Good to know...
All current driving bans and further information are available in our Green-Zones App.
The German government also wants to nudge the logistics sector in the direction of green mobility. A new funding programme therefore supports both newly registered vans and trucks with alternative drive systems as well as old diesels that are converted. More than 500 million euros are available.
The Scottish whisky brand Glenfiddich wants to convert its entire fleet to biogas. This is to be produced from the company's own whisky waste and could thus save 250 tonnes of CO2 - per truck and year!
By 2040, there should be no more combustion vehicles in Lucerne. The city has also set itself ambitious goals for the energy sector and climate protection.
There are currently 5 low emission zones in Spain. These are in Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Valencia and Valladolid. Only the zone in Barcelona is permanently valid. The other zones are weather-related air protection zones and are only activated in the event of severe air pollution. Which vehicles are then banned is not generally specified. Depending on the degree of air pollution, the government decides which vehicles may continue to enter.
The German vehicle fleet is getting older and older. On average, the vehicles in this country are 9.6 years old. The perfect starting point for the conversion to electric - if the right incentives are created.
The current train drivers' strike has almost completely stopped passenger transport - and that during the holiday season. This shows that the alternatives to the car cannot be relied upon.
By the end of the decade, 50% of new cars in the USA are to be electric. Biden has signed an executive order and wants to invest 174 billion US dollars. The carmakers are behind the plan to remain internationally competitive.
The highest French court has sentenced France to a fine of millions. Air pollution in Paris and Lyon is too high. Despite the many measures around reducing traffic and tightening the rules in the environmental zones, the air is still enormously dirty and harmful to health.
The British climate envoy drives a diesel. Like many other politicians, also in Germany, she does not yet dare to drive an e-car - because of the lack of range and too long charging time. If even the politicians are not convinced, why should we be?
In the next few years, owners of old vehicles will have a hard time in Spain. The largest environmental zone in Europe is being introduced in Madrid. In the rest of the country, the number of low emission zones will increase 30-fold!
