Can you link to what paint protection film you got?

Also, we mailed in our sticker form on Feb 28th, they still haven't cashed the check.

I sent in the application on ~Jan 30, finally got them late last week.

I don't need the privilege on a daily (or even weekly) basis, so this is what I did:

Put Gorilla tape on the back of the sticker protective material (you know, the stuff you're supposed to take off to expose the sticky side .. I left that on and covered it in Gorilla tape).

Then, if I need it, I use double-sided tape to stick it onto the rear flank. It sticks very well, but can also be peeled off .. off the car and off the gorilla tape. That way I retain the integrity of the sticker upon reuse. And if I really do need it permanently I can still peel it off and stick it on in the way that it's intended.

Got mine yesterday, too. Now since the I-Pace has short rear bumper overhangs, how do you fit two stickers in rear quarter panel? Can I just put one big sticker there?

I never could understand why they didn't use a special plate for EVs. It would have saved them money in the long run. Just have one of the CHARS designate the year of MFR in cases like California where they want to cancel your stickers every couple of years. Basically, it seems like they created a layer of bureaucracy to increase the budget and burn up EV program money faster.

I put the large ones on the left and right sides of the plastic bumper cover (painted).
I put a small one to the right of the rear license plate on the black plastic plate area.
I put another small one in the in the owners manual packet.
I will plead stupidity if they say anything. I'm not running a front plate either.

I couldn't find any documentation that requires one to put all stickers on the car, so I'm only going to put two one the back when I need to ..

These CAV stickers manage to make any electrified vehicle look ugly. I ended up placing these on the car yesterday with paint protection film.

I had them on my LEAF and barely used the carpool lanes in those 3 years.
RAV4-EV I just put the stickers in the glovebox if I should become desperate. Still in the glove box when traded for the I-Pace.
I-Pace I am just skipping it. Don't like the look.

Seems like for my commute it is just not needed. Weekends and other times the carpool is just stopped anyway same as the other lanes so no point. Or I have 2+ in the vehicle and no need for a sticker.

For some I understand it makes a huge difference.
