As Honda moves closer to the launch of the tenth generation Civic, it was announced that the Civic Hybrid and CNG models will be discontinued after the 2015 model year. The Civic Concept, which debuted at the New York Auto Show in the spring, will feature a new turbo charged four-cylinder engine and marks a return to a more athletic Civic. According to Auto Blog, these changes were brought on by consumer preferences and will allow the automaker to focus on the sporty character. These cuts also mark Honda’s focus on an expanded fuel-cell strategy, where they recently spent $14 million on hydrogen fueling stations. In addition to the Civic, the Accord plug-in Hybrid has also been cut to focus on an updated version of its Hybrid system which is due in early 2016.
