The Transport Secretary has announced that green number plates for electric vehicles are set to be introduced across the UK from as early as the autumn to encourage drivers to make the switch to zero emission vehicles. The plates will make it easier for cars to be visually identified as zero emission vehicles, helping local authorities design and put in place new policies, such as zero emission zones, to incentivise people to own and drive them.

This follows the conclusion of the consultation, led by OLEV, on the introduction of green number plates.
