Eco-car Premium Cut Early as Too Popular
A premium introduced by the Swedish government to encourage people to buy environmentally friendly cars and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions is to be withdrawn sooner than expected.
The initiative has been so popular with drivers that the government say they simply cannot afford to keep the incentive going and now plan on ending it six months early in July next year.
The Moderates want too introduce tougher new rules on carbon dioxide emissions for new cars. They say the aim should be cars should use a maximum of half a litre of petrol every 8 kilometres by 2020.
