Hybrid or electric vehicle registration discounts

Find out about the registration discount for hybrid or electric powered passenger cars.

Which vehicles get the discount?

The following vehicles are eligible to receive a $100 registration discount: 

  • Hybrid vehicles 
  • Hybrid heavy vehicles
  • Electric powered passenger cars (which run solely on electricity)

What about other vehicles?

Currently there is no discount available for electric heavy vehicles and electric motorcycles. Hybrid motorcycles don’t have a registration fee. 

How is the discount applied? 

The $100 discount gets automatically deducted from your registration fee and appears on your registration renewal notice. For hybrid heavy vehicles, if you pay registration on a conditional basis, the $100 discount will be calculated pro rata. 

The penalty for not clearly displaying a label is a defect notice or fine.

Changes to discounts from 1 July 2021

The 2020-21 Budget announced changes to registration concessions to apply from 1 July 2021.  For more information, please see our Zero and low emissions vehicles (ZLEVs) road-user charge webpage for more information.
