Alternative Fuel Vehicle (AFV) and Energy Efficient Plate Programs

Dedicated AFVs qualify for an AFV special license plate, which are available from the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT). Recognized alternative fuels are propane, natural gas, electricity, and hydrogen. There is no limit to the number of AFV license plates ADOT can issue. For more information, see the ADOT Alternative Fuel Vehicle website.

In addition, certain plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are eligible for the Energy Efficient license plate from ADOT. At any time, only 10,000 eligible vehicles may be registered for the Energy Efficient license plate. ADOT has reached its maximum limit of 10,000 vehicles and the issuance of Energy Efficient license plates to new program participants has been suspended until further notice (verified April 2017). For more information, including how to apply, see the ADOT Energy Efficient Plate Program website.

Alternative Fuel Vehicle Emissions Test Exemption

All-electric vehicles, hydrogen powered vehicles, and current model year propane and natural gas vehicles (NGVs) registered for the first time in Arizona are not required to complete emissions testing. This exemption does not apply after the first registration year. All AFVs, with the exception of electric, solar, and hydrogen powered vehicles, used to commute into Phoenix or Tucson are required to be emissions tested before they are registered. For more information, visit the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality website. (Reference Arizona Revised Statutes 49-542 and 49-542.05)

Reduced Alternative Fuel Vehicle (AFV) License Tax

The vehicle license tax for an AFV is $4 for every $100 in assessed value. During the first year after initial registration, the AFV's assessed value is 1% of the manufacturer's base retail price (compared to 60% for conventional vehicles). For each succeeding year, the original value of the AFV is reduced by 15%. The minimum amount of the annual AFV license tax is $5. For the purpose of this tax, AFVs include those powered exclusively by propane, natural gas, electricity, hydrogen, or a blend of hydrogen with propane or natural gas. See the Arizona Department of Transportation Alternative Fuel Vehicle page for more information. (Reference Arizona Revised Statutes 28-5805 and 28-5801)
