New Honda technology this year

Honda's finally got a hybrid powertrain that can run electric only at low speed. This should help their sales because Prius has been kicking their butt.

They've also got a an improved gas engine for the Civic chassis now which ups efficiency by 6%.

My Civic will be due for replacement in a year or two - I've been so happy with the Corolla that I've been thinking Prius all the way but I'll be taking a look at what the new Civic owners think next summer (after the hype dies down).
