The ever-increasing oil price is just what the environmental groups need. A general ban on the registration of new cars with a high consumption value is now required.
Against the background of ever increasing oil prices, environmental groups are massively increasing the pressure on car manufacturers. A general ban on the registration of new vehicles with a particularly high consumption value is required. In a nutshell, this means: «Fuel guzzlers have to get off the streets», as the President of the Nature Conservation Union (Nabu), Olaf Tschimpke, told the «Berliner Zeitung». Only a ban, and not the planned fines, could force the auto industry to drastically reduce the fleet consumption of its vehicles.
The Verkehrsclub Deutschland (VCD) goes one step further and calls for a general ban on gas guzzlers. According to this, from 2015 only new vehicles should be allowed to be registered that are below the consumption values defined by the state. The European Union recently announced a general average value for all vehicles of 130 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer. This corresponds to a consumption value of 5.5 liters per 100 kilometers.
But the EU directives do not go far enough for the associations. “The technology for a five-liter car is already available today. But the automotive industry is hesitant to use them quickly for profit reasons,”criticized VCD automotive expert Gerd Lottsiepen. (AG)
The Ministry of the Environment is pushing for further stipulations and wants to give the unsettled car customers decision-making options. Critics are the plans
The supplier Bosch plans to bring the first robot taxis onto the market as early as 2018. But then there should still be drivers on board
The trend towards SUVs is unbroken. As a result, fuel consumption also increases. The lower demand for diesel vehicles also contributes to this
The sale of alternative drives is subdued. Now the low fuel costs are slowing down electric and hybrid vehicles even further. Demand
Jürgen Trittin believes that the planned suspension of vehicle tax for new cars has added value in terms of climate policy. So the plans for "blind people."
