All eligible vehicles must be on a qualifying list published by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). ADOT does not know or have any input in the EPA's timeline for updating the EPA's Eligible Low Emission and Energy-Efficient Vehicles list.
Customers with a prior qualifying (Honda Civic Hybrid, Honda Insight and Toyota Prius) vehicle that is currently registered with an Energy Efficient plate will be allowed to continue using their plate until they sell/transfer the vehicle. The Energy Efficient plate may only be transferred to a qualifying plug-in hybrid electric vehicle that is owned or leased by the same registered owner. Otherwise, the owner must surrender the license plate to any MVD or Authorized Third Party (ATP) office. If the owner would like to receive the remaining plate credit, the owner must submit a Plate Refund Request.
For additional information, please see the Special Plates and Placards FAQ.
- Electric Vehicle: If you have a vehicle that is totally electric powered, with no other supporting fuel supply, your vehicle is an alternative fuel vehicle and is eligible for reduced vehicle license tax and an alternative fuel plate, which allows you unlimited access to the HOV lanes. There are currently no limitations on the number of these plates that are issued.
