Forget the speed limit!

Auto News

A maximum of 130 kilometers per hour on the highway? Actually, a reasonable proposal – but not the most important. If in doubt, full throttle should be allowed to remain. The main thing, the car industry creates the transition into the electric age.

The Autonation is applied, for days. Control Tempo, up, down! The next disaster, according to diesel scandal and a driving ban. Eco-radical life, apparently your ban is delusional. They are calling for a General speed limit of 130 kilometers per hour on highways and want to increase the tax on petrol and Diesel to 52 cents.

In fact, a government Commission had just prepared for climate protection in the transport a couple of suggestions. However, the rejection submitted by the ADAC on the FDP up to the Federal Minister of transport, Andreas Scheuer (CSU). The disqualified the plan is the responsibility of the games of the own group of experts as “neither socially nor economically”. In the process he had set in the first place with the concept apart.

Suggestions are useful for the automotive industry

This contains so many good suggestions that one could do without the speed limit. The speed limit would be useful – but the debate has assumed hysterical traits that they adjusted the view on the really important reforms in the transport.

The authors, including researchers from the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, not only to reduce finally, the greenhouse gas emissions of the car fleet. For Scheuer and his predecessors have done far too little.

In addition, the professionals want to strengthen the German automotive industry. Their biggest enemies are not the German environmental aid or the nature and biodiversity conservation Union, but their biggest enemy is the competition from California and China, the works of the great Transformation of the automobile. This includes the drive, will be electric, Autonomous driving systems and the digital networking of the cars.

Driver of all-terrain and more figures should car

Volkswagen, BMW and Daimler are in a dramatic situation: you urgently need to find customers for their new electric cars. The Manager understood that. VW wants to invest in the next few years, 30 billion euros in the construction of future-oriented cars. Otherwise, the (almost) would do only the Chinese. Hundreds of thousands of Germans threatened with the loss of their jobs. It is not surprising that in the choir of those who have been outraged by the proposals of the Commission, was missing a group: the car companies.

The policy needs to help you to bring the new cars to the customer – the company: cars with combustion engines have to be unattractive, and those that fit in the new world, more attractive.

The higher price of fuel is not antisocial

The experts suggest higher taxes on gasoline and Diesel, as well as a whopping premium for electric cars. What is closer to collect the money from the car drivers, the fuel-guzzling all-terrain buy the car?

In the year 2030 – if the reforms are to have their full effect – such a policy is not anti-social. The car market will look different. There will be electric and semi – electric cars-cheap-Used -in need of no or little Fuel. The drivers of these cars have higher fuel-be to control anything.

Today, the Federal government must explain to the car people quickly, what are some of the upheavals in the industry. And that the mobility behavior of the citizens will change.

Speed limit does not bring the climate much

The speed limit is in this concept, a building block of many. The win for the climate in comparison to other measures is not large. One to two million tons of greenhouse gases could be saved, with a total reduction of around 54 million tonnes of CO2.

The speed limit could be dropped, if the citizens support other plans of the climate Commission. Especially since the dream of a fast Driving is becoming increasingly an Illusion. The more people with the car are on the road, the less likely is on pace to 200, and more speed.
