A new era in efficient engines.
Our CVCC engine, launched in 1974, allowed us to meet strict emissions standards without the use of a catalytic converter.
Zero to Hero
Minimizing manufacturing impact.
Our Alliston, Ontario manufacturing facility has aimed to achieve zero waste-to-landfill targets since 2007.
Setting the pace for the climate.
Honda Canada and the Honda Canada Foundation have donated more than $2 million to organizations that focus on conservation.
