In response to what it’s calling a “climate emergency,” one district in the United Kingdom plans to offer free parking for electric vehicles. Traditionally-fueled vehicles will continue to pay to park.
The Warwick District Council announced the plan yesterday, offering parking permits at no charge to drivers of EVs; it appears hybrid cars do not qualify for the offer. The cost to park for other drivers will increase slightly, at least for stays of more than four hours. The Council said the plan is designed to get people thinking more about buying electric-powered vehicles and driving less overall.
