Environment-Friendly Car Enters Information Superhighway

Honda has announced the launch of the Web site for its gasoline-electric hybrid vehicle. At www.hondahybrid.com, Web surfers can view preliminary technical information, product features and specifications, photography, and information on Honda clean- vehicles. Visitors to the site have the option of filling out a consumer survey that will put them on a list to receive additional product information as it becomes available. "This site will allow consumers to track developments in the launch of this unique new vehicle," says Tom Elliott, executive vice president of American Honda Motor Co. Inc. "The buyer for this vehicle is very Web savvy. We've already received several hundred surveys from people who visited a beta [earlier] version of the site." Honda's hybrid vehicle -- dubbed the Honda VV -- combines an aerodynamic and lightweight aluminum body with Honda's gasoline-electric hybrid power system. The VV has the ability to travel more than 700 miles on a single tank of gasoline.
