Honda Studying Offering Diesels in the US

15 April 2005

Autoweek reports from the SAE Congress in Detroit that Honda is studying ways to offer diesel-powered vehicles in the United States.

“We are working to meet the [emission] regulations, and we are going to offer diesel cars in the United States in the very near future,” [Michiyoshi] Hagino [Honda senior managing director] told an audience at the SAE World Congress in Detroit this week.

“We know that there are a lot of potential customers in the U.S for diesel models. However, the emission standard is so high and currently we don't have technologies to meet it. We will try hard and hopefully we can develop technologies which can meet the regulation in the near future.”

Last year the company introduced its first Honda-built diesel auto engine, the i-CTDi 2.2-liter diesel offered in the Accord sold in Europe. (Earlier post.)

The links all appear to work on this end. Which one is giving you problems?

The problem meeting US emission rules is the adoption of low-sulphur fuel as in Europe.
