Low-Speed Electric Vehicle Access to Roadways

A low-speed vehicle is defined as a four-wheeled vehicle propelled by an electric motor, combustion-driven motor, or a combination of the two and designed to operate at speeds of up to 25 miles per hour (mph). Low-speed vehicles may operate on roads with posted speed limits of up to 35 mph provided that the vehicle has not been modified to increase its speed above the original standard manufactured limit. Low-speed vehicles may only cross roads with posted speed limits above 35 mph if the intersection is equipped with a traffic signal. Low-speed vehicles must display a vehicle identification number; be titled, registered, and insured as motor vehicles; and meet safety standards specified in Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations, section 571.500. (Reference Kentucky Revised Statutes 186.010 and 189.282)

Alternative Fuel and Conversion Definitions

Clean transportation fuels include propane, compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied natural gas (LNG), electricity, and other transportation fuels determined to be comparable with respect to emissions. Propane is defined as a hydrocarbon mixture produced as a by-product of natural gas processing and petroleum refining and condensed into liquid form for sale or use as a motor fuel. CNG is defined as pipeline-quality natural gas that is compressed and provided for sale or use as a motor vehicle fuel. LNG is defined as pipeline-quality natural gas treated to remove water, hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide, and other components that will freeze and condense into liquid form for sale or use as a motor vehicle fuel.

A bi-fuel system is defined as the power system for motor vehicles powered by gasoline and either CNG or LNG. Bi-fuel systems are considered clean fuel systems. Conversion is defined as repowering a motor vehicle or special mobile equipment by replacing its original gasoline or diesel powered engine with one capable of operating on clean transportation fuel or retrofitting a motor vehicle or special mobile equipment with parts that enable its original gasoline or diesel engine to operate on clean transportation fuel.

(Reference Kentucky Revised Statutes 186.750)


Natural Gas Vehicle (NGV) Safety Regulations

Vehicles converted to operate on compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied natural gas (LNG), or a bi-fuel system must be inspected for compliance with applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS). The inspection must occur at the time of the conversion; every three years or 36,000 miles after the conversion, whichever comes first; and following any collision in which the vehicle was traveling at five miles per hour (mph) or greater. Vehicles originally designed and manufactured to use CNG or LNG must also be inspected for safety following any collision in which a vehicle was traveling at five mph or greater. Any person who performs NGV conversions must certify to the vehicle owner that the conversion does not affect any existing vehicle emissions or diagnostic systems, except as necessary for the conversion. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet may establish regulations to qualify persons to perform safety inspections; modify FMVSS for state use; and identify converted vehicles and ensure compliance with applicable regulations.

Electric Vehicle (EV) Infrastructure Support

Kentucky utilities joined the National Electric Highway Coalition (NEHC), committing to create a network of direct current fast charging (DCFC) stations connecting major highway systems from the Atlantic Coast to the Pacific of the United States. NEHC utility members agree to ensure efficient and effective fast charging deployment plans that enable long distance EV travel, avoiding duplication among coalition utilities, and complement existing corridor DCFC sites. For more information, including a list of participating utilities and states, see the NEHC website.


Electric Vehicle (EV) Fee

Beginning January 1, 2024, in addition to standard vehicle registration fees, EV owners must pay an annual fee of $120 and hybrid electric vehicle and electric motorcycle owners must pay an annual fee of $60.
