Do electric vehicles belong to motor vehicles? Do you need a license plate?

With the introduction of the new policy, there are more and more topics around electric vehicles. Many people have doubts to varying degrees. The common questions are whether electric vehicles belong to the category of motor vehicles and whether they need to be licensed. In order to avoid being stopped by traffic police when traveling, today's Xiaobian will answer these two questions for you? Let's have a look!

First, let's look at some important standards of the new national standard. From the perspective of the new national standard, the national standard electric vehicle must meet the maximum speed of no more than 25km / h, the vehicle mass of no more than 55kg, the battery voltage of no more than 48V, the motor rated power of no more than 400W, and must have pedal riding function. If it does not meet one of them, it will be defined as an electric vehicle exceeding the standard.

Let's look again. If it is a national standard electric vehicle, it belongs to a non motor vehicle without licensing. However, if the electric vehicle exceeds the standard, it will be divided into right motorcycles and electric mopeds, which belong to motor vehicles and need to be licensed.

However, after the introduction of the new national standard, the industry has also been left with an 11 month transition period to digest the electric vehicles that do not meet the standards and have been sold on the road. The specific implementation depends on the local actual situation and regulations. Each region is a little different, such as replacing the old with the new, natural scrapping, discount repurchase and issuing scrapping subsidies, Gradually eliminate these illegal electric vehicles.

In general, if the new national standard is implemented, the over standard electric vehicles belong to motor vehicles and need to be licensed, while the national standard electric vehicles are still non motor vehicles and do not need to be licensed. However, due to different regulations in each place, there may be some differences, depending on the local regulations. In addition, whether electric vehicles can be licensed is also related to whether electric vehicle enterprises have 3C certification and electric motorcycle qualification. Therefore, it is recommended that users try to choose brands with 3C certification and electric motorcycle qualification to avoid the risk of failure to license.
