True. All the vehicles are excluded from the payment of the tax of car propriety(called car tax and additional road tax) for the first next 5 years from the registration. From the sixth year is provided a reduction of 75%. Some regions, as Lombardy and Piedmont, have declared the exemption also from the following years.
Regularly in correspondence at charging stations in public areas there are parking reserved to electrical cars. Since January 2017 highway code provides dedicate parking for electrical vehicles.
The exemption of payment in municipal parking is regulated by the Town Hall. In Italy most of the cities/Town Halls provide it and it is certified by a license issued by the Town Hall. This exemption must be exposed on the windscreen to avoid fines.
