2007 Honda NGV Still HOV-Eligible in California

January 30, 2007

TORRANCE, CA – New Honda natural gas vehicle (NGV) drivers will continue to be eligible for single-occupant use of High Occupancy Vehicle (HOVs) lanes in California. The 2007 Honda Civic GX is the only new vehicle that is eligible for consumers to register for single occupant HOV permits (AB 2628), now that the maximum number of 85,000 hybrid-vehicle HOV permits have been issued, according to Honda. New Honda Civic GX buyers may also be eligible for a $4,000 federal tax credit when they file their tax return for the year in which the vehicle was purchased. Additionally, buyers of the natural gas vehicle home refueling appliance “Phill” are also eligible for up to a $1,000 tax credit. Phill refuels the Civic GX from home at a lower cost than gasoline, according to Honda. Honda is currently the only manufacturer to market a natural gas passenger car to fleet operators nationwide and directly to consumers in the states of California and New York, according to the manufacturer. Phill can also be leased in conjunction with the Civic GX at certain California and New York Honda dealers.
