According to EU rules, car prices can be obtained by integrating the amount of sales of electric vehicles to offset the pollution is more serious vehicle emissions. Car prices buy credits to achieve the 2020 deadline for the end of the present emission targets, prompting launched a battle between those points car prices may not reach the goal.
Summary: car prices to buy points, bring leeway to car prices to some extent, but also prompted some may not achieve the goal of integrating the battle between car prices.
