Germany is one of the countries lately everybody talks about when they want to point out an example of what is good or well done. Electric cars are no exception. The government just announced several measures in order to incentive this climate-change friendly industry. Check this out.

The measures spoken by Angela Merkel’s (first female Chancellor of Germany) government include cash incentives to clients buying electric cars, charging infrastructure and investment in public transport.  

The country will spend 130 billion euros on this plan. Automakers like Volkswagen or BMW have already started the transitioning to fabricating electric cards that are affordable to the public and have a wide range of autonomy. 
Germany is known for having the largest (and best) car factories in the world with brands like Porsche, Volkswagen, BMW and Mercedes-Benz and wants to keep their leadership as the largest market for electric vehicles in Europe.

Charging stations will be available in every city


In conclusion:
If you are in Germany and want to buy an electric car, you will get a lot of discount. A lot. Specially for cars that are for "work use", that means, probably the latest electric Porsche Taycan will keep being really expensive. You will also get reduced tax and financing options.

Also, they just passed a new law that every gas station is required to have an electrical charging base installed, so that the queues for electric charging aren't long (what is currently happening with Tesla in California) and are available everywhere. Are you ready to change? Germany is!
