BMW i3 qualifies for both green and white HOV stickers in California

BMW buyers tend to have enough cash on hand to be buffered from the concept of “sticker shock,” but the term may take on a different meaning when it comes to the German automaker’s i3 plug-in vehicle and its classification by California clean-air regulators.

The first i3 EVs are set to be sold in May, and some are questioning if the new car will be eligible for the state’s white stickers or green High-Occupancy Vehicle lane stickers, both of which allow for solo-occupancy in HOV lanes. California gives out white stickers to some types of battery-electric vehicles, compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles and hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles, and there’s currently no limit on the number that can be given out. The green stickers, which are applied to other battery electrics as well as some plug-in hybrids, are limited (there are currently about 15,000 left) and will likely run out within the next year or two. The i3’s status is uncertain because of it has an optional gas-powered range-extender.
