I don't see any reason why Tesla would be excluded for 2022. What is a model year as far as Tesla is concerned anyway?
Agreed and, yes the Tesla model-year can be fuzzy compared to traditional manufacturers.
I am not sure how accurate and up-to-date that online list of eligible vehicles is. For example, the lack of hybrids on the list (in the early years) surprises me.
Meanwhile, the (California Legislature) politics of who gets what pro-environmental incentive is frustrating to me.
