Anger in the auto industry over Guy Parmelin’s plans

Is the Federal Council sabotaging e-car sales?

The emergency plan announced by the Federal Council this week in the event of a power shortage is driving car importers crazy. They are particularly bothered by the fact that e-car owners should be restricted.

Andreas Burgener (63) was very annoyed when he found out about the Federal Council’s emergency plan in the event of a possible power shortage. The director of the Auto Schweiz importers’ association felt fooled: According to the Federal Council, at escalation level 3, owners of electric cars should only be allowed to use their e-mobiles for absolutely necessary journeys such as commuting to work, shopping or going to the doctor and church services.

“This announcement is in complete contrast to previous statements by the Federal Council, according to which the principles of proportionality should apply to necessary austerity measures.” Burgener gets excited: “It can’t be the case that the saunas and whirlpools in wellness hotels are still running seven hours a day while guests are no longer allowed to travel with their electric cars. That’s absurd!”
