Promotion-loophole at the electric car: taxpayers’ association demands stopping the purchase bonuses

Electrical funding uses particularly wealthy and must be generated by normal and low earners, shows a German bank study. With a trick, Stromer is also sold abroad with a profit. The taxpayers’ association calls for consequences.
Price shock of the choice: The gasoline price could increase by up to 70 cents in the future, because otherwise Germany will probably not reach the self-inserted climate goals in the traffic sector. In addition to the price explosion that had been carried out since January, another 40 cents per liter would be added. The CO2 tax is responsible for renovating the state budget and should cross the electromobility. Officially, the third CO2-based tax "CO2 price".
Petrol price shock to finance expensive electric cars
Because e-mobility is the prestige project of the EU and the German government. On 2.August almost hit each other on the shoulders of almost half the federal cabinet: for the first time, a million electric cars should roll on German roads. But despite high subsidies, only more than 50 percent of these cars were purely battery operations.
In other words: Although the state subsidizes every factory-new electric car with up to 6000 euros and de facto is not due for the buyer, the battery cars only reach a market share of less than 15 percent in the new registrations. The largest number of new car buyers are still deciding against an electric car despite the state filling horn.
To change this, the gasoline price whip is apparently. A study by Deutsche Bank has just shown that emobility in Germany is almost a redistribution from arm to green: "In general, people with a higher income currently take advantage of state funding measures than people with a lower income. Often electric cars are in a household and/or they are used as a company car. In contrast, all taxpayers finance the funding measures and the expansion of the charging infrastructure in accordance with their respective performance. These costs are likely to have low earners with their own car – measured by their incomes – disproportionately, because they generally have the proportion of fuel costs in the total available income than in the case of households with a high income. Mostly there is no way for low earners to use a company car", So the conclusion of the study.
Deutsche Bank Research There are more and more electric cars in Germany – the subsidy policy of the federal government is increasing its share in the new registrations
Auto industry as "Part of the transformation"
Electrical buyers, on the other hand, are still generously alimented. “Our traffic is irreversibly switched to renewable energies. We want to use this momentum and will therefore extend the innovation bonus for the purchase of an electric car by the end of 2025. The goal is that e-mobility makes a decisive contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and our auto industry and its employees successfully master the transformation. This already creates new added value and employment, for example in the area of battery supplement", still says Minister of Economics Peter Altmaier. That the “national platform future of mobility” but also with the loss of 400.000 jobs, Altmaier does not speak of that.

The press department of Federal Environment Minister Svenja Schulze offers comparable wishes: “A million electric cars are in traffic for millions of times fewer CO2 emissions. Because sixty percent of the greenhouse gas emissions of traffic in Germany are eliminated alone on cars. Now we have to start again in order to fully exploit the potential of electromobility and really reach the climate goals by 2030.""

From the Federal Ministry of Transport, it is said by still Minister Andreas Scheuer: “According to experts, 14 million e-vehicles must be the new goal by 2030. We can only do that if the general conditions are right. That is why we mainly support the expansion of the charging infrastructure – in public and private areas – but also modes of transport with so far low market penetration, such as commercial vehicles and buses."

Small shrinkage of the electric car
But apparently the setting becomes increasingly ambitious goals at some point to its limits. Even if you generously add the largely fossil-driven plug-in hybrid vehicles, Do not roll a million electrified cars across the German roads, but just 865.142 (426.192 of them plug-in hybrid). Overall, this is 14 percent less than claimed.

In the hybrid vehicles, nobody knows how often they are electrically and how often fossil is on the move. In this case, the consumption is usually higher than the conventional drive, because the heavy batteries and the electric motors also have to be dragged along.

Where are 37.000 Stromer remained?
The Federal Association of Verrbrnung engine E.V has now compared the reported registration numbers with the inventory. The old motto “a little shrinkage is always” would be considered a bit exaggerated. At the association, on the basis of the registration data published by the Motor Transport Association, it was found that between 01. January 2020 to 01.07.2021 340.000 new purely electrically operated cars have been approved. 136.000 were registered in Flensburg in previous years. Together 476.000 vehicles. However, only 438 can be found in the admission statistics of the Flensburg Motor Transport Federal Office.950 electric cars. At least that’s 37.050 less. And for them, 222.3 million euros are subsidized with an environmental bonus of 6000 euros per vehicle. If you include the disappeared hybrids, you can almost talk about a doubling.But where are the cars there? A couple may have been injured, burned down in technical defects or otherwise destroyed – but that should only be a few. For a "natural" Scratulatory due to their age, the cars are much too young in turn.the "Car picture" reports that some car dealers take advantage of a gap in legislation. Despite the immense funding, electric car owners only have to keep the brand new car for half a year if they do not want to risk repayment of the premium.
Lucrative funding trick
A six month old Tesla Model 3 finds in Denmark for the equivalent of 57.750 euros a new buyer. Minus the 6000 funding and the 3000 discount by the manufacturer, the car costs 54 in Germany with 54.650 euros a whopping 3080 euros less. This means: Drive Tesla for 6 months and also collect in the end. How to do this is published in various Internet forums. Even a VW e-up driver claims to have made a Reibach of 3000 euros.
Auto Motor & Sport As "clean" Are e-cars? That depends on the electricity
A dedicated climate protection officer will of course determine – not entirely wrong -: the car is also good for the climate in Denmark or Scandinavia because it saves emissions. Whether an electric car is to be operated low in emission depends on the electricity mix in the respective country.
Scandinavian electricity mix "clean" than the German
Using the example of the 1. August 2021 was shown on the basis of the real-time power data: While almost 400 g of specific emissions in Germany were caused by CO2 equivalent per kilowatt hour, it is only over 100 in West Denmark 314 in East Denmark. In Norway, the value fluctuates around 30. What appears in fact as a subsidy fraud makes sense when looking at the global view: Electric cars cause significantly fewer emissions in Scandinavia than in this country. So it would be better to promote the sale of electric cars in Scandinavia from German tax funds, even if the German tax citizen would be amazed.

In other words, the German electro-car promotion is for so long alibi-controlled symbol policy as not sufficient electricity from renewable energies is produced in Germany. The journal "Auto Motor & Sport" has compared this based on the power consumption of the VW ID3. Thanks to the high proportion of nuclear power, the only 11.5 g/km in France emits, 91.2 g/km in Germany and 167.7 in Poln, where the coal current content is particularly high.
Tax payer association: Reform in funding premium – or abolish
The “Environmental Bonus” for e-cars is also a thorn in the side of the taxpayers’ federal government. President Reiner Holznagel says: “The increasing number of electric cars on our streets is expensive bought. The BUND has been paying billion dollar subsidies for years. The federal government even violates its own subsidy policy guidelines. So the purchase bonus was extended and increased, instead of being temporary and degressive. But that’s not all: The state purchase bonus doubled since summer 2020 has been fizzled out in parts without an incentive or incident – because around 120 million euros were awarded for cars that were bought before the increased premium. The purchase bonus must expire! Otherwise it must be designed in such a way that the waste of tax money is avoided."
