The Alabama Clean Fuels Coalition is asking citizens to help support the emergence of electric vehicles by pre-registering for its new license plate.

“The more people learn about EVs, and the more automakers put out new models that are attractive and affordable for people today, the more likely they are to want to consider purchasing an EV,” said ACFC president Michael Staley. “More EVs will lead to more support for infrastructure like charging stations that support drivers who’ve already transitioned to electric.”

The license plate includes the logo of Drive Electric Alabama, the ACFC campaign to raise EV awareness.

The license plate is an extra $50, with $41.25 going to the fund events and awareness initiatives.

In order for the plates to be printed, the organization needs 250 pre-commitments before September 2023. There have been 14 pre-commitments so far.

Pre-commitments can be made here.

Anybody can get the tag, regardless of whether they themselves drive or plan to purchase an electric vehicle.
