DGB for promoting car purchases, Greens and experts against it

The German Trade Union Confederation (DGB) insists that the car purchase be subsidized by the state. DGB board member Körzell said that a distribution would make sense if it applied to all types of cars, including low-emission combustion engines. Besides, consumption would have to be accelerated through a stimulus package.

The Greens co-spokesman Habeck warned of government subsidies for cars as unreasonable. Purchase premiums for gas guzzlers thwarted the climate targets. This is fueling the next major crisis, he hinted. Economic experts had previously spoken out against a premium for buying cars. This would send the wrong signals regarding climate policy and would not contribute to structural change, according to several professors.
