Trinidad and Tobago, through local dealership Classic Motors in the Port of Spain, is now offering the Honda City Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) version, selling for TTD 150,000 (USD 23,500). The vehicle, introduced to the market on March 17th, is manufactured by Honda in Thailand and is reported to be the first CNG Honda to be sold in the Caribbean.
“The Honda CNG will make it even more convenient and enjoyable to tap into the desirable and abundant supply of natural gas that lies beneath Trinidad,” said Jim Burrell, assistant vice-president of American Honda Motor Company.
Available with a sports transmission (Model CNG-S) or standard automatic transmission (Model CNG-V), the Honda comes with a 1497 cc in-line 4-cylinder engine able to deliver 120hp at 6,600 rpm and 107 lb-ft (145 N m) torque at 4,600 rpm.
The bi-fuel vehicle has a 40 litre gasoline tank and 65 liter CNG tank. It is able to travel 350 km on CNG and has a bi-fuel range in excess of 800 km.
Last week, the Honda City CNG won Thailand’s Car of the Year award for Best Sedan under 1500 cc.
