Do you have a dirty, loud fuel car? Then you will pay more for parking in 2023

No wait, that headline isn’t quite right. Because with a fuel car you will soon pay the normal parking rate. From next year it will only be the case that electric drivers will pay less. Yes, there will be a discount for people with an EV or a hydrogen car.

New government plan: municipalities may charge lower parking rates for electric cars from 2023. The Municipalities Act must be amended for this, State Secretary Vivianne Heijnen of Infrastructure and Water Management wrote to the House of Representatives.

“This gives municipalities an extra tool in their toolbox to work on cleaner air and less traffic noise in their city or village. I think that is important,” says Heijnen. “Depending on the situation in their municipality, they can choose whether they want to use this.”

Discount for electric cars also applies to parking permits

Dutch municipalities decide for themselves whether motorists have to pay to park somewhere and how much that costs. From next year they will therefore also be allowed to distinguish between fuel cars and EVs. Municipalities see for themselves whether they offer a discount on paid parking and parking permits, and how much that is.

Several municipalities have already indicated that they are interested in the new option. The government sees a discount on parking rates as an advantage that will hopefully lure more Dutch people to an electric car. Because the new measure does not apply to hybrids and plug-in hybrids.
