2020 turn could be a point for electric cars in Europe - were the biggest winners, however, are Hybrid

In the first half of the year, new vehicle registrations of electric-powered cars in ten major European markets by nearly 26 percent compared to the same period last year, as a study by the strategy consulting firm Strategy&, which belongs to the consulting firm PwC. "Continuing the sales success of electrified vehicles, the European automobile manufacturers are expected this year, the new CO2 limits in the EU", said PwC automotive expert Felix Kuhnert on Thursday.

fleets-limit values are reached, also because of Corona

for Years, the car had put a peasant billion in new technology for electric mobility and CO2 avoidance in order to avoid high penalties by the EU Commission, from this year, these investments seem to be at least in the sense of the political requirements to pay. Of transitional arrangements in 2020 apart, may launch the new cars sold by the manufacturer in the section on the principle of only 95 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometre travelled. The German automakers Volkswagen , Daimler and BMW in the past year were still significantly with values of well over 120 grams.

For the achievement of the objectives, especially the ratio of selling electric cars with cleaner drives to the burners is crucial. The reason for the according to PwC, with 18.9 per cent upturn in the market share of electrified vehicles, especially the sharp declines of conventional burners in the Corona-crisis. For weeks, the car manufacturers were able to sell over the dealer because of the lock downs, no more cars. PwC estimated in the ten European countries, the decline of gasoline and Diesel to nearly 58 percent in the first six months.

BMW: CO2 targets not move

mainly manufacturer BMW is now the subject of a very self-aware. BMW has spoken out clearly in favour of the retention of the sharp CO-objectives of the EU, in spite of the penalties for the manufacturer which exceed the permitted fuel consumption of their Fleet threat. The corona crisis will not change anything. "We are not for such a shift," said BMW Board of management, Director Oliver Zipse of the magazine "Auto, Motor & Sport". "The BMW Group complies with its CO-Commitments. This applies to the CO-targets in the EU for 2020/2021. And also for the introduction of exhaust gas stage Euro 6d.“ Of a displacement of the tightening of regulations due to the corona of the crisis, the manufacturers would benefit, the "not prepared in a timely and sufficient," says Zipse.

Hybrid benefit, in particular,

in Particular, the increase in the controversial Plug-in hybrid cars provided in the case of electric cars for a powerful recovery. In the five largest European markets, sales climbed, according to PwC, with around 50 000 to more than Double. The German upper class manufacturers Mercedes, BMW and Audi put in strong drives to the rechargeable Compound which is not a guarantee that the customers drive the majority of the use with electric drive emission-free.

in Germany, Too, it goes with the electric drives forward, in the second quarter, according to PwC, a total of 26 percent. And since February, boosted and with the Corona-crisis in Germany once again increased buying premiums could give according to the experts, even longer boost. "Currently, the strong consumer demand meets a limited supply, or long delivery times, which is why the effects of public support measures in Germany will only be felt in the coming year, clearly," said Kuhnert.

US and China put the brakes on the electro-recovery

"in 2020, could represent, in our view, the turning point for electro-mobility in Europe because the European governments act now, coordinated with support measures, such as tax advantages and purchase premiums," said PwC Analyst Christoph Stürmer.

In the United States and the for electric drives, especially the important Chinese market, it looked in the Corona-crisis, however, is less good. In the second quarter of the new registrations of electric vehicles in China fell by 22 per cent, in the United States by 33 percent. In both regions the authorisations of the hybrid increased vehicles in June, but already. It is also expect that additional funding programmes are likely to increase the demand.

the climate benefit of the Stromer is highly controversial

Meanwhile, the criticism of the European consumer strategy to grow, however. It is less about the defence of established types of drives, rather than to the objectively difficult to justifiable political favor of electric mobility. Recently, the Kiel Institute for the world economy (ifw) spoke up and behind the climate asked the advantages of electric cars (Link to study).

According to the ifw researchers would increase in the case of a complete transition to electric mobility alone in the German passenger car business, the demand for electricity by nearly 20 percent. "In comparison to a Situation without the Expansion of electric mobility, this requires a stronger power generation from fossil fuels, if it is assumed that the availability of renewable energy sources is likely to be the same in both cases high. Electric cars lead to 73 percent more greenhouse gas emissions than modern Diesel cars. The reason: The climate is more gentle, to reduce renewable energy the proportion of fossil fuels - particularly coal - in the energy mix, as a fuel for electric cars", so the conclusion of the study.
