To avail of the $1,000 purchase credit, retail and fleet customers must purchase their units from a certified Honda Civic Natural Gas dealer while California Energy Commission purchase credits are still available.

The California Energy Commission has only allotted 1,600 purchase credits for the Honda Civic Natural Gas. The offer will last until April 22, 2015 or until all purchase credits have been distributed, whichever occurs first.

Honda Environmental Leadership
Honda's diverse portfolio of alternative fuel vehicles has included numerous technologies to improve fuel efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions including the first EV leases in California (1997 Honda EV Plus), the retail introduction of America's first hybrid (1999 Honda Insight), delivery of the first fuel-cell electric vehicle in the U.S. (2002 Honda FCX) and five generations of the Civic Natural Gas (first introduced in 1998). Honda has been recognized as among the top automakers in the Union of Concerned Scientists' (UCS) rankings of overall vehicle environmental performance since 2000, and a Honda vehicle has been included on the list of America's greenest vehicles from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) for the past 16 years.
