German Mercedes-Benz owners will get subsidy of 3,000 euro on upgrade of exhaust filters from Car Maker Daimler. The effort is purposed to reduce pollution and avoid inner-city bans following new regulatory laws on environment.

Mercedes-Benz customers in Germany can apply for a subsidy of 3,000 euro if they want to upgrade the exhaust filters of the older diesel vehicles, according to Daimler. The subsidy worth $3,350 is the effort purposed to reduce pollution and avoid inner-city bans after new regulatory laws on environment announced by German court.

Carmakers in Germany are bound to consider upgrading exhaust treatment system on older diesel cars following the rules of the German cities related to ban of heavily polluting diesel vehicles in urban areas to bring down particulate matter and toxic nitrogen oxides.

Daimler has also launched a new website to proceed online applications for the financial assistance. Carmaker said customers only from German regions can avail the subsidy where potential ban on driving of diesel vehicles is in work.

German authority KBA sought to approve an after-market kit to upgrade the exhaust filters of various Mercedes diesel vehicles. The exhaust filters replacement will cost 3,000 euros to buy and then install.

Diesel Vehicles are facing pressure in Europe as well as several EU countries have called for ban to be implemented in EU in order to curb emissions. Petrol cars are also on the verge to face competition from electric vehicles following the rise of environmental concerns of EU countries.
