LONDON: Germany pledged to cut carbon dioxide output by 80 percent to 95 percent by 2050 will force the country to radically reduce transportation pollution, according to Rainer Baake, a deputy economy minister.
He said that in order to meet that goal, all new cars registered in Germany need to be emissions free by 2030 at the latest.
Germany is lagging behind cuts to greenhouse gas that transportation emits, which account for a fifth of the country’s carbon dioxide pollution.
The sector needs to cut some 10 million metric tons of carbon dioxide over the next 5 years from a total of about 165 million tons last year.
Buyers of all-electric and hybrid vehicles can claim cash incentives, moves already in operation in countries including China, Norway and France.
The program may spark sales of about 500,000 electric cars by 2020, according to the Environment Ministry.
