2017 Acura NSX Earns Luxury Green Car of the Year Award
From the nascent days of Honda, our philosophy has been to be a company that society wants to exist. To achieve this, we understand that Honda products must provide the greatest possible benefit, while having the least impact on our environment.
That thinking was rewarded in January when the 2017 Acura NSX was awarded the 2017 Luxury Green Car of the Year distinction by Green Car Journal. The Acura NSX challenges supercar norms with cutting-edge and world-first technologies. A first-of-its-kind Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive power unit that electrifies all phases of driving – accelerating, braking and cornering – enables an unprecedented combination of performance and efficiency.
Since its earliest environmental success with the CVCC Civic, which was a major breakthrough in reducing emissions and increasing fuel efficiency, Honda has introduced many new automobile technologies designed to help the environment. From gas-electric hybrids and natural-gas vehicles to hydrogen fuel-cell technology, Honda cars have been at the forefront of alternative-fuel powertrains.
“The 2017 Acura NSX delivers the luxury of driving a sports car equally at home on the highway or the track, that also happens to have important ‘green’ credentials,” said Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal and CarsOfChange.com. “Its advanced hybrid drivetrain, impressive aerodynamics, use of lightweight materials, and significantly improved city fuel efficiency over the previous generation are all positive testament to its distinction as the 2017 Luxury Green Car of the Year.”
