Honda Will Be Importing the 2015 European Hatchback

By | Honda Cars | No Comments

I personally know several Honda Civic hatchback owners that have enviously eyed their European counterpart for it’s unique style. Well now they won’t have to import from the UK! According to Nikkei Asian Review, Honda wants to start selling the Civic hatchback in America less because it thinks that’s the model Americans want, and more because it has excess capacity at its plant in the UK. Bringing it to the US would also give Honda an entry against the Volkswagen Golf and other competitors.

Honda’s plant in Swindon, England, is its sole assembly location in Europe, where the company’s market share has dropped to a reported one percent. That doesn’t mean Honda is giving up on the European market and its strong currencies, but with models like the HR-V to be manufactured in Mexico and the new Fit/Jazz to be imported from Japan, the Swindon plant doesn’t have enough vehicles to produce to make use of its annual capacity of 250,000 vehicles. Producing 30,000-40,000 Civic hatchbacks each year for North America would help pick up some of the slack, but not all of it.

It would also only represent a small fraction of the number of Civic sedans Honda moves here. Last year Honda sold over 325,000 Civics in America and over 336,000 the year before, making the Civic its second- or third-most popular model here after the Accord and closely positioned with the CR-V crossover. The reported number of Civic hatchbacks it would sell here wouldn’t even keep up with the smaller Fit, but would far overshadow the CR-Z hybrid hatchback.

Fast Fact – Honda Hybrid Vehicles

By | Honda Cars | No Comments

Welcome to our Fast Facts section at Wilde East Towne Honda, where we highlight interesting facts once a month.  This month, we are learning about Honda’s Eco-friendly Hybrid vehicles. Currently, Honda offers eight alternative fuel vehicles including the 2015 Accord Hybrid, 2015 CR-Z Sport Hybrid, 2014 Insight Hybrid and 2015 Civic Hybrid.

Hybrid vehicles are unique in a way that they combine the benefits of a gasoline engine and an electric motor to obtain different outcomes, such as improved fuel economy, increase power or additional auxiliary power for electronic devices. A gas-powered car has a fuel tank, which supplies gasoline to the engine. The engine then turns a transmission, which turns the wheels. An electric car, on the other hand, has a set of batteries that provides electricity to an electric motor. The motor turns the transmission and the transmission turns the wheels. A gasoline-electric car combines these two into one system that leverages both gas and electric power. Honda uses parallel hybrid technology to produce top performing Eco-friendly vehicles. Parallel hybrid cars have a fuel tank that supplies gasoline to the engine and a set of batteries that supplies power to the electric motor. The electric motor assists the engine to help reduce fuel consumption in standing starts and accelerations.

For the average consumer, the most noticeable advantage to owing one of Honda’s Eco-friendly Hybrid vehicles is the great gas millage and how quiet they are. But, the great thing about Honda hybrid vehicles is that they teach you how to drive more efficient. Honda has incorporated the famous “ECON” button and Eco Assist feature in every hybrid vehicle and non-hybrid vehicle, currently made to give every driver an option to maximize their fuel efficiency. By pressing the ECON button, you optimize operation of the transmission, engine and other power train components to help conserve additional fuel. Eco Assist helps drivers develop driving habits that enhance fuel efficiency by providing feedback via color-changing displays, typically integrated in the speedometer, that indicate fuel efficiency in real time. Honda hybrid vehicles go a step further than the non-hybrid vehicles to show the driver, in a small display on the dash, how much energy is being regenerated with the brakes, which sends electricity to the battery. Regeneration begins the instant the driver’s foot leaves the accelerator, not when the brake pedal is pressed as it does on other hybrids. Because of regenerative braking, Honda hybrids love driving in the city!

By | Community Support, Dealer News, Events, Honda Cars | No Comments

On Sunday, March 15th, Mid-West Family Marketing held a Healthy Living Expo located at the Marriott Madison West location. We were excited to be part of this great event and would like to thank everyone who stopped by and said hello! Informational exhibits ranged from sleep to health testing and of course, information about our Eco-Friendly cars! The complete list of exhibits can be found at madisonhealthexpo.com.

At the expo, you could find a Main Stage, a Cooking Stage, a Kids Zone and an Active Zone!

Medical Social Worker, Home Health United, Casey Zimmerman of IronGirl Fitness & Yoga, Michelle A. Niesen, MS, PA-C, Rejuvenation Clinic of Sauk Prairie and Lisa M.

The Cooking Stage featured Badger Bowl Catering and Banquets. Badger Bowl Catering and Banquets demonstrated how you can make traditionally “non-healthy” meals and turn them into healthier options for your family and offered samples for everyone to try. The Kids Zone offered fun activities for kids, such as a bouncy house, to help them be more active and healthy. Offering fun workout activities, the Active zone was a favorite for many. They offered a Triathlon Cycling workout demo, Kickboxing, a Fit Body Bootcamp, Yoga and a Dance for Fitness routine that anyone could try.

There was no way you could miss our booth! We were located right next to the Main Stage and the Kids Zone. On the floor, we were able to display our well-known Honda Odyssey and the new 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid! Behind the cars, our booth was set up with an iconic pallet-wall, Econ Wheel-spin wheel and prizes! Everyone who spun our Econ Wheel was a winner!

We had a great turn out and had fun giving away prizes.

We look forward to future expos where we give you more chances to win great prizes! Stay connected with us through Facebook and visit our website so you know when our next expo is!


2015 Honda Civic May Receive a Stock Turbo Engine in 2015

By | Honda Cars, Honda Innovation | No Comments

What I love about the Civic is how quickly it responds and handles for such a little car. Most view it as an affordable economy car, which it certainly is, but those who have driven or owned one can definitely attest to how fun they are to drive. They may just be getting a whole lot more fun in 2015.

The brand is planning to build a wave of VTEC Turbo four-cylinders in 2015, some of which will come to the U.S. and all of which will be produced at the automaker’s plant in Anna, Ohio.

The report’s main source is Honda’s global R&D chief Yoshiharu Yamamoto, who said that “downsized turbocharging will be the base, even for Civic.” The engine most likely to see duty in the Civic is a 1.5-liter turbo four of unknown output, which will help the company meet stricter emissions mandates while giving the next-gen Civic performance characteristics that will help the car stand out when it arrives, perhaps as early as later this year.

Any excuse to add turbo to a 4 cylinder engine is fine by me.
