2013 Honda Civic, Karma Production, Mazda6 Diesel: Today's Car News

November 30, 2012

Honda is releasing a heavily-revised version of its best-selling Civic compact, in response to criticism of its 2012 update. The new Civic models feature more content, revised styling (on sedan versions) and a cabin that is both quieter and more refined than that of the current version.

Fisker has suspended production of its extended-range electric luxury sedan, the Karma, pending the sale of battery supplier A123 Systems’ assets. Without a second vendor for its lithium-ion cells, Fisker is hoping that the buyer of A123 Systems’ inventory can quickly resume delivery of the needed cells.

Mazda has announced a clean diesel version of its new Mazda6 midsize sedan, making it the first Asian manufacturer to introduce a non-commercial, clean diesel passenger car for the United States market. Sales are expected to begin in the second half of 2013.
