Dispute car Deposit bonus: experts – VW and Audi raise the prices

The discussion of a so-called car-buying premium continues. Markus Söder, Minister-President of car land of Bavaria, confirmed in the "world on Sunday" its call for purchase incentives for new vehicles: "We take old cars from the market and replace it with clean vehicles of the latest Generation."

The demand for a purchase premium as a pillar of the Economy in the Corona-crisis, comes especially from the car manufacturers and the Car länder of lower Saxony, Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria. Independent experts reject, however, the premium.

the Ifo Institute: the car-buying premium would be just a "straw fire" spark

The Ifo Institute about published on Monday a study of the potential impact of a scrappage scheme. Her conclusion: she would be no help, but would only make a "straw fire": "scrapping premiums boost in the short term, the car sales in the medium term more vehicles will be disposed of."

For the study, have evaluated the experts 15 studies, the scrappage schemes introduced in Germany, Spain, the USA and other countries. Almost all of the studies showed, therefore, that many consumers would have preferred due to the premium for just car purchases that were already planned.

"On the Party and the hangover"

this was followed by "the bottom line is, most of the studies give no indication that the premiums, the more cars are sold," said study leader Felix Rösel in Dresden. This is, for example, in the case of the financial and economic crisis in 2008/2009 have been: "The scrappage incentives have, at least, revived briefly in the car sales, that's for sure busy. At the Party, the hangover followed, however.“

purchase a premium for cars can also have unintended side-effects for other industries, the ifo researchers. "If you prefer to buy a car, in the Moment, less money for furniture," says rosel. "The Plus of the auto industry and can therefore be quickly to the Minus of other sectors."

fuel - and CO2-savings

Not clearly the impact of purchase premiums for the environment are also documented. In the United States declined due to the scrapping of the CO2 emissions, mainly because of small and economical cars have been promoted. In Germany and Europe, fuel - and CO2-savings could not be demonstrated. Environmental associations refuse to purchase premium anyway. Particularly controversial is whether Diesel and gasoline should be promoted. For electric and Hybrid Cars are already buying premium.

Söder wants to promote with the - from Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg and lower Saxony - proposed "innovation premium" of modern cars, the less CO2 to produce. "In addition, we could promote a charging infrastructure for electro-mobility by the state will assume 50 percent of the cost for private charging points," said the CSU politician.

survey shows: German anyway want to buy cars

However, even the German engineering Federation VDMA, is skeptical. As President of the VDMA, Carl Martin Welcker warned, in the "Frankfurt General Sunday newspaper": "purchase premiums for cars and comparable subsidies act selectively discriminate against other products, and generate deadweight loss." More useful are other measures, such as promotion of research and development, as well as tax relief, to stimulate demand. Everything about the development of the Corona-crisis

The economic expert Frank Riemensperger made on Sunday to have negative consequences for the digitisation of attention. "Compared to other countries, we are back in the digital infrastructure, five to ten years," said the German head of the consulting firm Accenture, the German press Agency.

car manufacturers to increase the prices

The industry Association BDI, by contrast, was behind the car manufacturer. BDI-President Dieter Kempf called for in the "world on Sunday" such a premium, both for E-cars as well as vehicles with an internal combustion engine. In the promotion, it should go in the core investments, and climate protection. "Therefore, it makes sense to promote these vehicles with modern and efficient internal combustion engines, if existing incentives for electric mobility will not be watered down."
