The move could be a significant increase in electric vehicle demand, together with the wider stimulus plan to punish the taxes on the property, or the big polluting internal-combustion sports car, Sport utility vehicles, and a 6,000 euro grant to the cost of an electric vehicle
Germany’s announcement follows a French plan to boost electric-car sales, announced last week, the President of Macron.
“It is a very clear commitment to battery-powered vehicles, and represents electro-mobility as a technology of the future, energy storage specialist, The Mobility House, whose investors Daimler ag (DAIGn.DEand the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, said.
“Internationally, the Germany in the top group of the battery of the electric vehicle for this support.”
In the framework of the state stimulus, the 2.5 billion euros will be spent on a battery cell and a production and charging infrastructure, a field, where the oil majors, energy providers and automobile manufacturers, as well as ShellRDSa.L), Engie (ENGIE.PAand Rate (TSLA.Oh), vying for supremacy.

Electric vehicle performance, an increase of about 40% in the last ten years, thanks to improvements in battery-pack design and cell chemistry.
A similar improvement in fuel efficiency (gasoline-powered cars, led to a reduction in the number of the tank. According to the assistance Association ADAC, the number of tank points to 14,118 in the year 2020, of the 40,640 1965.
