City of Palma begins electric vehicle trial

Palma already has incentives in place for electric vehicle owners, including a 75% road tax discount, exemption from parking fees within the city and a growing network of charging points located in municipal car parks.

The LEAF will be used as a pool car, giving the Council’s staff first-hand experience of using the technology as part of the fleet.

Gabriel Vallejo, Councillor of the Department of Transportation of the City of Palma, said: ‘The care and protection of the environment is shared by all departments of the City of Palma.

‘It is essential that those in the area of ​​mobility work to implement effective measures to reduce pollution levels and improve the quality of life of citizens. In this context, implementation of the electric car will be vital.’
