California is a leader in reducing emissions from vehicles. The state has numerous regulations in place to protect the environment. At the same time, it rewards those who choose alternative fuel vehicles with less or zero carbon emissions. Anyone buying a hybrid or electric model will appreciate the benefits.
California allows exceptions to the rules for drivers in the HOV lanes if they own an alternative fuel vehicle. If you own a hybrid or electric model, you can drive in the diamond and carpool lanes even if you’re traveling by yourself.
You also don’t need to pay the tolls for the High Occupancy Toll (HOT) roads. You can save time and money to reach your destination. Before you’re allowed to travel on either the HOV or HOT roads, you must shoe that you qualify with a decal for a Clean Air Vehicle, which you can get from the DMV. Just visit the DMV website to find out whether you are qualified for the white or green decal.
Another bonus when you drive one of these models is free parking in some of the major cities, such as Sacramento, San Jose, Santa Monica, and Hermosa Beach. The DMV website will let you know if your vehicle meets the requirements for free parking in those areas.
You’ll find other benefits to owning one of these models. For instance, you can receive $1500 if you retire your traditional vehicle as a trade-in for a hybrid or electric. You can use this money to reduce the price of the vehicle you’re purchasing.
You can continue to save with car insurance. Many California insurance providers offers special discounts for alternative fuel vehicles, such as hybrid auto discount, low-mileage discount, alternative fuel vehicle discount, and others. Ask about these discounts when you shop for a new policy.
While California offers some special discounts when you choose a hybrid or EV vehicle, other advantages exist no matter where you live. For instance, you don’t have to pay at the gas station when you fill up because there is no need to stop with an electric model. When you drive a hybrid, you’ll find you’re making fewer stops which also saves money.
Maintenance is another area you might not think about. You will have less maintenance with an electric vehicle because you don’t have an engine to service. This means no oil changes, no spark plugs, and other tune-ups are unnecessary. Tires are your main area to be serviced with these vehicles.
You can find your new alternative fuel vehicle at Nissan, such as the Nissan LEAF. We’ll help you finance your purchase with our in-house finance department. We’ll answer your questions about the technology and systems on these vehicles to help you select the right model for your lifestyle. Stop by Premier Nissan of San Jose for your first or next hybrid or EV model.
