STUTTGART (dpa-AFX) – The Glasgow commitment of global players for an end date for the internal combustion engine applies at Daimler (Daimler share)
The declaration of the World Climate Conference stipulates that the sale of combustion cars in leading markets should end by 2035 at the latest, and that this should happen worldwide by 2040. This is what the undersigned governments should “work towards”.
According to a document from the British government, eleven automobile manufacturers are taking part in the initiative, including Mercedes-Benz as the only German manufacturer. Daimler sells both cars and trucks under the brand with the star. Big German players like VW
Daimler CEO Ola Källenius had made it clear on Wednesday at a “Handelsblatt” industry conference that the commitment of the Stuttgart company matched the previous company announcements. As early as July, the manufacturer signaled more ambition for the breakthrough of its own e-fleet: The Mercedes-Benz business is to be geared towards electric driving. In 2025, the Swabians want to achieve 50 percent of their new sales with fully electric or plug-in cars. The aim is to become fully electric by the end of the decade – wherever “market conditions allow”.
According to earlier information, Germany refuses to cooperate with the Glasgow Declaration. 31 other countries, including India and Turkey, are pulling along. According to the Federal Environment Ministry, the reason for the Berlin rejection is that the declaration makes the use of synthetic fuels in internal combustion engines impossible ./cb/DP/men
