- Lavemissionsbiler are vehicles that have significantly lower emissions than the existing conventional cars. It will say that the car is allowed to emit 50 grams of CO2 per kilometer.
Such is the definition of a 'green' car in the government's klimaudspil. But when it must be translated into practice, valuing the line at 50 grams of CO2 per kilometer is not so high anyway.
At the moment there is laid up for, that all the so-called pluginhybridbiler get benefits such as cheaper parking and the option to run in busbanen, regardless of whether they meet the definition or not.
It writes to the Engineer, who have enquired with the ministry of finance.
- the Government's climate - and luftudspil applies to all pluginhybridbiler and electric vehicles. There are differentiated not between pluginhybridbiler that emit above or below the threshold of 50 grams of CO2 per. kilometers, writes the ministry to the media.
the Term pluginhybrid covers the fact that the car is equipped with an electric motor and a battery, which complements the traditional internal combustion engine and must be recharged in the outlet.
however, There is a big difference in how much the electric motor is allowed to help, and it means, according to the Engineer that there is currently a part of cars, that technically is pluginhybrider, but still pollute over the limit.
the Majority of the pluginhybridbiler, which are sold in Denmark at the moment, is located according to the Engineer under the limit. But it does not change the fact that the lack of distinction is unfortunate, believe Mogens Fosgerau, professor in transport economics at the University of Copenhagen, denmark.
The cars, as it provides benefits to, you will get more of in one degree or another. If given the benefits to the pluginhybridbiler, which exceeds the limit for the lavemission, this will not be as targeted to klimaeffekten, he says to the media.
Also Klimarådet, which advises the government on climate change, demanding a concrete limit, as the cars must keep within.
Without a limit, it may become difficult for the government to achieve the comprehensive reduction of CO2 emissions, which, according to the government can give to stop all sales of traditional petrol and diesel cars by 2030.
- Up to 2050 can the conversion of the Danish passenger cars potentially have spared the atmosphere for up to 100 million. ton CO., seen in relation to today's level, predicts the government in the proposal.
At the Transport, Construction and ministry of housing expects, according to the Engineer, that will be taken on a possible boundary or other forms of distinction, when the concrete legislation needs to be designed.
