electric cars are on German roads are still a rarity – the car companies sell too little. The government wants to help the Whole since July, the E-car premium on top of the jumps. However, Daimler boss Zetsche is no Fan of the credit.
Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche sees the Federal government introduced a buyer’s premium for electric cars skeptical. “The success will come, if we can convince the customers with E-cars and fascinate,” said Zetsche, the “picture on Sunday”. Therefore, he was never a great supporter of the E-car premium.
A premium, it could never enforce an uneconomic technology. “Electric cars that inspire are not from today to tomorrow,” added the Daimler-chief. “Slowly we can achieve with battery-powered cars with similar ranges, such as with internal combustion engines.” Also, the cost went down.

Many commuters are not out of the range of the vehicles. “Right now in the Winter, if we have additional consumers such as the heating, the range is reduced even more.”
