How zero-emission zones become a success

One of the biggest challenges facing the electrification of transport is the charging infrastructure. Even if more and more drivers opt for an electric model, it will fail in everyday life due to the lack of sockets on the road. One solution is sockets integrated into street lamps. In Berlin, they already wanted to test this by equipping some street lamps with plugs. In London and Arnhem, they are already further along.

Norway: 25 % luxury tax for electric cars

Anyone who has an electric car in Norway pays hardly any tax on it. This applied to 78 percent of new purchases made so far in 2021 and to 55 percent of purchases in the previous year. Norway thus leads the electric quota in Europe. The citizens of Norway will also have to hurry, because from 2025 onwards, no more passenger cars and light commercial vehicles with internal combustion engines will be allowed to drive in the country.

Uber & Co. are environmentally harmful

On the whole, driving services are considered environmentally friendly because they often use newer and therefore more economical vehicle models than private users with their cars. Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh (USA) have now found out that they are not nearly as clean. This is mainly due to the empty runs, for which a lot of fuel is consumed without economic benefit.
