Customers of this car are now eligible for special savings from the California Energy Commission, an immediate credit supplied directly by certified Honda dealers at the time of purchase. In addition, Californian drivers have the added benefit of qualifying for single-occupant access to High Occupancy Vehicle “carpool” and High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes in the Greater Los Angeles area.
“With gasoline prices forecasted to rise in California this summer, attractive offers like purchase credits make this a great time to purchase a Civic Natural Gas vehicle,” said Steve Center, vice president of the American Honda Environmental Business Development Office. “If you’re looking to save money at the pump, spend less time in traffic, and reduce your environmental impact, the Civic Natural Gas Vehicle is an ideal choice.”
With a combined EPA fuel economy rating of 31 mpge3 and a fuel cost savings of up to 40-percent compared to gasoline, the Civic Natural Gas vehicle can significantly reduce consumers’ pain at the pump. The Civic Natural Gas, powered 100-percent by cleaner-burning, abundant and primarily U.S.-sourced natural gas, can be refueled in a matter of minutes, much like a conventional gasoline-powered car.
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 April 22, 2015, whichever occurs first.
