    I was checking the CA list of cars for the green carpool stickers, and the 2012 Prius PHEV is now listed. Was it just put on there? I hadn't seen any message about it before.

    OMG! Yahoooo!

    I will take back all the bad things I said about government workers....they are awesome!

    Now if they can issue me a green sticker before I get my PIP, that would be great! :cheer2:

    It still says "pending federal approval".

    Has this already been "federal approved"?

    How about the California Clean Vehicle rebate? Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't see it listed yet. The Mitsubishi i-MiEV is listed as eligible and that car is not for sale yet either. Has Toyota applied?

    The Prius Plug-in is listed as the example for the Light-Duty Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle. It's then noted:



    The rebate amount from CA should be $1,500.00

    OK so what's the procedure for getting one of them new stickers? Is that in place yet?
    I remember running to the FastTrack office and then mailing something to the DMV when I got my 2006 Prius.

    Not according to CARB. It states: "Green Clean Air Vehicle Stickers pending federal approval will be available..." at the link you provided:

    40,000 stickers available starting Jan 12......
    And....qualifying vehicles purchased BEFORE Jan 12th are also eligible....
    Anyone have a guess on how soon they'll sell out?

    I haven't seen any Greenies out on the road yet.
    How many PIP's do you expect will sell in March?
