Zapping Auto Moto Alpine A110 MP-RC test: a real racing car at a good price?
It is an understatement to say that the announcement from Paris town hall that it wanted to launch a vote on SUV parking in Paris was rather poorly received by many motorists. The objective of Anne Hidalgo and her entire team is to ensure that there are fewer of them on the streets of the capital. However, as we told you yesterday, the rules dictated by the city mean that a rather large number of vehicles would be affected by this measure, not just SUVs either. The AAA Data organization was commissioned by our colleagues from Echos to give a number. Unsurprisingly, it is high since this would affect around 900,000 cars in total, 892,336 to give the exact number.
16% of the Ile-de-France vehicle fleet
This represents approximately 1 vehicle in 6 in the Île-de-France region, which constituted the study area of AAA Data. As a reminder, the town hall plans to more or less categorically prohibit the parking of SUVs within the city (Parisians parking their SUV within their residential area will, for example, not be affected). Thermal or plug-in hybrid models weighing more than 1,600 kg as well as electric cars weighing more than 2 tonnes would be prohibited.
As Les Echos rightly notes, the municipality wanted to hit the latter harder than the government. In 2024, zero-emission models will still be exempt from the weight penalty. Paris City Hall’s regulations would affect a total of 18,982 vehicles, i.e. “15.5% of the Ile-de-France electric fleet”. And to think that, until now, the owners of these vehicles enjoyed free parking at all times and in all circumstances…
