EVs could get all green number plates - YUCK!!


Don’t mind a subtle distinction and being able to use bus lanes but don’t feel like looking like the green lantern!

Electric cars could get green number plates to make them easier to spot Electric cars could get green number plates to make them easier to spot
Can't see that happening. I think there are or soon will be too many EV's to make it practical. Bus and Taxi firms have already come out very firmly against.
Probably part of a wider campaign to encourage the switch, it'd soon be turned off once the numbers were up and the EV market had the momentum it needed to achieve their climate change goals.

Sort the charging infrastructure.

Stuff like this, as well as driving in bus lanes etc is just garnish that no one is particularly clamouring for. The Government has to seriously commit to the charging infrastructure and incentives in order to get this to actually be a thing. New builds being made with zero charging infrastructure is inexcusable now.

If you “respond online” to the consultation you see their preferred options

Introduction of green number plates for ultra low emission vehicles

* BEV only (no hybrid or REX)
* green flash on LHS of plate
* optional (opt out), not compulsory
* only a visual/initial aid. EVs without it or ICEs with it won’t be treated differently
* enforcement using existing rules/methods, applied to number plate manufacturers
