Minnesota does not offer any electric vehicle incentives or exemptions from HOV restrictions or annual inspections for electric vehicle owners. Minnesota recently passed legislation to charge electric vehicle owners an extra $75 per year to increase road maintenance revenue. Some groups claim this charge represents more than EV owners’ fair share.
