What is a Green Number Plate?
As of the 8th of December 2020, if you buy a new fully electric or hydrogen fuel cell car you can also have your car fitted with a so-called ‘green number plate’. These have a green flash on the left-hand side of the reg plate to indicate the car’s zero tailpipe emission credentials.
You can opt out of having a green flash on your plate if it’s not to your taste, but dealers are likely to fit them as standard on newly-sold electric cars. At the moment, they’re only a cosmetic item rather than allowing any certain EV privileges.
