China Plans Special License Plate for New-Energy Vehicles

The Ministry of Public Security will introduce special vehicle license plates for new-energy cars to further promote industry growth and regulation in China.

The ministry has started soliciting public opinion on proposed designs for the plates after preliminary research.

An official said there are three draft designs for both small and large new-energy vehicles.

The designs highlight environmental protection with a dominant green color, include special marks, and adopt new anti-forgery technology and manufacturing techniques, it was said.

This aims to differentiate management of new energy cars, which enjoy strong government support amid emission control efforts, and provide easy visual identification.

China's current vehicle license plates usually consist of a one-character provincial abbreviation, a letter of the alphabet and five numbers or letters.

Proposed plates for new-energy cars will have an additional number to meet sector growth while retaining most other elements of the current format.
