Germany is going to push for all non-electric cars to be sanctioned by 2030 to meet the goals from the Paris global warming agreement. The agreement, which was made early this summer, requires every new vehicle to have zero emission.
Germany will also encourage all Europe nations to prohibit gas and diesel powered car by this year. This could prove a very hard task, not only because of the fact that some nations will have a difficult time applying these laws, but also because even if they achieve it, it will take about 20 years to get these cars off the road.
Germany has three important allies
According to Electrek, the Dutch and Norwegian governments are considering banning non-electric car sales, and only allow electric vehicles (EVs) by 2025. Also, another great news for Germany is that India just confirmed that is seriously thinking the same as Norway and Netherlands, with the little difference that it would start in 2030.
Tax non-electric cars instead of banning them
As reported by Digital Trends, the two largest automotive manufacturers in Germany, Daimler and Volkswagen, have already create their electric vehicle program strategies public, promising millions of EVs annually by 2025, which could be guarantee that this country will achieve their goals.
Although it is not the greatest scenario for Germany´s intentions, some governments are evaluating the possibilities of applying regulations that would tax gas-powered cars, instead of banning them. However, this is something that show a general commitment for making the world a better place to live, by meeting the goals from the Paris global warming agreement.
