SPANISH government prepares 100 million to replace 5,800 official vehicles with newer models.

A total of 5,794 official vehicles of the General Administration of the State are more than ten years old, the vast majority of them diesel engines. They are to be replaced by ‘green vehicles’ within the ‘Energy Chain Boost Plan of the automotive industry’.

The Government explained that it envisages the short-term renewal of the State Administration’s fleet of vehicles for zero-label vehicles, amounting to 100 million.

The second vice-president of the Spanish government and Minister of Social Policy and Agenda 2030, Pablo Iglesias, and the four other Ministers of United Nations Podemos who make up the coalition government have a total of 19 official cars, representing 13.1% of the total that is available to the Executive.

In total, according to data from last July of the State Public Sector Vehicle Registry, managed by the State Mobile Park, there are 5,794 vehicles, mostly diesel engines, with more than ten years likely to be replaced by ‘green vehicles’.
