Honda Models are New York HOV Clean Pass Approved





Honda Hybrids Earn a NYS HOV Clean Pass

Nowadays it seems that more and more reasons to move toward energy-efficient vehicles, and one of those reasons is to earn the state's HOV Green Pass. Here at Nardy Honda Smithtown, we carry a few hybrids vehicles that have already qualified for that list. They include:



What does HEV, PHEV, and Electric mean? Learn More About The Vehicles Below

The New York State Clean Vehicle Pass is a multi-agency program that allows vehicles of a certain level of efficiency and low-emission to use the Long Island Expressway High Occupancy Vehicle lanes during the peak travel hours of 6am-10am, and the hours of 3pm-8pm. For those of us who live and travel in such congested areas, an easier commute is without a doubt a great incentive to move towards a more energy efficient ride.

Now, we at Nardy Honda Smithtown are well aware of the fantastic efficiency of these vehicles, and we can't wait for you to get behind the wheel and discover their Honda driving experience for yourself. So, visit our Smithtown dealership and take a test drive today. We proudly serve the current and soon-to-be Honda drivers of Smithtown, as well as those drivers of Farmingville, NY, Commack, Middle Island Holbrook, and Kings Park. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us directly either by email or over the phone for more information.

Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) - Your Nardy Honda Smithtown Introduction

What makes a hybrid or plug-in hybrid model different from the gas-guzzling daily drivers you're used to operating? If this question has ever come to mind, then you're not alone.

Our team at Nardy Honda Smithtown outlines the differences in design, sustainable output and functionality for a complete understanding of hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), providing in-depth analysis through for a behind-the-scenes look at how things work.

With generally lower emissions and the ability to stay on the move for longer periods, most HEVs are typically powered by the duo of an internal combustion engine and one or two battery-synced electric motors. These under-the-hood configurations work in conjunction with one another, helping to optimize the ride quality and overall performance you experience at the wheel, delivering eco-friendly production you can depend upon. A regenerative braking process even allows your electric motor to harness energy with your brake pedal pushed down, "refueling" its battery charge accordingly.

Hybrid Electric Vehicles - Type and Design

Choose between mild and full hybrids based on how you want your vehicle powered. Mild hybrids can't power your car solely on electric inputs, instead utilizing a combination of gasoline engine production, battery and electric motor to push you ahead. With a full hybrid, featuring larger batteries and stronger electric motors, your vehicle can run just on a sole electric source for short distances and at lower travel speeds.

Also categorized as parallel hybrids and series hybrids, HEVs can function differently depending upon the nuances of their configuration. The former option links its engine and electric motor simultaneously to your vehicle's wheels for a mechanical coupling effect, while the latter selection only uses its electric motor to drive the wheels in plug-in hybrids specifically.

To learn more about HEVs and the science behind these respective electric and plug-in hybrid models, feel free to contact our team today! We can discuss noteworthy points of emphasis regarding design, preview our new Honda hybrid lineup, and schedule a test drive to experience HEV innovation in person.
