New York Grants HOV Lane Access to Ford C-Max Energi Drivers

December 12, 2012

NEW YORK – The all-new Ford C-MAX Energi has been approved for carpool lane use in New York by Clean Pass, a New York state-run program promoting reduced greenhouse gas emissions and fuel consumption.

Clean Pass recently ruled C-MAX Energi owners could drive the entire 40-mile stretch of the Long Island Expressway in the carpool lane. Click here to find out other vehicles that qualify for HOV lane access in New York.

To qualify, vehicles must be classified by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) as a super ultra-low emission vehicle (SULEV) and also be certified by the U.S. EPA to offer fuel economy of at least 45 mpg on the highway.

C-MAX Energi not only meets the CARB standard, but also offers EPA-estimated 100 MPGe combined – 108 MPGe city, 92 MPGe highway – along with a total range of up to 620 miles and an electric-only range of up to 21 miles, according to the automaker.

Clean Pass is a multi-agency pilot program partnering three New York state agencies – the State Department of Transportation, the State Department of Motor Vehicles, and the State Department of Environmental Conservation.
