EV Sticker for Number Plates

Post by Johny » Thu, 14 Feb 2013, 20:26

I had a response today from Vic Roads online enquiry system (submitted enquiry on the 7th Feb). No, they don't provide EV stickers.
The folks who run the Vic EV Trial kindly sent me out two of their stickers - now I have to decide whether to replace my 47 year old number plates before sticking them on. Vic roads want $149 for a set of black and whites.

Edit: damn keyboard - won't type what I think

Hi all - Bryce here (new to AEVA, but have been working on/doing EV conversions for about 5 yrs).
I took the quick and painless route for my recent EV purchase and just had some made. Did 5 sets to meet their minimum order, have 2 sets left. Rugged reflective stickers made to the VicRoads reg. If anyone wants them - cost me $8.80 each, you can have them for that.
Cheers
Bryce

48B Electric powered passenger cars
An electric powered passenger car must have
fixed conspicuously to the front and rear number
plates a label that is—
(a) made of durable material; and
(b) at least 25 millimetres wide and
25 millimetres high; and
(c) mounted as a diamond; and
(d) reflective blue; and
(e) marked "EV" in capital letters at least
6 millimetres high.
Is this specification on the Vicroads website? I can't find it. If not where did it come from?

Happy to help Leigh!

Will post a notice if the EV group do a batch as a (small) fund raiser. (Not a lot of call for them it appears from the fist batch I funded as a test :)

Cheers

Hi there - is that 4 stickers = 2 cars worth, or 4 cars worth? Either way, I'll see what price he'll give me for getting a bigger batch made. Will work out the price per set and get back to you. (NB: price will be worked out on cost + $2 for the EV group).

Cheers

Hi all - have had enough requests to justify sourcing a new set of Victorian spec EV number plate stickers. Turned out to be a bit cheaper in slightly larger quantities!

One pair for $10, including postage.

All profits to the EV group. (Not sure we'll make our fortune selling them though). :)

Cheers
Bryce

Bryce, I'm interested in 4 stickers (2 cars). If available, how do I order/pay for them.

Happy to do EFT, Paypal or Credit Card, whatever is easiest.

Hi Wellsey - might be two problems here: the stickers are VicRoads spec, so not sure if they are suitable for Canberra? Other is I am not a business, am getting them made/selling them on behalf of the ATA Melb EV branch - we don't have EFTPOS or PayPay!

Cheque or cash is about all I can offer.

If anybody wants some, either post here or PM me. Will then PM my home address for sending.

(Will try to make it to an AEVA branch meeting one of these days and bring them then - but Fridays are a bad night for me!).

Cheers
Bryce

Maybe when you come to the AEVA AGM & the Canberra International EV Festival in October we can catch up then Image

It would be good to get AEVA members from around Australia to visit or better still bring their EVs with them. This years is the Canberra Centenary so we're trying to make the event as big as possible.

We've had EV owners from Sydney and Victoria bring their vehicles in the past, but more the merrier.

Regards
Brad

Hi Bryce --

I realise it's been a while, but if you have any of those stickers left, I'd love a set.
