The article mentions that of the 40k quota, 12k were issued just in the last 4 months alone. I believe that's roughly the total *US* sales in that same time period of the biggest selling PHEVs (PiP, Volt, Energi series).

I would bet that California dealers reserving them for unsold cars is a big reason behind the sudden surge in the number of issued green stickers.

For the folks that leased their Leaf: what do you put on the in Current Registered Owner section? Just got plates yesterday and am eager to send in my REG 1000 form.

Do you just put your name as it appears on your license, or did you include the leinholder (nissan) as well? Just want to make sure my application doesn't get rejected

thanks

You say you just got your plates so you should of received a perm registration with the plates you need to put whats on your registration and it must match, Nissan is not the Registered Owner.

I have read in some forums that you can apply for HOV white sticker while waiting for registration plates to come through. People have used two methods to achieve this:

1. Leave the license plate entry blank, and the DMV will figure it out from the VIN number.
2. Call up the DMV and get your license plate number.

Have folks in this forum succeeded in any of these methods recently. If yes, then which DMV phone number is the best one to get the plate numbers.

FYI, I saw a Tesla pulled out of the HOV lane today for apparently not displaying decals. It could have been for something else, I suppose, but there was really no other reason immediately obvious - we certainly weren't going fast enough for it to be speeding.

I think we all knew that this was a possibility, but it's the first time I've actually seen it happen. So bear this in mind if you're waiting for decals on a new purchase and are tempted to cruise the HOV lane!

I can let you know fairly soon - colleague took delivery of a Fiat 500e about 2 weeks ago.

So I guess I can actually say that it's a minimum of two weeks.

Got the Spark 8-12. Took until 10-18 to get the stickers. Of course the dealer* added a couple of weeks by getting the motive power code wrong, they put down Q rather than E, so I had to get them to correct that, which added about 2 weeks.

*(GM dealer that sells lots of Volts, which are classed as Q on the MP box.)

The good news is, I finally got the Volt back from the SO, she has a commuter lane she can save a half hour using, and our '11 does not qualify...

Mailed application with check around the same time and am still waiting for the check to clear. Something must be wrong, grrrrrr.

I'm glad I noticed and read (the end of) this thread though, as I've been wondering...
I think I just felt my paradigm shift.

2012 SL (One of the colors): 2-year lease, 2012+,
2015 S w/QC (A different color): 3-year lease, 2014+,
2017 SV (Same color as 2015 S): 3-year lease, 2017+, lower monthly than either above(!)
