Much to the chagrin of buyers in many states, the Honda Civic GX is currently sold only in the States of California, New York, and Utah. The reason? Infrastructure. The GX is natural gas powered and therefore requires natural gas filling stations, or home filling stations. Oklahoma has now been added to the list of states in which the car will be available for consumer purchase; it had previously been available in Oklahoma to commercial fleets.
Honda has made their decision in light of Oklahoma being the second leading state in natural gas production and the incentives offered by the State of Oklahoma.
There are 13 Honda dealerships in Oklahoma, and they are all set to carry the GX, which given its performance to date, is expected to sell with fury. The MSRP starts at $25,340 and the EPA estimates 24/36 mpg city/highway.
