Does my new electric car still need to be inspected?

We recently received this question:

I just purchased a new zero emissions electric vehicle. Does it still need to be inspected?


Although EV's are exempt from the Pennsylvania EMISSIONS Inspection procedure, they are still required to be subjected to a Pennsylvania SAFETY inspection procedure every year.

Our keen-eyed officers have recently observed a rash of EV's being operated in our area without any Safety Inspection sticker on their windshield. This can be punishable by a traffic citation pursuant to Section 4703 of the Pennsylvania Vehicle Code Title 75.
