Why Does It Cost More to Register an Electric Vehicle?

Episode 1827 (1:21:00)

Joe from Dalton, GA
Nissan Leaf

Joe has an electric vehicle, but he noticed that his license plate fees have gone way up. Leo says the rationale is that since he's not paying taxes buying gas, they have to make that up somewhere. So they raise the license plate fees. But over the long haul, he's still saying money over gas. Can he use a fast charger on his Nissan Leaf? Leo says he may not. They rely on Chattimo chargers. Use the trickle charger that came with the car at home, and a fast charger when on a road trip. Just make sure to get the right one.
