Honda recently awarded an all-new 2010 Honda Insight hybrid to Nehal Sanghavi of Austin, TX, as the winner of an environmentally-focused contest at the October 2009 Austin City Limits music festival. Sanghavi, along with thousands of other festival attendees, participated in the 'Rock & Recycle' program, which aimed to promote recycling and eco-friendly transportation.
American Honda Motor Co., Inc., worked with C3, the promoter of Austin City Limits, as an official Eco-partner for the event. Honda's support as an Eco-partner on-site in Austin included integrated "green" activities, hybrid-vehicle displays and the giveaway of the all-new 2010 Insight hybrid car.
"Austin City Limits made helping the environment fun through the Rock and Recycle program," said Tom Peyton, senior manager of Honda national advertising. "Where else can you see terrific, diverse artists play, do a little recycling and win a new Honda Insight?"
Honda is continuing its industry-leading efforts to address the environmental challenges of global climate change, emissions reduction and energy sustainability through a comprehensive approach that involves further improvements to gasoline-engine fuel efficiency; the development of real-world alternatives to gasoline, including natural gas and the hydrogen-powered fuel cell car; and technology for refueling alternative fuel vehicles. In 2007, Honda was named the "Greenest Automaker" by the Union of Concerned Scientists for the fourth consecutive time.
