Honda developing Diesels for U.S.

UPDATE: It seems there was an error in translation. Supposedly, Mr. Hagino's translator misunderstood what Mr. Hagino was trying to convey. According to a Honda spokesman, there are currently no plans to introduce any diesel models in the US.

In a recent Automotive News report, Honda senior managing director Michiyoshi Hagino was quoted as saying:

"We are working to meet the regulations, and we are going to offer diesel cars in the United States in the very near future,"

Hagino's statement was made on Tuesday at the 2005 SAE World Congress, which is being held this week in Detroit.

Hagino is further quoted as saying that the company is "very much aware" that there is a large number of customers in the U.S. who would like to buy a Honda diesel, but Honda has not yet been able to meet the regulations for diesel engine emissions in the US, and their current technology doesn't allow them to meet those regulations.
