Germany to Cut Transport Emissions as It Pushes Electric Cars

German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government expects to cut greenhouse-gas emissions from transportation by a quarter by 2030 as it boosts the number of electric cars on the road.

The administration expects emissions to drop 26 percent by 2030 from 1990 levels, it said in a reply to questions from the opposition Green Party. Germany has set a goal of having 1 million electric vehicles by 2020, from about 21,324 at the start of this year, it said.
