New York approved the Clean Pass sticker for the 2013 C-Max Energi on October 24th, 2012. The C-Max Hybrid does not qualify for the program. Ford published a press release on the New York Clean Pass sticker earlier this week. The Toyota Prius C and Liftback qualify but the Prius V does not qualify. The Clean Pass sticker is required for a single occupant to travel in the HOV lane along the Long Island Expressway. A good site to find possible C-Max Energi incentives for other states is the Nissan Leaf incentive page.
