Comment on the combustion engine off: I’m not angry, just disappointed!

So now it’s out, the date for the end of combustion engines. New cars may still be registered in the EU from 2035, but only if nothing comes of it at the end of zero point zero. That’s good, finally planning security, say the Greens! It’s not possible, 13 years too late, environmental aid is complaining! Decision against the citizens, the association of the automotive industry rages!

Are they all right?

25 percent of the CO2-Emissions in the EU are caused by transport. And 100 percent reduction is now carried by traffic. That’s how I see it. And why is that? Because you can do it with us. The driver is actually always the fool.

▶ He pays more euros for his car because it has to meet all crash test requirements and environmental regulations. ▶ He pays more for the fuel because there are so many crises and others make money from it. ▶ He lets himself be made into a commuter because he hasn’t been able to pay for the home where he works for a long time. ▶ He lets the environmental aid (you know, Mr. Resch) talk his diesel to pieces with complaints about a driving ban, which did the environment a disservice: Because the CO2-Numbers rose again because petrol engines now have more CO2 emit as diesel. ▶ He wants to switch to electric cars, but can’t because it’s too expensive and he can’t charge at home or at work.

So now soon nothing at all – what’s next?

Do not get me wrong. CO2 is a greenhouse gas, we have to get away from it. And I like electric cars. But “planning security 2035” doesn’t mean anything. Because now the EU Council and the federal states have to negotiate. Then many MEPs who just voted for zero emissions will realize that there is no e-infrastructure in your home. Hildegard Müller, the VDA President, is correct.

The car manufacturers have long since lost confidence in politics, after many car summits that didn’t bring anything (when was the last one?). The coalition doesn’t even know how the e-funding will continue in 2023.
Well, Mercedes, Audi, VW, Opel & Co have decided on their own exit scenarios. Because the CO2-Reductions are a phased plan and have been forcing action for a long time. And then, in a few months, Euro 7 will follow, the most stringent emissions standard of all time. It will make many internal combustion engines unprofitable (because they are too expensive).
2026 last combustion engine at Audi, 2028 Opel completely electric, by 2030 also Mercedes, Porsche of course too (all manufacturer plans for combustion engines). VW turns up the electric power like no other company – and invests billions in countries that cannot do it alone (Spain, Greece). We build electric motors here, batteries too, the motor patents are held and then built and sold elsewhere.
Not everyone remains open to technology like BMW, for example. But CEO Oliver Zipse says we can’t produce as much renewable energy as we need. At least not in Europe. He’s right. To have a say, the parliamentary vote also means that an e-car can run on dirty electricity from coal, nothing comes out of the car. A combustion engine with eFuels, the synthetic gasoline made from wind and sun, is not allowed.
Topic eFUELS

eFuels were rejected by the EU Parliament as an alternative to electric drives.

Because exactly the CO2 that was extracted to create the atmosphere comes out at the back. But not everyone in the EU is interested in that. It’s probably too complicated. how did i say I’m not angry, just disappointed!
