Elec­tric ve­hi­cles to re­ceive green li­cense plates

The UB Post - - Domestic - By B.CHINTUSHIG

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.
