Oxford recently launched its Zero Emission Zone, which charges all petrol and diesel vehicles, including hybrids, with electric vehicles not facing any daily costs.
Many involved in the project hope it will be successful with other cities taking note and applying the same measures, potentially resulting in more charges for non-electric cars.
Konstantin Sixt, Co-CEO of Sixt SE, said: “We are also investing heavily in the expansion of our range of e-vehicles and are aiming for a 12 to 18 percent share of electric and hybrid vehicles in our global fleet by 2022.
“We are broadly positioned and flexible at the same time. We offer premium, together with high efficiency.
