Honda's Earth Dreams Technology is a win

Recommended Posts

It was more than a year ago when Honda Motor Company Ltd announced the launching of a new technology for their automobiles. This next-gen technology is called Earth Dream Technology and works closely with the environmental causes around the world. They planned to work on the internal combustion, transmission, and electric-powered engines. By 2020, their expectation is that they would be able to reduce carbon emissions by as much as 30% for all their products. Through the ‘Earth Dreams Technology’ Honda betters the already marvelous VTEC technology to provide even better power and efficiency. The important aspect of the Earth dream technology is that every engine class will receive a different modification, according to the specific need of the class.

Last December 2012, two of the new Earth Dream Technology engines were included in the 10 Best Engines for 2013 by Ward’s Auto World. Both engines are used in the 2012 Honda Accord model, 2.4, 4 cylinder and 3.4, V6 engine models. Now in its 19th year, the Ward's 10 Best Engines competition is designed to recognize powertrains that set new benchmarks in their respective vehicle segments. To be eligible, an engine must be all-new or significantly improved and be available in a production vehicle that will be on sale by first-quarter 2013.

The new direct-injected 2.4-liter i-VTEC in-line 4-cylinder powerplant is the standard Accord engine. Offering 185 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque, this engine delivers 4-percent more horsepower and 12-percent more torque compared to its predecessor, while operating on regular unleaded fuel and meeting the strict PZEV and ULEV-2 emissions standards. With its high-flow exhaust system, the Accord Sport Sedan 4-cylinder engine generates 189 horsepower and 182 lb-ft of torque.

The use of the technology has pushed the sales up in numbers for Honda in the US and has had an acclaimed acceptance through the auto-critic circle too. Honda "Earth Dreams Technology" is a next generation set of technological advancements which greatly enhance both driving performance and fuel efficiency, using, as its base, advanced environmental technologies to pursue the joy of driving unique to Honda. The ‘Earth Dreams Technology’ is every bit of what Honda always stands for and we hope the company continues its effort towards a better world and a better driving experience every day.
