21 thousand cars have received the "zero emission" eco-labels in Spain.
According to General Traffic Inspection of Spain (DGT), there are about 21 thousand cars registered in Spain with eco-label "zero emission". Out of these, the top three leaders are Catalonia with 6 thousand labels, followed by Madrid 5500 labels, and Andalucia 2400 lables.
The purpose of this fleet classification is to categorize the most environmentally friendly vehicles and be an effective tool for municipal policies, both restricting traffic in high pollution episodes and promoting new technologies through tax advantages or benefits related to mobility and the environment.
According to this classification, there are four categories of vehicles:
– ECO (blue and green label), including Autogas cars. These are cars, light vans, vehicles with over eight seats, and freight vehicles classified in the Register of Vehicles as plug-in hybrid vehicles with range <40km.
– Zero emissions (blue label), which include battery electric vehicles, extended-range electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles with a minimum range of 40 kilometres and fuel cell vehicles.
– C (green label): gasoline passenger cars and light vans registered from January 2006 and diesel from 2014. It will also be for vehicles with more than eight seats and freight vehicles, both gasoline and diesel, registered since 2014.
– B (yellow label): gasoline passenger cars and light vans registered from January 2000 and diesel from January 2006. Vehicles of more than eight seats and freight vehicles, both gasoline and diesel, registered since 2005.
The classification of the park aims to discriminate positively the vehicles more respectful with the environment and to be an effective instrument at the service of municipal policies, both traffic restrictive in episodes of high pollution, and the promotion of new technologies through benefits Fiscal or relating to mobility and the environment.
The placement of the badge is voluntary. However, since it facilitates the quick identification of less polluting vehicles, we recommend that you adhere it in the lower right-hand corner of the front windshield, if available, or otherwise, anywhere visible on the vehicle.
