Germany busts the internal combustion engine
It seems that Germany has had enough of its cars failing emission testings and is going to ban the internal combustion engine.
The country’s Bundesrat (federal council) has passed a resolution calling for a ban on new internal combustion engine cars by 2030. By then all cars will have to be electric or running on a hydrogen fuel cell.
It is not legally binding, but the Bundesrat is asking the European Commission to implement the ban across the European Union… so there is a chance it might happen.
The council also wants the European Commission to review its taxation policies and their effect on the “stimulation of emission-free mobility.” It could involve stronger tax incentives for buying zero-emissions cars, but it could also involve eliminating tax breaks for diesel cars in EU states.
It is starting to look like. what ever happens, diesels could be a think of the past.
