There are 2011 Civic Hybrids in your area.

Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)
Every 2011 Civic Hybrid is equipped with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Similar to an automatic transmission, CVT is an advanced transmission that substitutes the gears found in more traditional transmissions and replaces them with a metal push-belt running between a pair of variable-width pulleys. Combined with the Drive-by-Wire™ throttle system, the CVT constantly adjusts to provide the most efficient drive ratio possible depending on torque load. Honda CVTs provide better fuel efficiency[1] and acceleration when compared to a conventional transmission.

Drive-by-Wire™ Throttle System
The Drive-by-Wire™ system helps enhance the driving character of the Civic Hybrid. With smart electronics connecting the throttle pedal to the throttle butterfly valve in the intake manifold, the engine response can be optimized to suit the driving conditions and to better match the driver's expectations.
Electric Motor
The IMA® electric motor works in conjunction with the gasoline engine and supplies additional torque in assist mode. The motor’s ultra-thin design allows it to be mounted between the engine and the transmission. The motor also functions as the generator for the IMA® system during deceleration and as a starter, quickly spinning the engine up to idle speed.
The Civic Hybrid features a 1.3-liter, 8-valve, i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine and DC brushless electric motor.
