives to High Gas Prices

No Comments on 2012 Honda Civic 44 MPG Hybrid Provides Fuel Efficient Alternatives to High Gas Prices

Posted By: Jason Heard

Here is a recent blog post from Gas 2.0, written by Christopher DeMorro, announcing the 44 mpg rating of the new 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid.

Honda Civic Hybrid: 44 MPG, up to 68.7 MPG?

Hello, Prius? Yeah, there’s a new guy in the neighborhood, and he’d like to talk about fuel efficiency. His name is the 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid, and he’s got a 44/44/44 mpg rating. And he looks like a car.

While its not quite the 45 mpg rating we were promised, this 44 mpg rating on the 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid is an impressive feat of engineering for a number of reasons, not the least of which was building a hybrid on one of the top selling vehicle platforms of all time. That could help the Civic Hybrid to attain the sales volume needed to make an impact on the dominant Prius sales. But as I’ve pointed out before, the MPG Gap is quickly closing between Toyota’s hybrid and the rest of the crowd, and they’re doing it in vehicles with more mass market appeal. The Civic Hybrid is 7 MPG behind in highway driving, but only 4 in the city, and I like that I could buy a Civic Hybrid, and most people wouldn’t even notice the difference (on the outside at least.)

So how did Honda improve its hybrid system for that lovely 44 mpg rating? They gave the new Civic Hybrid lithium-ion batteries to start with, which were 30% smaller than the old nickel-hydride battery pack (that the Prius V gets stuck with here in the states.) They also gave the hybrid a slightly larger engine, from 1.3 to 1.5 liters, which provides more power using the same amount of fuel. The electric motors also had their output bumped up to 20 kW as well. All told, HybridCars was able to get 68.7 mpg on a 10-mile road course set up by Honda, the best mpg score of the day during a media preview earlier in April (where was my invite?? I coulda done better.)

Alas, the 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid will have a starting cost of $24,050; throw in leather, satellite radio and navigation and you’re talking closer to $27,000. Honda doesn’t have too high of sales hopes for the 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid at just around 1,300 units a month, but with the extra volume from other Civic sales they can continue to invest in fuel-saving technology that will eventually spread out across their whole lineup. Sure, some media outlets aren’t happy with the lack of dynamic changes to the Civic’s looks, but I really like the looks of the most recent Civics. It feels like a completely different class of car from the Civics of old, but it doesn’t come across as trying to make a statement either. It’s just a really, really, really efficient version of the Civic, and that tickles me just right.
