The tank discount ends today, and purely arithmetically, the prices should rise by 17 cents for diesel and 35 cents for super – the energy tax now applies in full again. Probably fast. And when the energy bills start rolling in for me and all of you, everything you might think you saved will be forgotten. I think those who could drive less did it, millions of others paid (my record: 2.25 euros/l diesel) and are now grudgingly paying more. Perhaps also a reason why more and more Germans are interested in alternative drives. With this you are currently – purchase price aside – cheaper on the road.
My brother-in-law (75), who has been a Skoda driver for 20 years, bought an Enyaq. Convinced on the test drive, which was its e-first. Many are like him. We just have to be careful not to condemn either one or the other. The cleanest combustion engines that have ever existed are yet to come. We will test them. And accompany the change.
Best of all: we are already fit for the future – starting today, AUTO BILD will be printed climate-neutrally with TÜV certification.
