Default Government Approved Electric Vehicles will get Green Number plates

Electric vehicles in future will be getting green number plates, these vehicles will be eligible for benefits like concession on tolls, preferential parking and more.
Good move to boost electric vehicles sales.

Quote:
“The government has approved distinctive green license plates for electric vehicles in order to encourage people to use electric vehicles," Nitin Gadkari, Minister of Road, Transport and Highways, told PTI. It will be the fifth type of license plate meant for civilian-owned vehicles in India.
The green license plate would help the drivers of these vehicles get privileges such as concession in toll charges, preference in parking areas and be allowed to enter congested areas. The step has been taken to promote the adoption of EVs in the country.

Every little drop of water is needed to fill the lake. Good step even if a simple one. It helps broadcast the message that green is in and green is important in Govt policy.

Green number plates for EVs get green signal from MoRTH.

Quote:
The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways today announced that all battery operated vehicles (electric vehicles) will now exhibit green registration mark. For transport vehicles the number plate will have yellow font with green background and for all other vehicles white fonts on green background

Green font on white or yellow background will be less easily readable than the proposed scheme.

Just spotted two Hyundai Kona's with regular HSRP (white background with black letters) as opposed to Green ones in the post above.

I was expecting to see the HSRP in green actually.

Any pictures? The Kona is available with a petrol engine and a hybrid as well outside India. Did you see the front or the back? Did it have a regular radiator grille at the front or a closed-off one like EV on sale here?

Couldn't click any pictures, zoom'ed past me at 100 kmph and by the time my mobile realised I was trying to switch on the camera, the Kona was off my sight.

Yes, it has both the number plates (HSRP) were in white and was the closed-off one (EV) that is being sold here.
