Pair of Honda hybrids spied in Death Valley

Honda engineers are working hard on 2 new hybrid cars. The first hybrid appears to be inspired by the Toyota Prius and Honda FCX Clarity, and the second hybrid is a Civic sedan facelift.

The pair were caught undergoing extreme hot-weather testing in Death Valley, CA. The Honda Hybrid will go head-to-head with the 2010 Toyota Prius and is expected to be slightly cheaper, however, spy photographers claim that the mule is larger than the current Prius. The Honda Hybrid will hopefully be on the market in 2010.

The Civic hybrid has been on the European market since 2006 and now its time for a mid-cycle facelift. The Civic appears to get minor changes including a new front bumper with three air-intakes, redesigned, more angular grille opening surrounds the Civic's familiar chrome bar containing the Honda "H." The head-lamps and tail-lamps will be tweaked too.
