Climate plan of the VW boss
VW cheated on millions of diesel drivers – and now calls for them massive fuel price increase
Site / Diethelm 20 cents more for diesel: This car boss quickly wants higher fuel prices
VW CEO Herbert Diess presents a 10-point plan for so-called climate neutrality. One proposal is directed against millions of own customers: they should finance emobility with maximum prices for diesel and petrol for diesel and petrol.
A few hours after the Bundestag election, it is still completely unclear what composition the future government coalition will have. In this vacuum, Volkswagen Group boss Herbert Diess has spoken out on Twitter with a ten-point plan for the next government. He calls for a clear course from fossil energy supply and to electromobility.His ten points are:
- Faster raising the CO2 tax (officially called CO2 price) to 65 euros per ton in 2024.
- End of subsidies for fossil fuels, faster coal phase -out.
- Faster expansion of renewable energies to at least 255 gigawatts in 2030, plus faster expansion of the networks, for continuous care.
- Limit company car subsidy on cars with electrical drive.
- Remove the purchase bonus for electric cars by 2025.
- Remove the charging infrastructure massively and specify mandatory goals for quick charging. Goal: Load should become as simple and natural as refueling.
- Produce green hydrogen and use steel and cement production as well as in the chemical industry- but not for mobility.
- Promote mobility alternatives for cities: bicycles, e-bikes, electric car sharing. In particular, the ride pooling should get a high priority.
- Data protection: Vehicle security should be guaranteed as well as fair and secure access to collected vehicle data.
- Slearing 5G for autonomous driving.
More than expected: After the Bundestag election, the gasoline price increases to unexpected heights

Line with Volkswagen strategy
The general direction of Diess’ demands is not surprising: the Volkswagen Group relies on a complete electrification strategy that even includes the truck brands Man and Scania. Only for the niche does the commercial vehicle division work to be worked on hydrogen drives.However, the required CO2 tax in particular is remarkable, since it goes beyond the 16 cents per liter in the summer from a proposal of the Greens: 65 euros CO2 tax in Diesel over 17 cents, with a raised VAT staircase, the end customer price smooth 20 cents compared to 2020. Particularly piquant: VW triggered the exhaust gas scandal and cheated millions of its customers worldwide with manipulated diesel cars. Exactly these customers who have recently bought VW vehicles should now pay massively higher fuel prices according to the wish of the VW group manager.
Company car privilege for electric car drivers
What funding this means at point 2 remains open. The classic tank card, which company car drivers can use for private use, can also be strictly considered. On the other hand, the emobility is currently being promoted with tax privileges – which, according to a study by Deutsche Bank, leads to considerable tax losses for the state .This underlines with its demands on how serious the VW group is with the electrical strategy. At the same time, implementation would also be reinsurance for the success of this strategy. It remains to be hoped that the proposals can be discussed factually after the end of the election campaign.

Do not buy a VW – is also not a solution
Who do you punish if you don’t buy a VW anymore? The victims are the ones in the … Who do you punish if you don’t buy a VW anymore? The victims are the workers on the lower floors, where it is first dismantled. On the upper floors everyone have their sheep in the dry. Most suffer, the workers in the suppliers are not only under Lower Saxony, but a huge region and with it a lot of people who do nothing, really nothing, but can do nothing for that. Well, then in Hartz IV, only who then worked out the money for it????
….How congruent VW marches with the government ! VW also needs customers for their products. However, my feeling is because more and more of this "company" avert. I’m curious to see how long it can/may pull through this ? And: just google what they have in the program for North America/Canada. Z. BSP giant SUV atlas with V6 petrol engine ! This is how lying this company or its guide is…….. I hope that this post is not censored, corresponds to the truth !
To blame who such bowls
from VW buys. Diess is granted with millions a year..TTET, but demands from politics to increase the fuel price, what is going on in the hope of being able to sell his e-scrap expensive.
Dear Lord of Diess
How can you deal with customers so arrogant, my next car will definitely be none of the VW group anymore.
You shouldn’t buy a combustion engine from the group, so you can no longer finance the BEV. Because with the combustioners, the group earns its money. Without that, VW would quickly be insolvent.
Because of this
I turned my back on the group and went back to the car with a star, the Lord should have his plan …. Rinse down, I also do not understand why nobody forbids his mouth when the group is on the abyss. A foreign car, somewhere I will find a manufacturer who can think but think it doesn’t come so far, BMW has recently proven to be reasonable.
For nothing in the world
I buy a VW. This criminal shop will not see a cent by me. However, the massive influence of the auto lobby on our politicians is beautiful again. What exactly do they have to report? VW can be replaced. Is not at the door Tesla? But neither VW nor otherwise a car manufacturer has to determine which something is developing properly. If a new method for the production of green hydrogen is found tomorrow, this priority has priority over the arrogant claims of a overpaid representative of a criminal organization. First pays the cheated consumers.
We have Mr. Diess and his lobbyists too
owe the impossible high car bonus, which, according to a study, costs 20,000 euros of every taxpayer.The car companies earn stupid and stupid at the moment, since the premium ends up one to one with them. Why does an e car do not pay a car tax, they do not use the street. Everything is being bordered on petrol and diesel, and that is unfair
drove a Skoda Octavia. When he had to go to the workshop all over the tour, the software update was simply carried out without asking. After that I had really problems with the cart until it ran normally again. Okay, the costs then covered 95% VW. When I bought a new BMW, my VW dealer was very surprised why I didn’t get any offer with him. And what am I glad that this imagined manager (this) is now at VW and no longer at BMW.
I am VW for his fraud
To punish massively and what is presented here as a climate plan is nothing more than to force VW customers to buy e-carts. Hears to buy VW, because firstly, the cars have long been no longer better than other brands, overpriced and a management like VW, which wants to punish one’s own customers again after fraud, can be killed very easily. In any case, I don’t buy a VW anymore.
