The 'green' models will be retired as the company introduces the 10th-generation Civic, scheduled to arrive later this year.
"With two new engines on the new Civic, including our first turbo engine, we are targeting class-leading fuel economy for Civic, with EPA highway fuel economy a few ticks above 40 miles per gallon," the company said in a statement.
In a separate statement, the company suggests the Accord Plug-In Hybrid will be the top fuel-sipping model in the lineup, while the Civic will narrow its focus on performance and handling.
The next-generation Civic will be offered with a range of powertrains, including a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine. A high-performance Type-R range topper will arrive in 2017, more than a year behind the entry-level models.
