Electric vehicles to receive green license plates
A standard to provide fully electric vehicles green licenses has been approved by the National Standardization Commission. This is in connection with a September 2017 decree by the Ulaanbaatar mayor to exclude fully electric vehicles from license plate restrictions and to allow them to drive on the bus lane.
Due to the fact that traffic cameras and some traffic police officers were not able to differentiate between fully electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles, drivers of fully electric vehicles received traffic tickets.
Therefore, any vehicle with a green license plate will not be included in the license plate restriction and will be allowed to drive in the first lane (bus lane).
In addition to the license plate changes for electric vehicles, public transportation buses will have yellow license plates and heavy load trucks will have black license plates according to the National Transport Authority.
The changes are in the process of being approved in the rules and procedures and must go through several processes before being fully implemented. Of the 847,414 vehicles registered in Mongolia, only 108 are fully electric.
