Chevrolet announced today at the Los Angeles Auto Show that its Volt extended-range electric car will qualify for solo access to California's HOV lanes, a feature deeply desired by many of the state's car buyers.

A 'Low Emissions Package' will be fitted as standard equipment to all Volts sold in the Golden State starting "early next year."

No retrofit possible according to GM. Current owners, nothing you can do about it, hopefully you did your research here and weren't lied to by a misinformed salesman, and were OK with missing out on this in exchange for getting the car sooner. I was aware & decided I was fine with it, since I don't usually commute during rush hour, and only have an 11 mile one-way commute anyway. Keep in mind it's only a 3-year benefit, expiring Jan 2015, unless it gets extended like the yellow stickers were.

If you just ordered, I would cancel and re-order unless getting the car sooner is worth it to you vs. $1500 and a carpool sticker. Or perhaps try and negotiate a discount from the dealer if you can live without the sticker.
