Clean Pass Vehicle program

New York Clean Pass Vehicles Available at Apple Honda

New York's Clean Pass Vehicle program was created to incentivize drivers to buy low-emissions, energy-efficient vehicles with a free pass to the HOV lane on the Long Island Expressway, regardless of how many people are in the vehicle. Save money, gas, and time simply by electing to go green and get behind the wheel of one of Honda's Clean Pass Vehicle-certified models. As part of Honda's goal of having a totally electrified lineup by 2025, there are plenty of options that qualify for different styles of drivers.

In order to qualify as a Clean Pass Vehicle, a car must receive at least 45 miles per gallon by EPA estimates and meet the California Air Resources Board SULEV emissions standard. The list of Honda models who meet these requirements are as follows:

  • Honda Accord Hybrid, model year  2015 & 2017 - 2019
  • Honda Accord PHEV, model year 2014
  • *Honda Civic Hybrid, model year 2006 - 2010
