    Virginia publishes a list of cars that qualify for clean fuel plates which is a nice reference for new car technology. I learned about the cool plug in Cayenne for instance. Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles

    Aside from the obvious Tesla mistake to include the no more Roadster as a 2015 model and the not yet Model X, any other mistakes or other vehicles missing?

    Isn't this is a list of vehicles that qualify for the clean fuel plates in calendar year 2015, not vehicles produced in model year 2015? It doesn't seem like a mistake to me: there are plenty of Roadsters still out there and Model X will ship in this calendar year.

    A car in a given model year that's on the list for that model year qualifies forever. All the Honda insights qualify for instance but they're not listed in 2015 because there isn't any insight in 2015. Same with Lexus 250 and probably other hybrids that have been cancelled All the other cars on the 2015 model year list look to be current except the Roadster

    I'm not 100% sure what 'current' means in this case? Cars that can still be bought new from the manufacturer? Cars that have a new model coming out in 2015/2016?

    Renaults line-up might be worth adding either way: ZOE, Fluence, Kangoo ZE and Twizzy. Though I don't know whether they are available in the States or not.

    And what about the VW e-up and e-Golf? Or the Mercedes B-class ED, the Smart ED and the SLS AMG ED?

    If 2014 models count, the Rav4EV and FitEV should be on that list as well.

    The Ford Focus EV is missing from that list.
