The Civic Natural Gas has a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $26,740, but may end up costing you less. That’s because the Civic Natural Gas qualifies for incentives based on the fact that it is environmentally responsible and lessens the nation’s dependence on foreign oil. The Civic Natural Gas may qualify for a tax credit for eligible buyers (please consult your tax advisor for details).
Honda is also offering a $2,000 VISA®
Debit Card to those who purchase a new 2012 Civic Natural Gas and a $1,000 VISA Debit Card to those who purchase a new 2013 model. Additionally, California residents are eligible for a $1,000 incentive from the California Energy Commission (CEC) when purchasing a new 2012, 2013 2014, or 2015 vehicle. However, the supply of VISA Debit Cards is limited, so it’s important to check with your local dealer
In addition, the Civic Natural Gas may qualify for non-monetary incentives, such as allowing you to drive in the carpool lane (the High Occupancy Vehicle [HOV] lane) even if there is only one person in the car. California recently extended its HOV eligibility for qualified vehicles through 2018.
