Honda offers alternatives to gasoline.

Honda expects to sell a hydrogen-powered Honda sedan based on its FCX in 18 months. The vehicle was unveiled last month at the Paris motor show. The new fuel-cell vehicle will go on sale in select markets at first.

According to Honda President Takeo Fukui, Honda has accepted the challenge to create advancements in the area of fuel consumption. The company will also expand its hybrid line in 2009, with a hybrid vehicle specifically designed for families.

A next-generation diesel engine is also due from Honda. The car uses a catalytic converter that reduces oxide emissions to meet U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requirements.
