Registration fees are by state. My state charges 1% "List Price" for 7 years(then 3/4% for 2 years, 1/2% for 2 years then $50 year 12) plus a weight penalty of $0.40 per 100 lbs. so the BEV "may" cost over $1000 more Registration Fees.

I say "may" only because both of my Rogues have the same list price even though 4 years different and different trim levels.

IIRC Illinois fees recently just got increased to about $151 from $98ish and people were mad. Pretty cheap compared to Iowa until cars get 12 years old. I'd take the $151 forever over 1% for 7 years, or 5 years since I don't buy brand new.
