According to the program, the purchase premium borne by the federal government and by the manufacturers should be extended from 2021 for electric, hybrid and hydrogen / fuel cell powered passenger cars and increased to less than 40,000 euros for cars. The company car scheme for the use of a battery electric vehicle or a plug-in hybrid is therefore extended until 2030. The company car tax will also be reduced for pure electric vehicles up to a price of 40,000 euros from 0.5 to 0.25 percent.

Climate package not yet decided

In addition, the government wants to further expand the publicly accessible charging infrastructure, so that a total of one million charging points will be available in Germany by 2030. Therefore, the federal government promotes the construction of public shop pillars with appropriate programs by 2025, it says in the Climate Change Program (PDF).

Unlike originally planned, the climate package was not even decided by the Cabinet on Wednesday. According to media reports, the CSU demanded a lengthy examination because the individual ministries had delivered the final details of the planned measures only on the night of Wednesday. The entire package has a size of 200 pages, reported the Süddeutsche Zeitung,
