Small bit of good news in CA for the 2016 Gen II Volt:

Looks like prospective PHEV customers may very well have access to more green HOV stickers in California, pending signing of the bill by Governor Brown. The current limit of 70,000 has nearly been reached, but the legislature passed AB-95 which allows for 15,000 more stickers. This is good news for GM since both the 2016 Gen II Volt and 2016 ELR will be released later this year, and the green stickers are an added incentive for many prospective CA buyers (although not everyone, since HOV lanes are getting rather clogged in some places).
