Californians purchasing a new Civic Natural Gas vehicle are now eligible for special savings from the California Energy Commission – an immediate $1,000 purchase credit supplied directly by certified Honda Civic Natural Gas dealers at the time of purchase (while funds last). 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.
With a combined EPA fuel economy rating of 31 mpg (gasoline gallon equivalent; based on 2014 EPA mileage ratings) and a fuel cost savings of up to 40-percent compared to gasoline, the Civic Natural Gas vehicle can significantly reduce consumers’ fuel costs. Powered 100-percent by cleaner-burning, abundant and primarily U.S.-sourced natural gas, the car can be refueled in a matter of minutes, much like a conventional gasoline-powered car.
The only dedicated CNG-powered passenger car available for retail purchase from a major automaker, the Civic Natural Gas is manufactured exclusively by Honda Manufacturing of Indiana in Greensburg, Indiana, using domestic and globally sourced parts.
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.
Honda Environmental Leadership Honda’s diverse portfolio of alternative fuel vehicles includes five generations of the Civic Natural Gas (first introduced in 1998).
