There aren't many electric automobiles in Israel, however, it seems it that will change in the following 10 years. A report from Reuters says the nation is wanting to ban new gas and diesel vehicle starting in 2030, requiring every new vehicle to be either completely electric or fueled by petroleum gas.
At this stage it's only a proposition, however, Israel's Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz anticipates that the administration will endorse the proposal before the year ends. It's just a part of the bigger plan from the Energy Ministry intended to guide the nation far from petroleum totally. That is, aside from natural gas which exists in vast amounts on Israel's outskirts. And still, at the end of the day, petroleum gas is by and large a cleaner-consuming fuel.
With respect to vehicles, the strategy will clearly lean intensely on electric power. To help it, the government has to cut taxes on electric vehicles so they will be less expensive. With respect to the framework to help such a change, Steinitz discloses to Reuters that changes are in progress.
"We are as of now reassuring by financing charging stations, in excess of 2,000 new charging stations around the nation," he said to Reuters.
The proposal suggests every single new car sold in the nation to be electric, with trucks and bigger business vehicles ready to run either on power or petroleum gas.
