The ADAC calls for more cheaper e-cars from German producers. It is "conspicuous that German manufacturers are eliminating many basic models with weak engines and little equipment from their range and instead relying on more expensive and better equipped variants," wrote ADAC Technology President Karsten Schulz in a guest article for "Welt am Sonntag". In addition, the search for a German small electric car is almost in vain. "The German car manufacturers have almost completely withdrawn from the segment and are currently leaving it to European and increasingly Chinese manufacturers."
Since at the same time politicians are questioning the subsidy premiums for electric cars, the switch to emission-free models is currently "rather more difficult than easier," Schulz continued. E-mobility must be "redeemable for all future motorists" and should not "become a privilege for a few".
