‘GREEN’ NUMBER PLATES LEGAL FROM AUTUMN

‘Green’ number plates to signify an electric vehicle will be legal to produce and to use on the road from the autumn, according to a statement fromTransport Secretary Grant Shapps.

The plates won’t be physically green, as previously suggested, but will have a green flash in the space previously occupied by the EU flag identifier.

The move is a small part of a plan to drive a ‘green economic recovery’.  The idea is that the plates will make it easier for cars to be identified as zero emission vehicles, helping local authorities design and put in place new policies to incentivise people to own and drive them.

A statement from the DfT suggests that drivers could benefit from local initiatives such as cheaper parking and cost-free entry into zero-emission zones where those with a green number plate will be recognised as eligible.

The plates will be identifiable by a green flash on the left-hand side and will be available for zero emission vehicles only.
