MUNICH (Reuters) - The German car-making states of Bavaria, Baden-Wuerttemberg and Lower Saxony recommend introducing an incentive worth 4,000 euros (3,518.70 pounds)to encourage people to buy electric cars, Bavarian premier Markus Soeder said on Monday.

He said people should be given an incentive worth 3,000 euros to buy combustion-engined cars that meet new emissions standards.

Chancellor Angela Merkel is due to hold a conference call with senior representatives of the auto industry on Tuesday to discuss the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on production and sales.
