"Debater: When will my neighbors in the rural areas start to be able to choose an electric car on the used market."
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"the DEBATE. If we want to ask if the transport sector should we focus on new sales rather than the fuel."
"I am a person with a foot in each camp when it blows up to Bensinskatteuppror 2.0. On the one hand, a stockholm based internet businesses and devote my time to think about – and write about – how technological development and artificial intelligence on society. I believe that climate change should be an overarching priority and thus suffers from both flygskam and proteinskiftesångest. To top it all I drive the Tesla."
"You see, many markers that are as a red line for the participants in the uprising. I seem to fit better into the Bensinskatteupproret 3.0, an even newer facebook group with the opposite objection against the price of petrol: it should be higher."
"But I also stand with one foot in the other camp. Since five years I live most of my time in a small community by the name of Prospect exactly where the Mälardalen released in Bergslagen. Here is the 1 may is synonymous with Motordagen and my friends are totally dependent on their cars. Since I moved here is I it with."
"That electric car users in this environment do you get dispel many myths. No, the scope is no problem, not even in the winter. No, we do not need to buy the Polish kolel on all drive an electric car. No, the minerals to the battery should not be dug up by children in the Congo. But the minerals are a by-product in the copper mines that we all acted in decades, so don't throw stone in glass houses."
"My neighbours and people in all other Fellingsbro in Sweden, however, has no option to link their fists in their pockets when they are standing at the pump. Most of the members of the Bensinskatteupproret 2.0 do not have the opportunity to buy a new car and the used market is elbilsutbudet non-existent. The few that become available to be exported to Norway because the Norwegian subsidies (zero vat) allows you to get paid more there."
"Now we are on to something. Cars have an average life of 17 years and approximately 20,000 miles. Despite increased fuel prices, most cars that roll about so many miles before they are scrapped. If the policy instrument we choose to screw up is the tax on the fuel, ends up the bill to the large proportion of low-income people in rural areas who still do not have any ability to change their behavior."
"It is, therefore, the urgent measure should be to ensure that the stop selling new cars with an internal combustion engine. 95% of cars sold still have an internal combustion engine that will burn oil in 17 years. And unlike litrarna in the pump in Kettering, bought new cars, preferably of the well-off who would be able to choose differently."
"Look, we re in Norway, the share of electricity of new car sales are already up over 40%. Sweden is indeed third in the world, but we are far behind with a share of around 5 per cent."
"How can it be? Well, Norway has a strong CO2-charges at the time of purchase and has, scrapped the vat on electric cars. It is in the same spirit as our own bonusu002Fmalus, but it has been in place for a longer time, is more ambitious and targeting on the price tag at the time of purchase."
"In Sweden costs a new Volvo V60 (diesel) approximately 320 000 sek and a Tesla Model 3 (electricity) of around 480 000 sek (after miljöbonus). In Norway, the corresponding rate of approximately 480 000 Norwegian kroner for a Volvo, and 377 000 for Tesla."
"Obviously it works, and the fees make a difference to be paid in the Norway of the high-income earners who have the privilege to afford a new car and thus can change their behavior."
"to bring down emissions, we must stop selling new cars with an internal combustion engine. About three years after we accomplished it, will my neighbors in the rural areas start to be able to choose an electric car on the used market. And who knows? Maybe they change the facebook group from Bensinskatteupproret 2.0 to 3.0."
