Many German cities, including Hamburg, are planning to ban old diesels in areas with high pollution. Couriers have started making the switch to e-vans.
The two cities in western Germany are the latest to be ordered by a court to impose diesel vehicle bans. The German government is under pressure to get old, polluting vehicles off the roads.
The German government has reportedly found a new compromise aimed at keeping diesel cars on the road. Details of the "complex" plan are set to be revealed in the coming hours.
Germany's coalition government has announced details of a wide-ranging diesel deal. The agreement hopes to deal with the country's air pollution problems, without upsetting car owners — or manufacturers — too much.
First Hamburg and Stuttgart, now the diesel ban has come for Germany's financial capital. A new ban could affect a quarter of vehicles in Frankfurt, as well as countless commuters.
