According to Spiegel and FAZ, this involves “comprehensive tax breaks for vehicles that run on climate-friendly synthetic fuels, so-called e-fuels.”
The reason for this was the FDP’s general skepticism about the electric car and the justified opinion that “the race for the car drive of the future (…) is completely open” (Federal Minister of Transport Wissing).
Planning for equal tax treatment of eFuels and eAuto is therefore long overdue. This is what Spiegel says about it:
“All climate-neutral forms of propulsion should be treated equally and e-fuels vehicles should enjoy the same tax benefits as electromobility. This will promote the market ramp-up of climate-neutral mobility, he said.”
