Madrid, Spain: City officials have been struggling to get more environmentally friendly vehicles on their roadways. Recently they have implemented a more aggressive approach by charging customers to park on city streets based upon the fuel efficiency of their vehicle. Older models, as well as diesel powered will be subject to fees 20% higher than the current rates and hybrids will pay 20% less. As for electric cars, they will be able to park free of charge.
