Germany's Merkel says subsidies for e-cars cannot go on forever

BERLIN, Sept 27 (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that subsidies for the purchase of electric vehicles had helped boost demand but that they could not go on forever.

“Now there is talk about extending (incentives). But this cannot be a permanent subsidy,” she said at an e-mobility conference on Thursday.
