Hendrick Honda Bradenton

By on August 29, 2014
Honda has a long history of leadership in the development and application of advanced technologies and vehicle designs that enhance the safety of Honda customers and other road users, including motorcycle riders and pedestrians. The company operates two of the world's most sophisticated crash test laboratories and is responsible for numerous pioneering efforts in the areas of airbag technology, collision compatibility and pedestrian safety. This commitment to safety is founded in Honda's goal to be a company that society wants to exist, and it complements the company's leadership in reducing vehicle emissions, improving fuel efficiency and advancing alternatives to gasoline.

CONCORD, N.C. – 3M will join 11-time Sprint Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports beginning with the 2015 NASCAR season when it will become a primary sponsor of driver Jeff Gordon and his No. 24 Chevrolet SS team.



The new relationship will feature 3M as a primary sponsor in 11 Sprint Cup races annually and as an associate-level partner in all other events. The agreement covers the 2015, 2016 and 2017 NASCAR seasons.

All five of 3M's business units, which comprise more than $31 billion in annual sales, will use the sponsorship in consumer promotions, product launches and business-to-business opportunities.

“At 3M, we play to win, and we push hard every day to do just that,” said Jesse Singh, senior vice president, 3M Global Sales and Marketing. “With this deal, we align with champion driver Jeff Gordon and an organization at the top of its game in Hendrick Motorsports. What they do in the garage and on the track exemplifies what we’re all about in our labs, plants and business teams around the world.”

With more than 65 of its products used in the construction and maintenance of Sprint Cup Series race cars, 3M for decades has played a key role in the success of NASCAR teams. The company manufactures more than 80,000 different products and has been an official NASCAR partner across several categories since 1995.

“The range of 3M’s business is just incredible,” said Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports. “It’s an amazingly diverse company that spends billions in research and development to continue rolling out new and innovative products. We’re already using many of them throughout the organization, and when you consider the potential for both consumer and business-to-business programs connected to our sport, the possibilities are endless.”

One of the most accomplished drivers in NASCAR history, Gordon is a four-time Cup Series champion, and his 90 victories rank third on the all-time wins list. Currently second in points, he has two victories, one pole position, seven top-five finishes and 15 top-10s in 22 Sprint Cup races this season.

“Innovation is what 3M is known for,” said Gordon, 43, who has a lifetime contract with Hendrick Motorsports. “We’ve seen that approach throughout their involvement in NASCAR, and it’s a terrific fit for what we do at Hendrick Motorsports and with the No. 24 team. I’m personally excited about the opportunities and thrilled to represent a company that’s so passionately supported auto racing for such a long time.”

Introducing the Honda HR-V, a dynamic, fuel-efficient small SUV with sleek styling and next-generation connectivity. This all-new vehicle recently made its world debut at the New York Auto Show. Its clean character lines are complemented by hidden rear door handles, giving the SUV a sporty presence.



As part of Honda's light-truck lineup, the HR-V is built on a unique center-tank layout and offers a versatile, spacious interior. It's equipped with the Honda-exclusive Magic Seat®, so you can fold the second-row seat completely flat for added cargo space and greater flexibility. Smaller than the CR-V, the HR-V SUV is an ideal size for both city streets and mountain roads.

"This project is an important step in enabling plug-in vehicles to reach their potential as a valuable distributed resource that can increase grid stability, improve power quality and reduce demand peaks," said Steven Center, vice president of the Environmental Business Development Office at American Honda. "Honda is participating in several projects aimed at accelerating vehicle-to-grid integration, which has the potential to reduce the total cost of owning a plug-in vehicle while enabling higher concentrations of renewable energy."

Project seeks to develop a streamlined platform for vehicle-grid functionality that can help create value for drivers, improve grid reliability and reduce GHG emissions

Honda pioneered a similar demonstration effort with IBM and PG&E (V1G)

Honda is participating in a vehicle-to-grid (V2G) demonstration with the University of Delaware and NRG Energy

Recent crash tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety indicate that smal cars had a tough time in passing

12 mostly small cars were crash-tested and the results weren't weak to say the best. Four cars were rated poor overall, two were marginal and five passed in the small overlap crash test, according to IIHS. The best performer of the pack was the Mini Cooper Countryman, the only one to rate "good."

The small overlap carsh test is meant to replicate hitting a pole or a glancing blow head-on with another car.

Honda's small cars were not listed in the test. I wonder why?

Here is how those that were tested ranked:

Good:

Mini Cooper Countryman

Average:

Chevrolet Volt, Ford C-Max Hybrid, Mitsubishi Lancer, Scion FR-S, Subaru BRZ.

Marginal:

Hyundai Veloster; Scion xB

Poor:

Nissan Leaf, Nissan Juke, Mazda5; Fiat 500L

Summertime Preparation in the event of an Automobile Accident
On the up side, summertime can be great for cruising around town in your car. Moonroof or windows open, (maybe not) and the radio cranked up. On the downside summer also means more drivers on the road and, because of this, more potential hazards and accidents.

We want you to know the steps you should take if you find yourself in an automobile crash? Here’s a list of actions you should follow immediately after being involved in a crash.
• The first step you should take in any automobile accident, if possible, make sure every party involved in the crash is safe. If someone has sustained an injury, call 911 immediately.
• Use your cell phone to take photos of the crash site, the more detailed the better. Include photos of all cars involved, and give an official account of the incident to local police. By doing this, official records are kept of the accident for later use.
• Swap contact information and insurance details with the other drivers in the crash. This will be especially helpful for insurance companies in tracking down the other parties in a timely fashion.
• Report the accident to your insurance agent immediately. You should also have your car inspected by an adjuster soon after the crash to help determine insurance rates and repair costs.
Hendrick Honda Bradenton’s service department is ready to assist you this summer with everything from scheduled maintenance to detailed repairs and installations of accessories.
Be sure to contact us for more information, or to schedule an appointment. Please remember these tips to ensure safety and efficiency in the aftermath of an accident, and be safe on the roads this summer! And PLEASE pass this information on to your friends and family members.

Have a Safe and Enjoyable Summer!
