Tokyo, June 7, 2012—AGC (Asahi Glass Co., Ltd.; Head Office: Tokyo; President & CEO: Kazuhiko Ishimura) announced today that UV Verre PremiumTM was adopted by Honda Motor Co., Ltd. for the first time and has been installed in the She’s, HYBRID She’s and HYBRID XH Selection of the Fit compact cars.

In Fit’s latest minor face lift, Honda improved the fuel efficiency and user-friendliness, and added a touch of individuality to the existing lineup to develop colorful variations that can each match the personalities of different individuals. UV Verre Premium has been adopted for newly introduced She’s and HYBRID She’s, which are mainly targeting women, and for HYBRID XH Selection, which is an upper-grade hybrid.

AGC’s UV Verre Premium is the world’s first*2 tempered glass for automotive front door windows which successfully filters out approximately 99%*3 of the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. By blocking UV rays from coming into the vehicle almost completely, UV Verre Premium protects drivers against UV rays as effectively as wearing sun-protection gloves.

*1 UV Verre Premium is called “Super UV Cut Front Door Glass” within Honda Motor Co., Ltd.
*2 Based on AGC data as of December 2010.
*3 AGC’s survey data. UV Verre Premium blocks approx. 99% of the sun’s UV rays based on ISO9050-1990.
