Mercedes Sets Emission Targets


Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche said industry representatives again told Chancellor Merkel that European Union demands to cut average vehicle fleet emissions to 95 grams per km by 2021 cannot be met without a “considerable” share of EVs in overall auto sales.

The government should consider temporary start-up funding of EV sales to help get demand off the ground, Zetsche said. An industry official also called for special write-downs on electric company cars. “We need some of the tools as accompanying measures by the government if we want to have a chance to achieve the 1 million (sales) goal,” Zetsche said.
