Not unless you get new stickers. https://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/carpool/carpool.htm
I am guessing you didn't read my post thouroughly, my stickers were put on the car in 2015. I went to that website and this is what I read:
"Red Clean Air Vehicle Decals The California DMV is now issuing a new "Red" decal for all qualifying vehicles pursuant to CVC §§5205.5 and 21655.9 that will be valid until January 1, 2022. The Red Clean Air Decal has the same eligibility requirements that were required for the Green and White decals. There are income requirements and other details regarding this new California Clean Air Decal program.
Owners of vehicles issued a Green or White HOV decal after January 1, 2017 may re-apply in 2019 for a new Red Clean Air Vehicle Decal that will expire on January 1, 2022.
All vehicles in the chart below that were not issued a green, white, or red decal prior to January 1, 2019, will qualify for the new Clean Air Vehicle decal. Information on the color of the new sticker and application date and process have not yet been released."
So I called their 800 number and they said I am not qualified to receive the red sticker unless I buy a new car ! So anyone who has an electric car, with white or green decal, before 2017 arte no longer permitted to use the carpool lane.
Kind of screws up my plan, I was going to get a new battery and keep my car, but in all reality I bought it to not sit in traffic, the added bonus of not buying gas was just icing on the cake !
