Barcelona City Council has decided to charge electric car owners and users for recharging their vehicles at municipal points in the city. The measure will take effect on January 18, as published betevé.
The rates will depend on whether the person recharging the vehicle is a regular or sporadic user of these points. For regular users and individuals, a rate of 50 euros per year will be established, which two families may share and that will have a 50% discount the first year, so vehicle drivers will only have to pay 25 euros in 2021.

Barcelona has 500 charging points spread over numerous stations and car parks in all districts. In addition, the City Council of the Catalan capital has established a 75% discount on the tax on mechanical traction vehicles for this type of car and a free rate for parking in the blue zone spaces.
