VW didn't release the 2017 eGolf until just about everybody else was shipping 2018 models to dealers. Most eGolfs sold in calendar year 2017 were really leftover model year 2016's.

I have a question similar to the previous poster. I have a 2016 egolf with a white sticker and I understand that only if the sticker was issued after 1/1/17 it can changed for a red one. However when I look at the DMV site for the list of vehicles eligible for a CAV sticker, the 2016 egolf is on the list. So does this mean that it is eligible if and only if I have never had a sticker for it before?

Thanks.

I saw at the dealer a 2016 White eGolf SE with Red stickers, so you have to tell them that your stickers were issued after 1/1/17. They won't give them automatically because they look at model year.

I have a 2016 but bought 3/2017. DMV sent me an application for red stickers, I balanced the $22 vs the 3 months I had left on the lease and how little use I get from HOV lanes...and did it anyway... more for the bridge discount than actual HOV lanes, those are as full as every other lane and clogged with Tesla 3 nowadays.

(and the red sticker sticks out like a sore thumb on my white car)

I also have the 2016 but leased it on Jan 2017. Just received my red one last week. I'm still trying to get used to the red on my silver e-Golf. :D

I just flew down from SEA and bought a used 2015 with white stickers that the owner said were expired. Boy that was cool being able to use the hov lane with only one driver. I can see why the owner wanted to get a new electric car to be able to get new stickers. If it gives you hours of your life back and you have the means to, why not?
