Danish prime minister: ban on petrol and diesel'

The Danish prime minister Rasmussen wants that from 2030 no cars with a petrol or diesel engine more sold in his country. The ban also applies to hybrid models.

From news coverage from Reuters shows that the Danish prime minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen has said that what it regards from 2030 no new cars with a petrol or diesel engine more be allowed to be sold in his country. "I am a proponent of cars, but they need the environment not destroy it," said the Danish government in front of the media. That means that - if it were up to him would be - from 2030 only fully electric cars may be registered. Hybrids from that year-also from the inventory, and more.

Denmark wants the sale of EV's driving by they are cheaper to make, but we still need a proposal written. In addition, there is a plan to EV's to allow bus lanes. The above developments are striking. Earlier, the government decided in the context of cuts to subsidies to "environmentally friendly" cars back to screws.

The sale of EVS is in Denmark, not exactly like clockwork. In the first half of this year, there were 524 electric cars sold. Although that is significantly more than the 146 units in the same period in 2017, the EV sales in Denmark considerably behind that of countries such as the Netherlands (9.501 in the first half of this year), France, Germany and Sweden*.
