Source: Federal Association for the Environment and Nature Conservation Germany BUND traffic expert Jens Hilgenberg (Simone Neumann) “The seventh car summit in the Chancellery ends without results. Because this unconcrete, common understanding between the federal government and the auto industry for the development of a master plan for the expansion of the charging network in Germany can not be regarded as a result. Anyone who wants to unite climate protection and employment security must have goals and want to achieve them with clear guidelines. However, the German government does not seem to have any plans on how to shape the forthcoming change towards the e-car, nor what additional measures have to be taken to reach the agreed climate targets in traffic of minus 40 to 42 percent CO2 in 2030. Overdue and fast-acting measures such as the end of diesel subsidies, the introduction of a kerosene tax, a malus regime for the purchase of fuel guzzlers and the introduction of a general speed limit of 120 km / h on motorways must come. But instead of discussing a change in mobility, the Federal Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer presents fake solutions such as synthetic or biogenic fuels for road traffic as future options. And that, although it is not clear where the quantities described should come from, nor how they can be produced in accordance with the Federal Government’s sustainability strategy. It is significant that Federal Transport Minister Scheuer is still unwilling or unable to present the 50 measures he has announced in the media to meet the sector target in transport of minus 40 to 42 percent CO2 by 2030. It is clear to the BUND that Germany has to become world champion, especially in the three disciplines of traffic avoidance, modal shift and traffic improvement. “More information on general mobility about car trafficPress contact: Jens Hilgenberg, BUND-Verkehrsexperte, Tel .: (030) 2 75 86-467, jens .hilgenberg (at) or BUND press office (Sigrid Wolff / Judith friend / Heye Jensen), Tel.
