Germany giving up on diesel?
Is Germany finally ready to kick its diesel addiction? We ask, because the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure has just unveiled subsidies for green trucks.
Operators of both battery and fuel cell EVs of at least 7.5t are eligible if the vehicles are in the business of transporting goods. Trucks up to 12t can get funds rising to €12,000 while as much as €40,000 is in the kitty for larger vehicles.
The grants run to €500,000 per company, with a total of €10m available for disbursement this year.
