Volkswagen is on the wrong track? China continues to rely on the internal combustion engine

Many car companies, including Volkswagen, want to develop in a few years, no new internal combustion engines, and more. To prefer a decision which primarily follows the political guidelines of the EU: only the electric mobility, will be ignored by the European legislator as we know, the balance of Emissions of E-cars and defined simply using zero grams per kilometre. Many electric cars, just charge in Germany, real with a high proportion of coal-fired electricity .

the largest car market in the world, could belong to the sole favor of the e-Mobility but soon the past. As in the previous year was foreseeable, changes in China regulations to 2023, with far-reaching consequences for the automotive industry.

the Chinese change their electric strategy

"In recent weeks, the Chinese government has adopted a number of regulations and in the context of a complex legislation in the compartments for a variety of drive technologies opened,“ says Jochen Siebert, managing Director of JSC Automotive in Shanghai. Livestock man of the Chinese Plug-In Hybrid: The Roewe e550 auto group SAIC will be sold in 2013 and should be able to drive 36 kilometres in purely electric mode before the gasoline to help with engine

This should also be done against the Background that the sales figures of electric cars in China have developed in recent years, despite the high level of funding in the hoped-for extent; in the current economic crisis, the sales began to pay for the electricity even stronger than that of the conventionally-powered cars. However, the e-Mobility from China is indispensable, especially in urban areas, where more and more gas, the air pollution would increase. This is planned according to the information of JSC in the future:

  • electric cars : in China, the New Energy Vehicles, referred to electric cars and Plug-In hybrid vehicles should continue to play a major role. Is regulated over the prior years adopted quotas (2021: 14%, 2022: 16 % and 2023: 18%). A massive promotion with taxpayers ' money should no longer exist but. "Although the subsidies for New Energy Vehicles have been extended to April of 2020 to 2022, but at the same time already in place for 2020, a 10% reduction and the barriers of utilization increases. The cut in subsidies is already since last year, directly on the production numbers," says Jochen Siebert.
  • internal combustion engines : 2019 introduced by the Chinese government a new vehicle category, the "Low-Consumption Vehicles". "These are vehicles that stay below an individually defined consumption target. This is dependent on the weight of the vehicle and the number of rows of seats. The more Low-Consumption Vehicles the manufacturers produce, the less electric vehicles you need to bring to the achievement of the quota on the market," says Siebert. "If a manufacturer produced in the year 2023 exclusively Low Consumption Vehicles and, for example, 100,000 vehicles builds, he must restore only 3600 New Energy vehicles, and not 18,000. The final regulation in June, goes further than the most recently submitted design, still with a multiplier of 0.5 was expected,“ says Siebert. The regulatory measures seem to be focused on the optimization of the internal combustion engine, for example by micro-hybrid systems.

  • hydrogen : Here, after all, a result Parallel to the energy strategy in Germany or Japan, where it also relies heavily on hydrogen as an energy storage. "Hydrogen is not classified as a hazardous substance classified as such. This opens the door for the Transport of hydrogen and the development of a hydrogen economy,“ says Jochen Siebert.

China for a German manufacturer for all drive types is extremely important

The development of internal combustion engines would actually be the core competence of the German car maker. As the EU continues in the future, but everything on the electro-map, is likely to outsource the manufacturer of this development, in addition to appropriate jobs, rather to China.

with the rate control in an electric car need to develop the manufacturer, of course, also in this segment of the market, your Portfolio could, especially since Tesla uses for its production in Shanghai, its success in China. So for about the next electric Smart Generation is produced in China, Daimler includes Smart plant in Hambach, France. Developed by BMW, together with its Chinese cooperation partner, the Great Wall a new electric Mini, as a pure city car. In addition, the electric SUV BMW iX3 in China starts and is built there also.
