SUV parking: here is the detailed list of models that will pay more!

As you probably know, the City of Paris is organizing a citizen vote for the city’s residents on February 4. They will have to say whether or not SUVs will have to pay more for parking in the city. It is a vote and a proposal which has not finished generating a lot of ink. Indeed, the Paris town hall wishes to change its parking policy. She wants to put to the vote a “very significant increase” in non-residential parking rates for SUVs and 4x4s. According to the city, this proposal responds to issues of security, sharing of public space and pollution. The list of SUVs that would be affected by an increase in parking rates According to Paris town hall, the SUV is a more polluting vehicle, which consumes much more and which is more dangerous in the event of a collision compared to a standard vehicle. To differentiate between a “standard” vehicle and an SUV, the town hall has decided to use the weight argument. All thermal or plug-in hybrid vehicles weighing more than 1.6 tonnes and electric cars weighing more than 2.0 tonnes are concerned. Everyone will judge… In the meantime, here is the detailed list of SUVs concerned: Marque Model Version Poids (kg) Alfa Romeo Tonal All versions From 1600 to 1950 Alfa Romeo Stelvio All versions From 1660 to 1830 Audi Q3 All versions except the 35 TFSI 150 From 1695 to 1815 Audi Q3 Sportback All versions except the 35 TFSI 150 From 1700 to 1775 Audi Q5 All versions From 1,810 to 2,150 Audi Q5 Sportback All versions From 1,830 to 2,150 Audi Q7 All versions From 2,130 to 2,275 Audi Q8 All versions From 2,175 to 2,390 Audi Q4 e-tron All versions From 2,210 to 2,125 Audi Q4 e-tron Sportback All versions except the e-tron 40 2 090 Audi Q8 e-tron / Q8 e-tron Sportback All versions From 2,510 to 2,650 Audi E-tron All versions From 2,445 to 2,555 BMW X1 All versions except 18I/20I/18D From 1655 to 1860 BMW IX1 xDrive30 313 ch 2 085 BMW X2 All versions except sDrive20I From 1600 to 1695 BMW IX2 xDrive30 313 ch 2 095 BMW X3 All versions From 1875 to 2085 BMW IX3 M Sport 286 2 270 BMW X4 All versions From 1890 to 2095 BMW iX All versions From 2,440 to 2,659 BMW X5 All versions From 2,265 to 2,510 BMW X6 All versions From 2,260 to 2,395 BMW X7 All versions From 2,490 to 2,600 BMW XM Label Red 2 795… The most telling example and the most covered in the various media is the case of the Peugeot 3008. Indeed, in the thermal version, the Peugeot 3008 passes through the drops since it weighs less than 1.6 tonnes. On the other hand, in the plug-in hybrid version, the weight of the batteries takes it above the threshold of 1.6 tonnes. This version will therefore have to pay more for parking if Parisians were to vote for it on February 4. A huge joke since in the hybrid version, the 3008 consumes and pollutes less than its brother with a simple thermal engine. And examples like this are legion. If the argument of pollution is difficult to accept, there remains that of safety. To know if SUVs cause more fatal accidents in France, we must then compare the evolution of the number of deaths on the roads. Knowing on the Paris town hall website, it is written: For three decades, the average size and weight of cars in France have been increasing, taking up more and more space on the road, sidewalks and public spaces in general: in less than thirty years, cars have become heavier. almost 250 kilos. The average weight of a vehicle was 975 kg in 1990, today it is 1233 kg. So, if heavy vehicles are more dangerous and cars have been gaining weight for more…
