"We had a great time at the LA auto show this week, launching the Civic Si Prototype as the latest chapter in our epic 10th-generation Civic story, and kicking off an expanded marketing partnership with the NHL, highlighted by the appearance of two hockey legends – the great Wayne Gretzky and the one-and-only Lord Stanley Cup.

It was an exciting few days, capped off by one more announcement: the 366-mile, zero-emissions Clarity Fuel Cell sedan, coming to Honda dealerships in California next month, will lease for $369/month, giving environmentally-conscience customers the opportunity to truly drive the future and to do it affordably with benefits including $15,000 worth of fuel, 24/7 roadside assistance and more.

Honda continues to lead with innovative technology that improves efficiency, lowers emissions and advances the joy of driving, and based on the latest data from the U.S. EPA, American Honda has again posted the highest year-over-year fleet fuel economy gains of any automaker, making it the most fuel-efficient full-line automaker. And we'll take additional important steps next year with the expanded use of Honda turbo engine technology and the launch of the Clarity Electric and 50-state Clarity Plug-In Hybrid.

Great seeing everyone at the show, and looking forward to an exciting auto show season ahead!"

Sincerely,

Jeff Conrad
Senior Vice President & General Manager, Honda Division
