Germany wants to put 2 billion euros into encouraging electric cars

Jan 13 German Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel wants to commit two billion euros ($2.17 billion) to encourage more people to buy electric cars, the newspaper Die Zeit reported on Wednesday. Buyers of electric cars would receive a subsidy from the government, the newspaper said, giving no further details. Gabriel also wants to expand charging stations and encourage federal offices to use electric cars – an initiative that will be funded under the current German budget without tax increases, he said.
