Need another reason to pre-order a 2013 Ford Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid? They’re now approved to travel in California’s High Ococupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes! In fact, The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has bestowed the honor among more 2013 Fords than just about any other make of vehicle! Here are the details according to Ford.com:
“To earn access to these faster moving carpool lanes, vehicles must qualify for tax rebates through California’s Clean Vehicle Rebate Project, which is overseen by the California Air Resources Board (CARB). A vehicle that qualifies earns a special sticker that identifies it as having HOV privileges.
Ford Fusion Energi buyers are eligible to receive a $1,500 tax rebate – in addition to a $3,750 federal tax credit – making Fusion the third Ford brand vehicle to now qualify for California’s special financial and driving incentives, and putting Ford in the lead, along with Toyota, for having the most vehicles of any automaker allowed access to the state’s carpool lanes. Ford Focus Electric and C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid also qualify.”
So, no more excuses. It’s time to take that Golden State road trip!
