According to the Ministry of Information Technology, starting from January 1st, 2022, Hungarian cities with more than 25,000 inhabitants can only purchase electric buses.
Forbes reported that the aim of the Hungarian government by buying electric and environmentally friendly buses is to broaden the types of buses in the country and, of course, to protect the environment.
In the summer of 2016, major European cities like Paris, Madrid, and Brussels required the decree regarding harmful emissions from vehicles to be cancelled, which the European Union approved.
On the other hand, the cancellation resulted in a shortage of 8 million vehicles in European countries, as the most significant car factories stopped manufacturing cars. This severe number would result in the complete ending of the European car business.
First Hungary, then Germany appealed against this step, along with the European Commission.

An interesting fact is that 80% of these buses were made in Hungary.
