Electric Vehicle User Fee Adopted
Alabama is the latest state to adopt what is known as an “EV user fee,” a fee charged annually to EV drivers in response to a national decline in gas tax revenue. The fee in Alabama is set at $200 for all-electric vehicles and a $100 fee for plug-in hybrid vehicles. With less than 500 electric vehicles in the state of Alabama, these fees are punitive to potential and current EV drivers. For more on EV user fees, check out Plug In America’s summary of these fees.
