Washington State Ferries takes the Honda Hybrid Road

You've heard about hybrid vehicles for years, with their ability to save you money and benefit the environment. The technology behind them has only advanced as time has passed, and now it transcends the type of transportation you're using.

That's right, ferries can be hybrids too! Ferries are a staple of transportation here in the Pacific Northwest because of all the islands and waterways around us. The Wenatchee ferry in the Washington State Ferries fleet is becoming the first hybrid ferry in the state, and the hope is that other ferries will follow the trend.

Once the Wenatchee makes the switch, it will operate on a hybrid electric-diesel fuel system that will transform it from a gas guzzler into a quieter ship with zero carbon emissions.

Meanwhile, Honda has built fuel-efficient hybrid vehicles for a while now. They're no stranger to hybrid technology, and that's obvious when you drive the Honda CR-V Hybrid.

This vehicle gives you 40 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway, making it an efficient option for long or short trips. Reducing your trips to the gas station means you'll have more money and time to do the things you love.

Utilize three different drive modes that control how the CR-V performs. ECON mode improves fuel efficiency, Sport mode powers up the engine, and EV mode allows the electric motor to take over completely. All-wheel drive comes standard on the CR-V Hybrid, which delivers 212 total system horsepower.

You can refill the CR-V's power by using the regenerative braking feature, which allows the battery to charge whenever the accelerator pedal is released.

The CR-V is loaded with technology to help make your drive fun, convenient, and safe. Stay connected on the go with a wireless phone charger, a 7-inch display screen, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. LED headlights turn on and off automatically, illuminating your drive while maintaining the theme of saving energy. Rain-sensing wipers prepare you for the Northwest's worst weather. A multi-angle rearview camera provides three different views to show you everything that's behind you. Sensors cover your blind spots on the rear bumper that detect vehicles you may not see.

All hybrids stick together. Once the Wenatchee is converted to a hybrid vessel, you can board it by driving the CR-V into the vehicle hold, opening up even more adventures across the waterways of the Pacific Northwest. When you choose a hybrid vehicle, you can feel confident about taking the Honda Hybrid Road, which is based on making choices that benefit the world around you. That's as easy as picking up trash on the street, making someone smile, or driving a vehicle that saves fuel and reduces carbon emissions.
