2.2 Million E-Mail Addresses and VINs Stolen From Honda

Honda has begun to reach out to the 2.2 million customers who have had their names, e-mail addresses and vehicle identification numbers (VINs) poached by hackers that infiltrated the car company's database. Honda's luxury brand Acura also had its systems hacked, but only e-mail addresses were stolen. The cause for concern here is obvious. With names, e-mails and VINs in hand, it would be easy for...

Honda Motorcycle Modded to Get Over 200-MPG

After three years, thousands of dollars, and a run-in with the law, Dutch designer Allert Jacobs has built one of the most fuel-efficient motorcycles on the planet. According to Popular Science, Jacobs designed a fiberglass shell for his Honda Innova 125i bike that allows it to get more than 200 miles-per-gallon. To master this aerodynamic design, Jacobs first built a small-scale model of the...

Design Concepts: The New Tricycle

The Web is teeming with the unrealized ideas of both students and established designers who set out to produce astonishing renderings and prototypes for unusual products. Unfortunately, due to the lack of time, money, or technology, many of those products never progress from the planning stages to the mass market. But that doesn't mean we can't salivate over them, nevertheless. What will our...

Modded Honda Motorbike Looks Like a Spaceship, Gets Over 200 MPG

At its very essence, a motorbike is a pretty darn fuel-efficient mode of transportation. Filling up the gas tank of a standard model won't exactly break your bank account (or even your piggy bank). But for Allert Jacobs, his Honda ANF125i Innova's fuel economy of more than 100 miles per gallon (mpg) just wasn't good enough. So he went to work. According to Treehugger, Jacobs modified the bike...

Honda U3-X Suggests Future Mobility Involves Unicycle Segways

Imagine our surprise when we saw, early this morning, that Engadget had posted evidence of this extreme transportational weirdness. Just when we thought that the world at large had come to some sort of consensus -- a peace accord, if you will -- and decided, once and for all, that the Segway was the most ridiculous, least useful, and dorkiest transportive innovation since the unicycle, Honda had...

Honda's Web Site Tops Usability Survey... Again

Back in the day, we'd have to drive to a local car dealership to check out the different models and options, and to maybe even bring home a colorful brochure with the same information. These days, we just start up Firefox, type in a URL, and virtually shop for cars from the comfort of our own homes. But not every car maker's Web site is as good as the next. According to a Web site usability...

Updated Look at Prius-Killing 2009 Honda Insight

With hybrid cars being all the rage, Autoblog has an updated look at the 2009 Honda Insight, a month before it debuts at the Detroit Auto Show in January. The official photo shows a car that looks pretty similar to the concept shown at the Paris Motor Show and Los Angeles Auto Show -- and, it should be noted, very, very similar to Toyota's Prius. Honda expects to sell about 100,000 Insights in...

Honda Debuts Futuristic FC Sport Fuel-Cell Hybrid Concept

If the Tesla Roadster has proven anything other than the disruptive effects of a hyper-inflated ego, it's that well designed eco-vehicles will sell... at any price. Yet the general design theme amongst hybrid builders appears to be your grandfather's loafer. Honda too, just look at the FCX Clarity. So we're pretty stoked to see Honda roll out its FC Sport concept three-seater (driver...

Honda Introduces New Walking Assist Machine

For a company most famous for its wheeled products, Honda certainly seems quite focused on things to help people get about on their own two feet, introducing another new prototype machine with just that in mind. Unlike the earlier Walking Assist Device, which is intended just to help patients re-learn how to walk, the new (and cunningly named) Walking Assist Device with Bodyweight Support System...

Honda to Offer New Hybrid at Sub-Prius Price

The Paris Motor Show kicks off in October and Honda plans on unveiling what it hopes will be a Prius killer at the event. The as yet unnamed hybrid hatchback is to be priced lower than both the Prius and Honda's own Civic Hybrid, though exactly how much lower remains to be seen. The new car is expected to be the opening salvo in Honda's move to dominate the hybrid industry. Honda hopes to sell...

Honda's Hydrogen-Powered FCX Clarity Coming to the US, and It's a Celeb-Magnet

If you're in the market for a fuel efficient car, but you've been holding out for something a little more advanced than the Prius, then your dreams may have just been answered. Honda announced today that it would begin producing limited quantities of its FCX Clarity hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles for sale in the US and Japan over the next few years. According to the automaker, it plans to offer...

Honda Targeting Dog Lovers

Since the dawn of marketing, companies have been targeting niche audiences to sell more products. Soccer moms, gamers, environmentalists, hipsters -- all have found themselves in the crosshairs of some company's marketing campaign or research and development team. Now, Honda is trying to mine a burgeoning section of the populace in : dog lovers. The company has been aggressively courting canine...

Honda to Sell New Gas-Electric Hybrid Next Year

In what feels like loooooong overdue news, Honda has announced that it will sell "a new, improved and affordable gas-electric hybrid in the USA, Japan and Europe" starting in early 2009, as outlined by President Takeo Fukui at the company's Tokyo headquarters Tuesday. The design of the new vehicle will be inspired by the FCX Clarity (pictured above); it will be a five-door sedan that seats five...

New Honda GPS System Avoids Crime, Doesn't Fight It

Ever been absent-mindedly following the directions of your GPS only to look around and suddenly notice that you're being guided into a particularly bad part of town? No, it hasn't happened to us either, but apparently it has happened to enough Honda engineers and executives for the company to decide to make crime avoidance a feature in the newest navigation systems for its cars in Japan. The new...

Circuit City Botches GPS Install, $12k in Damages, Won't Pay Up

For most GPS systems, installation is as simple as sticking a suction cup on the windshield or an adhesive disc on the dash, plugging in an adapter to the cigarette lighter, and hitting the power button. But, if you want something a little more flush and integrated, you have to go with a device installed in your dash. Unless you're the adventuresome type and know what you're doing, dashboard...
