The stimulus package introduced a €2 billion programme for investments into new technologies by car manufacturers, including direct investment in the industry as well as doubling the environmental bonus in the purchase of a electric car. The government also states another €2.5 billion for expanding EV charging infrastructure and supporting research in electric mobility and clean batteries.
Next to the investment on e-cars and their infrastructure, the government proposes supporting the local public transport by investing in the DB company to modernise and electrify the rail network.
The car tax will be more directed to CO2 emissions and tax exemptions for e-cars as well as investments in more efficient planes regarding fuel consumption.
Considering the other sectors, the law outlines protection of forests and the increase of the investment in the building renovation programme to reduce the energy used for heating.
