Priority question for written answer  P-000403/2022
to the Commission
Rule 138
Peter Lundgren (ECR)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Irresponsible experiment ‘Fit For 55’ for the transport sector

The following questions are in response to the presence of Vice-President of the Commission, Frans Timmermans, at a meeting of the Committee on Transport and Tourism.

The so-called ‘Fit for 55’ is a very irresponsible experiment for our economy, in which ordinary people can simply not participate in a realistic way without having difficulties every month!

1. Mr Timmermans has stated that it will be affordable for everyone to drive an electric car in the next five to six years. If that is the case, what is the Commission’s solution for families for the next five to six years, since, due to the enormous tax burden, diesel cars are no longer affordable to drive?

2. The battery of an electric car is not really recyclable (yet). What is the Commission’s solution for the degradability of batteries?

3. There are already major problems with electricity grid failure due to excessive load. Is the Commission aware of that? What is its solution for this grid failure?
