This figure is 44 mpg in fact not good enough, especially when compared to something like the Toyota Prius. However, we are talking Honda Civic Hybrid. On their 2011-model, the chances city / highway / combined 40/43/41. But now with the Honda Civic Hybrid 2012 is the grade 44/44/44.

This car is advertised in the Auto Show in New York, and to be honest, there are so many here mph 40 vehicles from various car manufacturers. However, these models have described only one of three categories, and it is usually the side of the road. So it's pretty impressive when Honda says get up to 44 mpg no matter how you drive your Civic Hybrid.

The secret to fuel economy is on the improved battery, which is now with Honda's Integrated Motor Assist system fitted. In addition to the nickel-metal version of the model 2012, 20 kilowatt-cell Li-ion battery, 5 kW stronger and a little lighter than the NiMH battery.
