Regulations that allow electric and hydrogen cars to park for free (up to 90 minutes) in paid spaces in Reykjavik will change at the end of the year. The city's Environment and Planning Council approved a proposal at its meeting on Wednesday. 

City officials believe that enough residents currently use electric vehicles, and people no longer need to be encouraged.

The first rules on so-called "environmental disks" were enacted in 2007. They covered not only electric and hydrogen cars but also gasoline cars with emissions of less than 120 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometre driven.

Since then, the regulations have been tightened several times, and in recent years have covered only cars less than five meters in length and powered solely by electricity or hydrogen.

The city gave owners of such cars, disks that they could use when parking for 90 minutes at each stop.
