New Honda Civic Natural Gas vehicle customers in California eligible for immediate $1,000 purchase credit
Californians purchasing a new Civic Natural Gas vehicle are now eligible for an immediate California Energy Commission $1,000 purchase credit supplied directly by certified Honda Civic Natural Gas dealers at the time of purchase.
Retail customers and fleet clients interested in receiving the $1,000 purchase credit with the purchase of a new Civic Natural Gas vehicle (up to 20 vehicles per fleet client or retail customer) must make their purchase from a certified Honda Civic Natural Gas dealer while California Energy Commission purchase credits remain available. The supply of purchase credits through the California Energy Commission is limited to 1,600 and expires when all have been distributed or on 22 April 2015, whichever occurs first.
In addition to the purchase credit savings, Civic Natural Gas vehicle customers in California have the added benefit of qualifying for single-occupant access to High Occupancy Vehicle “carpool” and High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes.
White Clean Air Vehicle Stickers are available to an unlimited number of qualifying Federal Inherently Low Emission Vehicles (ILEVs). Cars that meet these requirements are typically certified pure zero emission vehicles (100% battery-electric and hydrogen fuel cell) and compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles.
Per California’s AB 266, the expiration date for the white stickers has been extended to 1 January 2019. Single-occupant access with a qualifying vehicle to the California State Route 110 and Interstate 10 High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes in Los Angeles County has been extended through January of 2015 pending state legislative approval.
California has the most robust natural gas fueling infrastructure in the nation with more than 150 stations in the state.
With a combined EPA fuel economy rating of 31 mpge and a fuel cost savings of up to 40% compared to gasoline, the Civic Natural Gas vehicle can reduce drivers’ costs.
The only dedicated CNG-powered passenger car available for retail purchase from a major automaker in the US, the Civic Natural Gas is manufactured exclusively by Honda Manufacturing of Indiana in Greensburg, Indiana, using domestic and globally sourced parts.
