Registration fees to go up for hybrid, electric vehicles

Registration fees for hybrid and electric vehicles will go up on Jan. 1, the Kansas Department of Revenue announced today.

The fees for electric-hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles will increase to $50 from either $30 or $40, depending on the gross vehicle weight, according to a news release from the KDOR.

All-electric vehicles’ registration fees will increase to $100 from either the current $30 or $40 fee, KDOR announced.

The changes were mandated by the Kansas Legislature, which passed Senate Substitute for House Bill 2214 in the 2019 legislative session. The legislation was originally introduced by the Joint Legislative Transportation Vision Task Force.

KDOR estimated there were about 2.5 million registered vehicles in Kansas, and a small percentage of those were considered electric or hybrid-electric vehicles.

The fiscal note on the legislation estimated the registration fee change will increase state highway revenues by $610,095.
