Can electric cars park for free?

Did you know that there are areas in the UK that offer free parking for electrical vehicle owners?


Sheffield and Milton Keynes councils introduced free parking for EVs with green parking permits, which allows for vehicles that have CO2 emissions of less than 75g/km to park for free in specific parking bays around the cities.

Some London boroughs also offer discounted or even free parking permits for residents. Boroughs include but are not limited to, Croydon, Hillingdon, and Westminster.

So, it is worth checking if your local area offers any incentives before purchasing an EV to allow you to save those pennies when making the switch.

If the area where you live offered free or discounted parking, would you be more inclined to shift to electric?
