Apply for license plates for electric vehicles


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 from the outside via a charging cable, such as plug-in hybrid vehicles, and
  • hydrogen-powered vehicles, such as fuel cell cars.

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

Advantages for vehicles with e-license plates in road traffic are, for example:

  • Use of specially designated parking spaces,
  • Use of the bus lane.

These advantages differ between municipalities. Please check with your local traffic authority to see what applies to your place of residence. 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 markings and
  • red license plates (so-called dealer license plates).

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

Your vehicle must have an alternative drive or energy source.

  • Proof that it is a vehicle within the meaning of the Electromobility Act, for example on the basis of the registration certificate Part I (also called vehicle registration), the certificate of conformity or the data confirmation (English abbreviation: COC)
  • Registration certificate Part I
  • if applicable, previous number plates
  • for used vehicles: main inspection report
  • electronic insurance confirmation

Registration including stamping of the license plates: EUR 27,00
