I didn't know the Germans' invented a functional crystal ball.
Legislation like this is written by people who honestly have no understanding of technological development.
Electric cars are the future, that's without any doubt. They will be standard eventually.
But, there are technological hurdles to still overcome through research and development. Mostly in battery density. If the technology hits a wall (which it kind of has at the moment) what are people suppose to do if 2030 rolls around and the ICE is still the most practical and economical way of doing things? Just go broke on inferior, but more expensive technology?
Preemptive inevitable Tesla fanboy post: No. Tesla has not revolutionized battery technology by merely adding more Panasonic 18650 li-ions to it's battery packs.
Preemptive Lithium-Air post: "The allure of an ultra-high –energy density battery has prompted substantial research into the Li-O2 electrochemical couple as a possible battery chemistry and a significant progress has been made over the past decade … However, expectations for a practical Li-air battery should be kept modest given the severity of the challenges facing the battery chemistry.”
