Was just surfing the net and came across this car on wiki... its a Honda civic that is "designed" to run on CNG! Which means theres no conversion kit in it... it has been researched to work on natural gas!
I wonder why Honda hasnt introduced it yet here in Pak?
Although theres so much demand here for CNG vehicles...? And people get their rides messed up with those cng conversion kits.. tht r not so cool due to many problems!?
Heres some bit from the article:
The Honda Civic GX first appeared in 1998 as a factory-modified Civic LX that had been designed to run exclusively on CNG (compressed natural gas). In 1998 the Civic GX cost $4500 more than a comparable Civic LX. The car looks and drives just like a contemporary Honda Civic LX, but does not run on gasoline. In 2001, the Civic GX was rated the cleanest-burning internal combustion engine in the world by the EPA.
The GX was first leased to the City of Los Angeles to be used by parking enforcement officers and other city employees as a live beta test. The GX follows the same model year design changes as the Civic LX model, until the model year 2001 when a CVT (continuously variable transmission) was introduced in place of the 4 speed automatic transmission. In the 2006 year model, the GX again was equipped with the automatic 5 speed transmission, which increased its mileage and extended its range to 250 miles.
In 2005, Honda started offering the GX directly to the public through factory trained dealers certified to service the GX. Before that, only fleets were eligible to purchase a new Civic GX.
In 2006, the Civic went through its greatest modification since its inception. All variants of the Civic were awarded the 2006 Motor Trend "Car of the Year" award.The 8th generation Civic remains unchanged from 2006 and is also available in the GX model. The GX is a very limited-availability car with fewer than a thousand units per year being produced by the factory.
In October 2006, the 2007 Civic GX became available in New York, making it the second state where the consumer is able to buy the car.
In July 2009, the GX became available to the public in Utah.
In April 2010 the GX became available to the public in Oklahoma. Honda chose this market thanks to low natural gas costs and state incentives.
