Germany's Social Democrats call for moves to boost electric cars

Berlin (dpa) - Germany‘s centre-left Social Democrats (SPD) have mapped out a new plan for addressing the nation‘s diesel car crisis as concerns about the often close links between the carmakers and political leaders emerge an issue in next month‘s national election.

"The introduction of an [electric vehicle] quota in the European Union would be a good thing and will finally place us on a future course," the Minister for Environment Barbara Hendricks told dpa on Friday after SPD leader Martin Schulz outlined a five-point plan for the car sector.

"I‘m sure that the European Commission will present a proposal for the future CO2 limits, which will include an e-quota," said Hendricks, referring measures to boost the number of electric cars registered as a proportion of total new cars on Europe‘s roads.

Hendricks is also a member of the SPD, which is the junior member of Angela Merkel‘s conservative-led coalition, but the chancellor‘s main rivals in the September 24 election.

Moves by several German cities to consider bans on diesel vehicles to tackle urban pollution problems has once again brought to a head the diesel crisis that first emerged two years ago when Volkswagen admitted to cheating on pollution tests on more than 11 million diesel cars around the world.
