Alternative Fuel Vehicle (AFV) and Energy Efficient Plate Programs

Dedicated AFVs qualify for an AFV special license plate, which are available from the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT). Recognized alternative fuels are propane, natural gas, electricity, and hydrogen. There is no limit to the number of AFV license plates ADOT can issue. For more information, see the ADOT Alternative Fuel Vehicle website.

In addition, certain plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are eligible for the Energy Efficient license plate from ADOT. At any time, only 10,000 eligible vehicles may be registered for the Energy Efficient license plate. ADOT has reached its maximum limit of 10,000 vehicles and the issuance of Energy Efficient license plates to new program participants has been suspended until further notice (verified April 2017). For more information, including how to apply, see the ADOT Energy Efficient Plate Program website.
