What motivates Switzerland to outlaw electric vehicles
According to reports, Switzerland intends to outlaw electric vehicles there.
Officials in the nation have devised a proposal that would limit power usage in order to minimise blackouts and power outages, according to a report in The Telegraph.
Switzerland would be the first nation to do so if it takes place.
About 60% of Switzerland's power comes from hydropower, making hydropower the primary source of the country's energy needs.
However, throughout the winter, productivity decreases.
Additionally, the nation imports electricity from its neighbours Germany and France.
Switzerland wants to restrict the use of electric vehicles to only the most necessary trips if the situation gets worse.
Aside from that, the Swiss power plan also includes restrictions on cryptocurrency mining and the turning off of escalators.
