Go Green and Save at Pacific Honda

If you’re on the fence about the 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid, maybe we can help you make up your mind. Granted, as a Honda dealership, we’re a bit biased about the cars we carry, but even by those standards, the Honda Clarity stands out. Not only is it a great car, but it comes with some great state, federal, and local incentives that significantly sweeten the pot.

Federal Rebates
For the time being, federal rebates for many hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles are still available. We’ll issue a disclaimer here: we’re in the car business, and we’re not CPAs or tax professionals. With that being said, we suggest speaking to an accountant about how best to take advantage of the tax credit on green vehicles when you buy the Honda Clarity.

California Green Vehicle Rebates
In contrast to the federal rebates, California’s rebate structure could charitably be called “byzantine.” Don’t believe us? Visit the state’s page on the Department of Energy’s Alternative Fuels Data Center. Bad news first: grab a cup of coffee, because you may be a while. The good news is, there are a number of state-level incentives, and your San Diego Honda dealer will help you navigate them.

Local Rebates
SDG&E and SCE both have their own rebate programs independent of those offered at the state and federal levels. The SDG&E Champions for Clean Air EV Rebate, for example, is available to teachers and first responders in the utility’s service area. SCE’s Clean Fuel Rewards Program rewards eligible drivers of plug-in electric vehicles a rebate.

So the power, efficiency, and style of the 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid are just three great reasons to consider this new Honda car. Between that and the incentives listed above, you potentially have tens of thousands more reasons to take a closer look. If you have questions, please call Pacific Honda at 858-694-1000, or just visit our showroom at 4761 Convoy St. in San Diego, CA.
