“We need a quota for e-cars”

Zeit Online

Germany needs a quota for the share of e-cars in total car sales, the president of the Federal Environment Agency (UBA) Maria Krautzberger said, reiterating earlier calls in an interview with Zeit Online. Krautzberger also said that she is sure that a “blue badge” would be introduced eventually. This badge would give cities a legal basis for banning older diesel cars in order to bring harmful nitrogen oxide emissions within EU limits.
