Five proposals for the future

More and more scientists are calling to realistically assess the climate balance of electric cars. In fact, there are several attempts to deceive. Nevertheless, they will probably play the main role in the future. What should I do? Five suggestions.
There is a often hard -working comparison in the auto industry: the electric car behave as a petrol engine like the iPhone to Nokia. That means: The combustion industry is consecrated to the downfall, the electric car can do everything better and inevitably becomes a disruptive process for the dominant species on our streets.The smartphone example sounds impressive, but the comparison begins to lag a lot when you transfer it to e-mobility. Because then the whole thing should have run as follows:
- The iPhone would be with one for years "Innovation bonus" have been promoted.
- In return, telephone bans would have been issued for Nokia owners in the city center.
- Special legislation would have caused only the power supply of a smartphone to be defined as fundamentally environmentally friendly.
The electric car – smartphone on the street?
As is known, none of this happened. The smartphone simply prevailed because it was in all areas (with a remarkable exception, namely the battery life) The better product was And at the same time the good old phone gave a number of completely new functions on the way.Is that also the case with the electric car? Clear answer: Currently not yet. The electric car has many advantages (great driving performance, local emission freedom, lower maintenance costs), but also many disadvantages (reach, price, load chaos)). The topic of shop in particular is still a sticking point for all long -distance trips. The electric car blogger Carmaniac in this remarkable video shows a frustrated and humorous view of it. This situation may improve in the future. However, it could also deteriorate, if the expansion of the charging stations does not last with the electric sales figures.

The climate trick of e-mobility
The appeal of international scientists recently ensured a true war of faith around the electric car to finally end a calculation trick when calculating CO2 emissions: the use of mean values in the CO2 balance of electricity Real accumulating. The scientists receive a lot of encouragement from other professors and energy experts, but also a lot of criticism. It ranged from a factual argument to personal attacks or pure false claims – such as that of the scientists had expected a share of 100% coal current to leave the electric car particularly bad.
You can find a level before the emission calculation dispute, that you can honestly only be called fraud in the sense of the electric car: In the EU’s fleet calculation, the CO2 emissions of each electricity are accepted with zero gram (the car would have to be connected directly to a CO2-neutral wind turbine even with strong wind, which has not yet been found to me). For the overall balance sheet, manufacturers can even have their battery vehicles credited several times. However, this is no better than the exhaust gas fraud at Volkswagen, in which diesel engines were defined as a law-compliant, even if they are only within very specific driving parameters "clean" was.It is therefore time to see two things:
- There is no reason for political preference for e-mobility, neither from climate protection nor other points of view.
- At the same time, almost all manufacturers (with some remarkable exceptions, such as Mazda or Toyota) rely solely on the battery car. So your share will grow strongly in any case.
And how does it go on? Five suggestions for dealing with e-mobility.
1. the "Zero CO2 lie" must stop
The emissions of all output types must be calculated neutrally and realistically, based on the actual sources of electricity generation and not based on contributions for regenerative energies that are only expected in the future. Here, of course, politics has put itself in one leg: Due to the ever faster tightening of the climate goals.
2. Electric car drivers must finally pay taxes
It cannot be concerned that the owners of a 70.Collecting two and a half tons of electric SUV not only funding, but also "black" Drive while owners of diesel and petrol cars with constantly increasing CO2 taxes have to pay the dentist to pay their Tesla. Because the Stromer use the streets and infrastructure as well as everyone else. Since taxation after emissions is difficult – it would vary daily updated – a taxation according to the vehicle weight in relation to the required traffic area is ideal. A 2.5-ton 4.5-meter SUV then pays more than a Tesla Model 3, an Opel Corsa-E or an electric smart "consume".

3. Charging column building on long-distance streets belongs in private hands
In Germany, a real murder of platforms, councils and interest groups has formed in recent years that should advance e-mobility. Little happened. However, since the range of electricity is now growing strongly, it is time to leave the whole thing to the mechanisms of the market economy. Because especially where there is a lot of money to get, the market always finds the better solution. Finally, for example, the connection between retail and charging options results in completely new business models. An important concrete step would be to cancel the quasi-monopoly of "Tank & rest" on the highways .

4. Promotion must be reduced sharply
China showed it: electrical funding is discontinued. The electric quotas to be fulfilled in return are not necessary in Germany, because the manufacturers have already carried out the swivel for e-mobility. What has to stop immediately is the promotion of plug-in hybrids, the real consumption of which is often so catastrophic in practice that every emission fraud of diesel cars, on the other hand, becomes a cavalier offense. There must be no cent tax money or discounts for such cars. Incidentally, this requirement also supports several environmental associations. If you are already promoting something publicly, then not an individual purchase, but a direct upgrading of the infrastructure. A wall box in the underground car park, possibly also a separate parking box for Stromer for fire protection reasons, is a permanent investment that not only benefits one person in apartment buildings, but also to all the tenants.
5. There must be existing protection for all combustion engines
Cities like Berlin want to completely ban gasoline cars in the city center in a few years. The consequence would then be that a vehicle bought a few years ago will be worthless for its owner overnight and that he has to buy an electric car. The auto industry may be happy about this; But every kindergarten child will see that it cannot be sustainable or help the environment to prohibit the use of a proven product before the end of its lifespan.

Site Climate frit should come: We will soon refuel all CO2-neutral?
It is quite conceivable that the majority of all new cars drive electrically before the 2030s. But for all already produced, approved and approved vehicles, there must be existing protection. If this protection is legally anchored, it would not be a problem, at some point really "the switch" To change and say: From this point on, we are now only allowing electric vehicles, but of course you can continue to drive your old cars as long as you want.My proposal for the minimum duration of the existing protection is 20 years from the date of the new registration ban (Based on the average lifespan of a car in Germany, which is 18 years until scrapping). It is easy for classic cars, because their number and annual mileage is so small that their emissions are completely insignificant for the overall fleet. If until then in the field of synthetic fuels, so much progress is made that also a combustion engine "Climatic" is on the move emission-neutral, in this case you could still keep this option open as an electric supplement.
