Hybrid electric vehicle surcharge
A $75 annual surcharge for hybrid electric vehicles was implemented under the 2019-2021 biennial budget. A hybrid electric vehicle is one that is capable of using both electricity and gasoline, diesel fuel, or alternative fuel to propel the vehicle.
The surcharge applies to hybrid electric vehicles registered as automobiles or as light trucks up to 8,000 pounds gross weight, including dual purpose vehicles. It will be collected whenever the regular annual registration fee is paid for plate issuance and registration renewal.
The hybrid electric vehicle surcharge will be assessed for current registrations expiring September 30, 2019, or later and new registrations with a starting date of operation on October 1, 2019, or later.
