Parking rules for electric and hydrogen-powered vehicles

From 01.01.2017, each municipality decides for itself whether they want to introduce payment exemptions for electric and hydrogen-powered motor vehicles; cf. Regulations on conditional parking for the general public and enforcement of private parking regulations (parking regulations) § 34.

Pursuant to § 34, municipalities can introduce payment exemptions for electric and hydrogen-powered motor vehicles in municipal parking lots subject to a fee. This means that, as a general rule, electric and/or hydrogen cars must pay parking fees in the same way as fossil-fueled vehicles, unless the relevant municipality decides on a payment exemption.

In most municipalities, free parking for electric cars and hydrogen-powered cars will be time-limited, and there is a requirement to document the parking time. Our parking meters, (parkeringsur) / parking discs detect that the car is parked and automatically set the arrival time to the nearest quarter so that you do not have to set it.
