Zapping Auto Moto Hyundai Ioniq 5 N: contact with the 650 hp electric battery!
Sunday February 4, 42,000 Parisians forced nearly 900,000 Ile-de-France residents to break the bank. These first people voted for tripling the price of parking in the capital. Enough to impact many motorists in the region, including 129,000 in Paris.
This is what the company AAA Data estimates, which provided this result to Echos. 16% of vehicles in Île-de-France would fall within the scope of this new measure, according to them. This out of a total of 5.6 million vehicles in the area.
This will in fact concern thermal vehicles and plug-in hybrids of 1.6 tonnes or more. On the electric side, owners of vehicles weighing two tonnes or more will have to pay more for parking.
SUVs will therefore be far from being the only vehicles affected. And beware of those who don’t pay for their parking. They risk post-parking penalty (FPS) fines, the price of which will also be tripled.
Have Parisian elected officials underestimated the impact of the measure?
The figures provided by the statistical research company are much higher than those estimated by Anne Hidalgo and her environmentalist deputy for Mobility, David Belliard.
The latter thus judged that this would indeed concern “around 10% of the park” automobile of the capital. Enough to affect nearly 7,000 vehicles, out of the 70,000 parking tickets generated every day in Paris.
It remains to be seen who will ultimately be right. Remember, moreover, that certain owners of vehicles deemed too heavy will be exempt from the increase in question. These will include Parisian residents, taxi drivers, craftsmen, health professionals and people with reduced mobility. Parking will also remain free at night and on Sundays for all vehicles.

To sum up
The tripling of parking prices in Paris will affect many motorists. Perhaps even more than what was envisaged by the municipality, according to a study. This will concern both Île-de-France and the capital itself.
