Japan has complete faith in its innovative strength. And sees all-electric cars as a threat to its economy. In order not to rely exclusively on electric batteries in engines, the five largest vehicle manufacturers in Nippon have joined forces to develop an alternative to the zero-emission battery.
One of the biggest challenges for switching to electric cars is the inadequate charging network. Drivers still have to spend far too long looking for a free charging point. If the sales figures for electric cars increase, the problem will automatically worsen.
There is currently only one low emission zone in Finland - in the city of Helsinki. The Low Emission Zone covers the entire city centre south of Hakamäentie Street. But there are special rules here.
The first winter pollution period was announced in Paris yesterday. The Paris air authority Airparif had predicted on Tuesday that fine particulate matter (PM 10) concentrations would exceed the legal limit of 50 µg/m³ on Wednesday: The concentrations were actually between 55 and 70 µg/m³.
The Flemish Minister for Transport and Mobility has presented an ambitious plan: From 2027, all new vehicle registrations are to be electric only. She assumes that the purchase price for electric cars will be the same as for petrol or diesel cars from 2025/26. Experts have doubts and fear difficulties for the used car market.
Rising energy prices are demanding more and more unpleasant decisions. In Great Britain, they have now been forced to replace electric locomotives with diesel locomotives. The line to Glasgow, where the climate summit is currently taking place, is also affected.
Eight defeat devices have been found in Mercedes-Benz's Euroclass 6 E-Class that disguise the true emissions of its cars.
Sweden would like to be a pioneer in environmental protection. To achieve this, there are three different types of low emission zones. A total of eight cities have an environmental zone, and Stockholm even has two different ones.
Since the introduction of the Low Emission Zone in Brussels in January 2018, the number of diesel vehicles has decreased significantly. The situation is quite different in France, however, where the first Low Emission Zone was introduced back in 2015.
Berlin wants to know exactly what is driving on its streets and who is polluting them. For this purpose, car registration plates are read and evaluated at various locations for a week. Will new diesel driving bans be introduced?
