Germany has decided to become the leading country when it comes to the sales of zero-emission vehicles. This may happen a lot sooner than expected. The Detroit Bureau states that Germany wants all future cars by 2030 to be hydrogen and battery powered, no exception. If these conditions are not met, new cars will not be allowed to be driven on highways and local roads.
Currently, most of the vehicles on Germany’s roads use petrol engines, and diesel engines. There are currently only 130,000 hybrid-electric vehicles, and 25,000 battery EVs registered. Germany also plans to lower its CO2 emissions by 80 to 95% once 2050 hits. We are very interested to see if these expectations will be met once the time comes. We also wonder if it will be that easy for people to give up on their loved diesel and petrol cars.
