Default Need Another Reason to Buy an EV?

Depending on where you live you might gain access to HOV lanes without having to schlep riders around. Californians have enjoyed this perk for years, but now it is expiring. However EVs will qualify for a new set of stickers based on emissions levels.

Default Re: Need Another Reason to Buy an EV?

Unfortunately the HOV status has never applied for Hybrids and won't for EVs in Oregon. As it is, there aren't too many HOV lanes on the Oregon highways, but almost all of the on ramps have an HOV line to skip waiting on the traffic lights.

However if hybrids qualified for HOV, about 1 of 7 cars in Portland could be in the HOV lane...so I doubt they'll change that law.
