UK electric cars to get green number plates

Electric cars in the UK can have a green slash on their number-plates from autumn, paving the way for incentive schemes aimed at encouraging people into EVs. Click here to read the full story.

Owners of electric cars across the UK will be able to fit their vehicles with green number plates from this autumn, a move that is set to both further raise the profile of battery-powered cars, and pave the way for future incentive schemes that will encourage the take-up of electric vehicles.

Rather than being a fully green plate, EVs will have conventional white and yellow plates on their front and rear, but the plates will feature a green vertical flash on their left-hand side.

The green plates are being spearheaded by the Department for Transport ahead of a ban on the sale of all new internal-combustion engined cars from 2035, and the UK’s aim of becoming carbon neutral by 2050.
