Honda produces the Civic in sedan, hatchback and high-performance versions. The sedan and hatchback models will be getting the hybrid equipment to start. Customers will get the opportunity to take the sedan hybrid home first. Production of the hatchback hybrid variant will begin later.

Why is Honda Making a Civic Hybrid?

Overall, our manufacturing partner has been making big strides in the areas of fuel economy and manufacturing sustainability. Currently, more than 35 percent of CR-V and Accord sales are of the hybrid variety, and nearly 20 percent of Honda sales across Canada are electrified or hybrids.

Honda has the goal of completely eliminating new vehicle gas-powered powertrains by 2040 and to be globally carbon neutral across its operations by 2050.
