The Civic Hybrid debuted in 2002 as a 2003 model, and has since climbed to the top of the hybrid segment. It is currently one of the top selling electric hybrid vehicles in the states. This Hybrid was styled after the seventh-generation Civic. The second-generation Civic hybrid, based on the eighth-generation Civic, ran through 2011, and received some major upgrades, including an improved electric motor and certification as AT-PZEV in 50 states.
Now in its third generation, the Civic hybrid is one of the best buys in the hybrid segment. It gets high marks for its cabin comfort, fuel economy, and versatility. For 2014, the Hybrid received a restyled exterior and several new features, including keyless ignition and smartphone connectivity.
