Also, if just keeping up with regular EV/PHEV purchases takes 6-8 weeks now (to issue new decals), how long will it take at the end of the year to issue new stickers to 2 years worth of vehicles?
I concur. It makes much more sense to have the new red stickers go the full period as there is no sense in introducing the red stickers now if they have to be replaced in January. But the paper that came with it clearly says it expires end of year, which means it is only good for less than 1 year. I do hope they will have a simple online renewal that allows printing out a new paper granting the 3 year extension and no new sticker. But this is the government we are talking about, so I wouldn't count on anything sensible or efficient.
