Auto Macht Deutschland – Die Autoindustrie und ihre Politik
The German automotive industry is the bearer of our prosperity and employer for millions of people. Also thanks to its good relations in politics. It has an influence on laws and thus determines important areas of our lives. But sacrifices must be made for the interests of the industry. Especially ecological ones.
The mood in society seems to be tilting, industry is in deep crisis. The race for new drive technologies has long since begun without Germany. Is the German government's industrial policy to blame for this? In times of crisis, the industry repeatedly turns to German decision-makers in search of help. Hard hit by the Covid 19 pandemic, the automotive industry is demanding the postponement of stricter CO2 limits and a purchase premium for new vehicles. The argument: No less than the prosperity of our country is at stake. But is Germany's successful model really dependent on the car industry? How far does politics go to push through the interests of German car companies?
