Honda claims the Civic Natural Gas emits almost zero smog-forming particles and is the cleanest internal-combustion vehicle certified by the EPA. It will receive a decal that qualifies for single-occupant access to HOV carpool lanes in several states across the country including California.

Natural gas is also about 30 percent less expensive than gasoline, so the fuel economy rating of 27 mpg city and 31 mpg highway will net owners a significant decrease in fuel consumption costs over a standard Civic. Honda claims that the new Civic Natural Gas improves upon the old Civic GX's fuel economy by 10.7 percent overall.

The 2012 Civic Natural Gas will be powered by a 1.8-liter, four-cylinder A 3,600-psi aluminum fuel tank sits between the rear wheels and carries the equivalent of 7.8 gallons of gasoline.

Honda will build the 2012 Civic Natural Gas in Indiana, giving it the claim of being the only OEM-built natural-gas-powered vehicle to originate from the United States.
