Madrid has various schemes in place:

Madrid is one of 4 cities that have stated they wish to remove diesel vehicles from the city. As part of this, the city plans to increase the numbers of access restrictions for private cars.

NEW! The existing APRs (Áreas de Prioridad Residencial  = areas where residents have priority) will be extended and united into one big APR called Central Madrid. The APR Central Madrid will come into place in November 2018. It will be of informative character for the first two months and will be fully enforced from February 2019 on. The APR Central Madrid will cover practically the entire downtown area of Madrid.

The Grand Via is planned to be car-free by summer 2019.
There is also a plan to have a zero emission zone by 2025. It may be a traffic-free area. More details will be here when they are available.

For lorries over 12 tonnes there is no access on weekdays between 07:00 and 23:00 and Sundays and holidays at all times.
