    I did the same thing - same results so far.

    I did get a confirmation e-mail though and it said they will review it and contact me in 3-5 days

    ...But I didn't send any documentation... still don't have registration

    I filled it out and got the confirmation, and check about 10 days later for my Rav4 EV. Make sure that you include all the documentation they request.

    Yeah, it's been a couple years since I've done this.... I need to wait to get my registration from the DMV before I can submit the paperwork correct?

    You have to have a tag number (license plate) to complete the paperwork. So the sooner you get your info to the DMV the quicker you can get the CA rebate in hand.

    Edit..................

    My mistake, it was the HOV stickers that required the tags. Tommy's post below is correct.

    FWIW, I filled out my paperwork and submitted a copy of the New Vehicle Dealer Notice Temporary Identification form that the DS attached to the front windshield at time of my delivery. I called the CVRP staff (858.244.1177) to confirm this was an acceptable document for the "Proof of temporary or permanent vehicle registration" requirement listed below and the staff confirmed it was. Different advise is being given out on the forum and I wanted to double check I was ok so I should know for sure in about 10 days I guess. I do know it can take up to two months to get a permanent registration from the DMV and I didn't want to wait until I had that form of "proof" as the funds are being depleted alot faster with all the S' being delivered. Below is the requirements in the email they send with the application to sign:

    Good Luck!

    I just got my application. I need to get the paperwork from Tesla though that is required. I don't have the documents signed by them and me in ink.

    I used the DocuSign document i signed via the email link Tesla sent, it's a 40+ page document, however pages 2-5 are the MVPA (Motor Vehicle Purchase Agreement) which is the legal agreement between purchaser and Tesla and has the electronically generated signatures on the document that are valid and legally binding as if you and the Tesla representative penned them yourselves.

    Thanks for the tip about the docusign copy - has Kyle's signature on it so good to go. Submitted my electronic form. Looks like there is still ~$4 million available. Rebate Funding Status

    I applied Nov 5 after a Nov 4 purchase of the Rav4, and got the check Saturday, Dec 14.

    I hand delivered the application and photocopied the required documents at the CCSE office.

    I filled out the online form and within a couple of days received the email w/application and requirements. I sent in the copied stuff and signed app last Monday. Today I received an email indicating that my application was approved and that I should receive a check within 60 days.

    Well, the "remaining funds" is $8 million but $4 million is reserved so that leaves $4 million for new buyers.

    I got my email confirmation today that funds are reserved for me. I submitted the online application a few days ago. So, tonight I'll do the paperwork and get it on its way!

    Same here. Need to peel the reg sticker off the window and make a copy. Then drop it all into the mail.

    I put my check in the bank today. No problems at all, took about a month: Got an email saying my paperwork was approved, then another week and the check came.

    I don't think there's any overlap between "remaining funds" and "currently reserved", based on the pie chart on the same page. ("Allocated" in the pie chart is equal to "reserved" plus "issued".)

    As of today, there's $7,918,279 remaining. But that's only 3,167 rebates at $2,500 each. Hope there's still some left when I get my 60kWh S.

    Looking at the remaining funds available, I'd guess that the CVRP rebate will run out in February or March (~$6.7M available, an average of 1500 applications per month going forward averaging $2k/application). If that's the case, has anyone heard of additional funding being allocated before the rebate funds run out?

    Alternatively, if additional funding comes in for the FY13/FY14 year, could a car bought before July 1, 2013 apply for FY13/FY14 funds? Looking at the CVRP requirements page, it looks like that may be a possibility.
