LMP Urges ‘Radical Measures’ to Promote Electric Cars
MTI-Hungary Today 2019.04.05.
The opposition LMP party has urged the government to take “radical measures” to promote electric car use in Hungary so that the country is not left out from the “global electric car revolution”.
Like in Norway and China, steps must be taken to ensure that only electric and hybrid cars run in Hungary after 2030, Gábor Vágó who heads the green party’s list for the European Parliament elections, told a press conference on Friday.
Air pollution shortens the life expectancy of newborn Hungarians by three years, he added.
The party proposes setting up an electric switchover fund and taxing drivers of cars that emit carbon-dioxide, he said. The fund would be used to change city public transport vehicles to electric and develop the national electric charging network, he added.
