The German Ministry of Transport believes that carbon-neutral fuel will save cars with internal combustion engines. This will allow manufacturers to save on the production of new models.
Germany has asked the European Union for an exemption from a total ban on ICE vehicles from 2035. This was reported on the website The Drive.
Germany says CO2-neutral fuels can help solve environmental problems. This will help keep ICE vehicles on the European market, as well as reduce harmful emissions.
Recall that the European Parliament decided to ban the sale of cars with internal combustion engines from 2035. Because of this, many manufacturers will have to completely switch to the production of hydrogen or electric cars.
Only small manufacturers will be exempted from a complete ban on the production of ICE vehicles. Nevertheless, they need to produce at least 50% of cars on electric or hydrogen.
German Transport Minister Michael Theurer noted that climate-neutral fuel will allow concerns to reduce the cost of creating new cars, which will positively affect their value for buyers.

Climate-neutral fuel is currently being produced by only a few companies. Among them is Porsche, which has set up production in Chile.
Previously, Focus wrote that Skoda may stop producing three of its popular car models.
