While Ford is shrinking its operations in Europe Honda continues to expand in the region. They just announced a diesel Honda civic that gets 65 MPG. This car fits in great with the tastes and preferences of the European market. Diesel is much more popular there, small cars are popular, and like everywhere in the word the European enjoy good MPG. The new civix out performs even the Toyotas Prius’ 53 MPG. I wonder if Honda will gain a larger market share in the European market with products like this.
