If ultra-low emission vehicles could display the fact that they are greener – by wearing a new green registration plate – then this would demonstrate their green credentials to others and create instant awareness wherever the vehicles travel.
Green Plates have been used in Hungary since 2015
Green registration plates are now a familiar sight in Hungary on the streets of cities such as Budapest. Helping to popularise the cleaner form of transportation in cities is something that is important for the environment, especially in densely populated city areas.
Plug-in Hybrids look like their petrol and diesel equivalents
As the majority of plug-in cars on our roads are currently plug-in hybrid derivatives of existing, popular diesel and petrol cars such as BMW 330, Mercedes C350, VW Golf, Passat, Up! Mitsubishi Outlander, etc – etc, most people simply are not aware of the fact that there are actually lots of these green, clean cars already on the road.
Popularise adoption of EVs by helping them stand out
The wide-spread adoption of anything new requires firstly the early adopters, then as things evolve more and more people begin to feel comfortable with the idea for it to be accepted and become mainstream. We believe if the cars were ‘seen to be green’ with high visibility #greenplates fitted to ultra low emission vehicles, people will quickly become more aware of plug-in cars and they would then be far more receptive to the advances and advantages of electric vehicles, both in running costs and being kinder to the environment and in the wider interests of public health.
