The level of ambition of German climate policy is increasing significantly, and with it demands on individual economic sectors is rising. Accelerating the electric vehicle transition will be key to meeting the new 2030 climate target for transport and achieving climate neutrality by 2045. Setting concrete targets that can be followed by all stakeholders and establishing framework conditions that support the roll-out of electric vehicles (EVs) and the expansion of public and private charging infrastructure in Germany will be essential.

We call on Germany's political parties and leaders to use the next legislative term to adopt the following goals and actions required if businesses are to play a role in the transition to a zero emission transport system that is already underway:

  • Implement ambitious ICE phase out by 2032 at the latest
  • Maintain purchase incentives
  • Support ambitious CO2 emissions standards
  • Reduce electricity cost
  • Expand and strengthen charging infrastructure
  • Ensure funding for a seamless roll out to reach the 2030 infrastructure targets
  • Restructure company car tax
  • Re-tool and re-train
