Switzerland to BAN Electric Vehicles Amid Energy Crisis

Switzerland is planning to ban the use of electric vehicles (EVs) this winter due to the ongoing energy crisis, according to reports.

Due to its dependence on imports, Swiss authorities are worried about a crippling energy crisis this winter. About 60% of Switzerland’s energy comes from hydroelectric power.

Thegatewaypundit.com reports: Another 30% is generated from nuclear power plants, which the government has already decided to phase out. Traditional fossil fuels and wind farms make up the remainder of Switzerland’s energy sources, according to Euro Weekly News.

Fox News reported:

It can be recalled that similar events happened in California, where residents were urged to avoid charging their electric vehicles during peak hours to avoid power outages.

“Californians are strongly urged to lower electricity use by setting thermostats to 78 or higher, health permitting, avoid using major appliances, and turning off all unnecessary lights,” officials announced. “Tomorrow’s Flex Alert is the fourth consecutive call for conservation, as much of the state remains gripped in an extensive heat wave.”

The announcement comes after days of passing a law banning new sales of gasoline-powered cars by 2035.
