After announcing in December 2011 that it is developing a new engine range, Honda is finally set to reveal the first of its Earth Dreams Technology powerplants at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
The first Earth Dreams Technology engine is a 1.6-liter diesel mill that will be introduced in the all-new Civic later this year.
Reportedly the lightest engine in its class, the 1.6-liter diesel engine has an output of 118hp and 300Nm of torque, emits less than 100g/km of carbon dioxide and a class-leading balance of fuel economy and performance.
The 1.6-liter Earth Dreams Technology diesel engine will join the Honda NSX Concept, the European-market CR-V prototype and the electric-powered EV-STER two-seater, open-top sports car on stage at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
Honda's Earth Dreams Technology line is aimed at producing engines that "will deliver excellent performance and environmental values" throughout the Japanese carmaker’s entire product lineup.
