Germany is the paradise european car, the country of the motorways without speed limits, the country of the Nürburgring. But the petrolhead germans were exhausted the time. The country signed a few years ago a treaty in which they committed themselves to to reduce the emissions of CO2 of the country in a 40% with respect to 1990. The limit is 2020. By 2050, the global emissions of the country must be between 80% and 95% lower than in 1990. Time is running out, and the scissors point to the automotive sector in a clear way.
The country of the Autobahn without speed limits, at the Nürburgring, the great european sport… soon to be much more green.
Germany is also a country that has committed itself to prohibit vehicles from internal combustion by the year 2050, when Germany is committed to something, usually do. But the reality is that since 1990, while other areas of the country have reduced their emissions significantly, road transport is maintained at levels of more than 25 years ago. Which in a way is progress, as the fleet has since grown considerably. The land transport represents 20% of the total emissions of the country.
Rainer Baake, deputy minister of economy of the power, has stated that they are not clear as to reduce the emissions of the vehicles of heavy transport by road. But you need to somehow reduce the 165 million metric tons of carbon dioxide that vehicles internal combustion require. The solution is to reduce the emissions of passenger cars, to the point that all vehicles sold in Germany in 2030 will have to be zero emissions, we understand that electric or plug-in hybrids.
The widespread adoption of electric cars requires the development of a charging infrastructure still in its infancy.
To boost the sales of electric and plug-in hybrids, Germany introduced economic subsidies to their purchase, a program with which we expect that by 2020 is to sell at least half a million electric, although the ideal aim is to have in circulation a million electric and plug-in hybrids by 2020. Currently, in the park German mobile circulating to 25,000 electric vehicles and 130,000 hybrid, compared to 44.5 million cars internal combustion. A drop in the ocean, in fact.
it Is clear that the long-term goal passes by prohibitions to vehicles of internal combustion, which, unfortunately, will end up coming in one way or another. We are already seeing the ears of the wolf with the prohibition of Paris to the circulation of vehicles prior to 1997, or the plan of Formentera, just want to have electric cars on its roads. it is Only necessary that a great country engages in a firm with the zero emissions. That will be the point of no return, and we could reach it before it seems.
