All of Germany's new cars could be emissions free by 2030, report says
German Deputy Economy Minister Rainer Baake said that the country's entire new-car fleet will need to be zero emissions by 2030, in order to meet its own goals of cutting carbon dioxide output by 80 to 95% by 2050, Bloomberg reports. He suggested a 2030 goal, rather than 2050, because new cars in Germany are kept in service for 20 years on average. Looking forward, if the country wants every single car to be emissions free by the 2050 date, it'll have to start two decades ahead of time, in order to hedge its bet.
