Apply for vehicle registration plates for electrically powered vehicles

Service Description

You can apply for the E license plate for vehicles that have an alternative drive.

These include:

  • Pure battery electric vehicles,
  • Vehicles that are charged externally via a charging cable, for example plug-in hybrid vehicles, and
  • Hydrogen-powered vehicles, for example fuel cell cars.

You can recognize an E license plate by the letter "E" after the general vehicle license plate. If you want to enter environmental zones, you still need an environmental badge.

Advantages for vehicles with an E license plate in road traffic are, for example:

  • Free parking,
  • use of specially designated parking spaces,
  • use of the bus lane.

These advantages differ between municipalities. Please check with your local traffic authority to find out what applies to where you live.

Please note that there are different types of license plates for different purposes.

Of these, the following cannot be combined with the E license plate:

  • Short-term license plates,
  • export license plates and
  • red license plates (so-called dealer license plates).

Note: You can save up to EUR 2,000 on the initial purchase and registration of an electric vehicle if you apply for an environmental bonus.
