As an inherently low emissions vehicle, buyers of the Civic GX may qualify for a $4,000 federal tax credit1 as part of government program to promote clean, alternative-fuel vehicles and fueling infrastructure. Many states, including California, are continuing to offer single-occupant carpool-lane access for Civic GX drivers.
The Civic GX is equipped wîth a 1.8-liter, i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine that produces 113 horsepower @ 6300 rpm and 109 lb-ft. of torque @ 4300 rpm, and achieves an EPA-estimated2 city/highway fuel economy of 24/36 miles per Gasoline-Gallon Equivalent (GGE). Maximum fuel-tank capacity is 8.0 GGE at 3,600 pounds per square inch. A 5-speed automatic transmission is standard.
Built on a high-rigidity, unit-body platform, the Civic is designed to deliver precise and refined handling performance wîth its fully independent MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspension designs. A sweeping roofline and a sleek windshield angle convey an advanced, one-motion profile. The interior focuses on sophisticated styling wîth a two-tier instrument panel, CNG-optimized fuel gauge, comfortable seating and accommodating storage areas wîth room for mobile phones, compact discs and more.
A wide array of standard safety technologies includes the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure; side curtain airbags; driver's and front passenger's side airbags wîth a passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS); and dual-stage, multiple-threshold driver's and front passenger's front airbags (SRS).

The Civic GX is the only OEM-built, CNG-powered passenger car assembled3 in America. The Civic GX is built on the same assembly line as the gasoline-powered Civic four-door models at Honda's Greensburg, Indiana, manufacturing facility.
As an inherently clean-burning fuel, natural gas produces 75 percent fewer smog forming pollutants (oxides of nitrogen) compared to the output of a conventional gasoline engine. Natural gas is also an abundant, domestically sourced fuel that is approximately 30 percent less expensive than gasoline when purchased at a public access refueling station.
The Civic GX is the only vehicle certified by the EPA to meet both Federal Tier 2 Bin 2 and Inherently Low Emission Vehicle (ILEV) zero evaporative emission certification standards. ( posted on conceptcarz.com) The Civic GX has earned recognition from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) as the 'greenest vehicle of 2010' for the seventh consecutive year.Source - Honda
