1:22 am
a rupture for $25.00 to $85.00 days. no one really no worries. on sunday, germans will elect a new parliament with johnson angle america. stepping down, the country will have a new leader for the 1st time in 16 years. center, right christian democrats union party is the most successful in the history of the republic. but it's being led by a new face mean lash at a decade and a half of steady leadership and economic growth has sustained the parties, popularity. now the c d u support has dipped in opinion polls, c, d u and sent a left coalition partner. the social democratic party on projected to win a combined majority. that could lead to political uncertainty with several parties competing to lead some kind of coalition. or they'll have made reports from the various regional capital munich if there's one place in germany,
1:23 am
conservative parties could rely on it's here in bavaria. but gail grand hello, says that slowly changing in 2014, he became the 1st green mayor of idol think a village near the regional capital munich. this model is vix if people are skeptical about a green part to me or here doesn't really fit. they were watching for what the green party can do in the countryside. and now some people say it's not that bad. they tell me it's good what you're doing. a new style more open, closer to the people. for decades, decrease in social union had brought support in this part of germany taking about 50 percent of both at each election, especially among farmers. like you are good bower. but with only a few days to go, he still hasn't decided who he will vote for financial feelings to me. and as a mom, there are many traditional csu voters, but they say they won't vote for the c s u anymore. i think it's also because of
1:24 am
cove it but a lot of things are not working anymore. the weight people want them to upcoming election will mark the end of the chancellor angle america, 16 years tenure and with her gone. many say it's time for change this. yes, you is a bavarian backbone of angle americans, christian democratic union, the 2 parties campaign to get a field one same candidate. but finding someone to merkel shoes has not been easy. recent poll shows the social democratic party is in the lead, even if the gap with the conservatives is narrowing. many put that down to i'm in lash at the c d u. c. su candidate who hasn't been as convincing. it was very focused on the person, we have a very strong personalization of this election campaign board is also a little bit new for our political system because we had here for longer the case
1:25 am
very strong parties at. busy busy the program of the parties was very, very important, but we see also in this election campaign that candidates and advantages and especially also the failures and mistakes of individual. busy candidates made it made a big difference. climate change in social justice have dominated the campaign. and some of the c d. u votes could go to the green party or the social democrats, or their shoddy. it's a shame that merkle doesn't want to run any more. cd you people are bit unsettled and are scared that things won't be the same, although they shouldn't be. renewal is important. everyone believes that from all parties. so it's good to have a new coalition. germans expected to spread their votes among more parties than usual. the election will be followed by coalition negotiation that could last weeks . if not money, is not yet clear whether germany's conservatives will be included with that. how
1:26 am
many edges you are by very in southern germany, ukrainian president followed me as lensky has promised a strong response. after his principal aid, survived an apparent assassination attempt. gunshots were fired at a vehicle. he was travelling in south of the capital. give the say more than 10 bullets at the vehicle, wounding the driver. the aid he should fear, escaped unharmed. it's not known who carried out the shooting. stephen might be more bustle. permission to call my toll paid him. what's more important? my close friend, sir. hey, should fear was shot out. so he's alive and he is. his driver unfortunately, is injured and hospitalized. the police are working at the site and a man hunts been launched. this is classified as attempted murder. immediately after my address to the un general assembly, i will go to the ukrainian capital one, who's behind this? frankly, i don't know who all these powers that could be internal. it could be external
1:27 am
saying hello to me with shots from the forest. my friend's car is weakness, but the response will be strong. electric vehicles are the big draw. the motor bella in the united states this year is outdoor post code replacement for the detroit merger show trucks that can reach speed's faster than most petro cause a, showing how much the technology has evolved, but present biden's big ambition to make them the majority sellers may still hit some problems as fell of our reports. michelle, everyone's big on electric, this year. e. v's, everywhere you look here at motor bela. the future is electric. the big announcements. big names from the staples through the absolute beasts. if ever there was a vehicle that looks like it means business. there you go. and this brand only makes evey's, which just goes to show, if they can do it successfully and make it their main business model than so can all of these guys. i'm off,
1:28 am
you can't move for them here. they're moving. oh job, i didn't an easy found giving this one the presidential approval back in may. the 2nd. how full trying to show e. v. 's. all for every one to 64 seconds in a truck. surely this is going to run the battery out very quickly. if you drive like this. but no, this truck has plenty of range, 300 miles. the aptly named lightning showing just how far electric come a lot of people don't expect this truck to handle this. well, right, so with the battery, the suspension, all the work we've done handles almost like a call the software to the swedish firm with its global map database that feeds real time information into e. v. 's to make the batteries last longer. we can tell you the friction level of the roads are driving out and that allows the regeneration system of the electric vehicle to be most efficient. so then it takes out. absolutely. because we are told these all the future he's convinced today i'm signing an executive order,
1:29 am
setting out a target of 50 percent of all passenger vehicle. so by 2030 will be electric, determined to relegate the gas guzzlers to the past. but big issues remain batteries for one, china supplies, 80 percent of the world's lithium power packs. at the moment, surely the u. s. is not going to want to be in a position where it's beholden to china. no, i don't think so. and i think that's it's really incumbent upon the global automotive industry to work together, plus recalls over batteries that can catch fire chevrolet and famously tesla know about that. then there is grid capacity or lack of it for a huge nation powering gulf. that of course there is the weather charging and evie in the right. absolutely fine, but it's when the weather takes out the power, then you're going to have an issue which we've seen recently, extremes from texas to california. that is one of the hurdles to it. but in a very similar way, if there is no power, then you're also not able to power
1:30 am
a gas pumps to run your internal combustion engine car. so of course, there are things that could happen. we hope that those things would be outliers, that they would be on the fringe and the fringes, anything but the final destination for these things. the future may be electric still some way to go until it's perfect. fed lavelle, i'll just sarah hall, jack, michigan. ah. top stories on us president joe biden has announced his country, we'll donate half a 1000000000 more doses of the 5 vaccine to developing nations. he made the pledge to virtual curve at 19 summit on the sidelines of the un general assembly. the additional doses will see the total u. s. commitment on vaccines.
