Scheuer's proposal on diesel

After the meeting with the automotive industry, the Minister of Transport presented his proposal. Commuters in the 65 cities where nitrogen oxide limits are exceeded should receive a premium to upgrade their vehicles, 80% of which is financed by car manufacturers. The total number of vehicles involved is between 1.1 and 1.2 million. However, it would take 18 months for this "conversion package" to enter into force.
