New Honda City Passes Euro 4 Standards

Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) announces that the New City has officially acquired EURO 4 emission standard certification from Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR). This is the first vehicle in Honda’s line-up to be locally certified with EURO 4 level emission standards. The certification is pursuant to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources Administrative Order (DAO) No. 2015-04 which mandates that all new passenger and light vehicles, and heavy duty motor vehicles made available in the market should comply with EURO 4 emission standards by January 2016 from the present EURO 2 emission standards.

HCPI first introduced EURO 4 level ready products in 2004 and by the end of 2006, all Honda models sold in the Philippines were already at EURO 4 emission level.

DENR stresses the importance of adopting EURO 4 emission standards for the sake of minimizing pollutants in the environment and for the assurance of the quality of air that we breathe. A EURO 4 compliant emits a much lower harmful substances such as Carbon Monoxide (CO), Hydrocarbons (HC) and Nitrogen Oxide (NOx).

In line with the idea to minimize pollutants, Honda always keeps in mind leaving behind a cleaner and greener environment, which is why Honda produces products that are environment friendly, of high-quality, and safe to use. Honda assures customers that the emissions coming from their vehicles have minimal effect on the environment. As HCPI President and General Manager, Toshio Kuwahara mentioned during their HR-V and New City launch event, “It has always been one of our thrusts to leave blue skies for our children. As part of our continuing mission to do so, we at Honda are one with the government’s endeavor to help protect and sustain our environment and do our part to ensure breathable clean air. We would like to assure our customers that Honda takes proactive actions to help contribute in reducing the destruction of our ozone layer and the effect of global warming’.

As of present time, Honda is proactively applying for certification for the rest of their vehicle line up. Kuwahara explains that “by January 2016, all Honda vehicles, from smallest Brio until Odyssey minivan will be officially certified as EURO 4 compliant.”
