CDTi's Advanced Platinum Group Metal Catalyst Featured On Accord Hybrid And Accord Plug-In Hybrid

VENTURA, Calif., July 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clean Diesel Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:CDTI) ("CDTi" or the "Company"), a leader in advanced emissions control solutions, is pleased to announce that Honda Motor Co. ("Honda") is now selling its 2013 Accord Hybrid and Accord Plug-In Hybrid, featuring CDTi's high-performance Mixed Phase Catalyst (MPC®) technology. The Hybrid is expected to begin production in the U.S. this summer with sales commencing in the U.S. in the fall while the Plug-In Hybrid model has recently become available for sale in the U.S.

Along with the Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid models, CDTi also provides its catalyst solutions to Honda for North American versions of their four- and six-cylinder Accord as well as the Acura TSX.

The MPC design is focused on excellent thermal stability, giving its catalyst products three critical attributes that differentiate them from competing offerings:
  • Allows significantly improved performance with a given level of precious metals – to meet increasingly stringent emissions standards and powertrain diversification
  • Achieves a given emission standard with greatly reduced precious metal use
  • Enables the development of ZPGM catalysts with unique activity and performance

"Hybrid and plug-in vehicles can improve fuel economy, lower fuel costs, and provide significant emissions benefits over conventional vehicles by producing no tailpipe emissions when in all-electric mode. Honda has been a leader in the advancement of hybrid vehicles and we are proud to be the supplier to such a premium brand. With advancing degrees of hybridization a much higher performance level from the catalyst is required due to the intermittent use of the combustion engine. The use of the CDTi catalyst by Honda for these types of vehicles is a strong endorsement of our capabilities. As global emission regulations continue to tighten, we are well positioned with our advanced MPC technology platform to deliver automakers increasingly cost-effective, high-performance catalyst emission solutions," said Craig Breese, President and Chief Executive Officer of CDTi.
