  • Germany aims to have at least 15 million electric cars on the roads by 2030 in its shift towards climate neutrality, up from a previous goal of 14 million.
  • Neither the SPD nor the FDP was behind such a ban.
  • On charging infrastructure, the lack of which is regarded as one of the main obstacles to wider uptake of electric vehicles, the coalition would maintain Germany’s current goal of 1 million charging spots by 2030 – up from around 49,000 available today.
