Head of Volkswagen promotes Blue Badge

The head of the car company has changed course. He is now in favour of a blue badge and the gradual phasing out of diesel subsidies as France started is this year. On his opinion, these subsidies could be better used to finance research into alternative propulsion technologies, for example. These measures would also boost sales figures for car manufacturers in the long term. The liberal party FDP strongly criticises this position because consumers would have to pay for the mistakes of the car industry.
