You may have seen a message about Germany’s new energy vehicles over the past two days. Media reported that a new policy on charging piles was issued in Germany, requiring each gas station to install it. He also said it was part of Germany’s 130 billion euro economic recovery plan, which aims to address mileage anxiety among potential users of electric vehicles and boost sales of new energy vehicles in the German market.
There are also reports that Germany will impose a 6,000 euro tax on large-capacity SUVs, which will be used to build infrastructure for all-electric vehicles. That’s what you can see on all the major websites.
But Mr. Bang wants to tell you that it doesn’t seem so simple, it’s just a small part of Germany’s development of electric cars.
German cars are feeling the pressure?
From 2017 to 2019, global car sales have been on a three-year downward trend. As a leading country in the global fuel vehicle industry, the Federal Republic of Germany is naturally a big trend, and sales are as affected. So how to seek a breakthrough in your own advantageous industry? Is a serious problem facing the German car industry.
Big boys are scared, too? This is because the situation is different. In the U.S., after years of appearance, Tesla’s u.S. sales in the U.S. have been unstoppable, and even individual models have sold far more than its equivalent.
At first, German cars may have paid little attention to the subsequent “squignos” of Tesla, and even the former VW CEO has reported that Tesla is not a rival to VW. At the time, Mr. Bang remembered that Tesla was only produced on the U.S. mainland, and that China didn’t import much of Tesla.
But soon after, Tesla went into production in China, and in 2020, when the global epidemic raged, the Model 3 had a strong success. Just as Mr. Bang was writing this article, the union announced that Tesla Model 3 sold 11,095 units in China in May, regaining the title of all-electric vehicle.
In February, March and April, it was either the first or the second. The sales do not pose a threat to the German car, but Tesla has shown the world that it has made a breakthrough in a second country outside the U.S., which is now the world’s largest car market.
This market is also an important source of profit for the German trio (Daimler, BMW, Volkswagen). In 2016, the German automotive industry accounted for 4.7% of German GDP, but has since declined. At this time, there is a pure electric field of the star fire appeared in the original trend, as the car as a pillar industry of Germany, can not be nervous?
Of course, The Bang teachers see the problem coming, and the strict German bigwigs naturally have held various meetings for brainstorming and various countermeasures.
All fuel cars are banned, Germany is not?
At one point,media reported that Germany wanted to introduce a ban on fuel car sales, but it was later confirmed as a rumor. But European countries have the plan and have announced a timetable for the ban. Is Germany stupid? Don’t know how to play new energy vehicles?
The Audi e-tron coupe concept is certainly not, and it’s clear that Porsche, Audi, Volkswagen, BMW and Mercedes-Benz are all developing electric cars. So not only did Germany not slow down the transition to the new energy sector, but from the perspective of the global fuel vehicle industry, the transformation of German cars to the new energy sector is relatively fast. Some people say that Germany’s electric car technology is relatively backward? Do you think it’s realistic to say that about Germany, which is highly technologically advanced?
The Porsche Taycan is in fact only the same level of power as Tesla, even beyond Tesla’s, and it’s effortless for the German car. The rapid introduction of the Porsche Taycan is proof of that. But how to achieve a high degree of intelligence on lower-positioned electric vehicles is not currently the advantage of German cars. So in the intelligent system software matching, for the German car there are still a lot of technical needs to overcome things. But research and development, to overcome technical problems requiremoney. On the one hand, Germany does not impose a limit on the time limit for the sale of fuel vehicles, on the other hand, it is vigorously developing new energy vehicles.
Mr. Bang believes that Germany is relying on its own advantages in the field of fuel vehicles to absorb gold, and then back to feed their own domestic electric vehicle industry. If the provision of a fuel car ban period, no doubt in telling the world that “German cars can not, cattle-forced electric vehicles are not many.” How can the top three Germans make small money in China? What do you want to develop an electric car?
The significance of the strong-an charging pile
To meet the demand for electric vehicles in Germany, about 70,000 charging stations and 7,000 fast charging stations are needed, according to the German Energy and Water Industry Association. There are 28,000 charging stations in Germany, compared with 14,118. It can be seen that even if all the gas stations are added charging stations, it will not be able to meet the demand.
But when you need to charge, you think, “You can charge at a gas station you used to go to, and you don’t have to bother finding it alone.” This is very convenient, also do not need to change the use of the car habits. However, Mr. Bong believes there may be another reason why Germany is building more charging stations on top of petrol stations: German land is privatized, and some are co-owned. This means that if you want to build a charging station on a new piece of land, you have to ask the landlords if they want to sell it? The use of the original gas station land to build charging stations, no doubt more cost-saving.
Of course, when the ease of charging electric vehicles and refueling are almost no different, the overall sales volume of the car market is likely to tilt toward electric vehicles. So why is Germany prioritising the installation of charging piles at gas stations? You can see this step of chess. Only by normalizing the use of electric vehicles can we meet the problems that will occur in the future and the possibility of accelerating evolution.
Germany’s electric car subsidies are stronger
In fact, the subsidy for electric vehicles is not only us in China. And Germany is even more subsidies than we are. For all-electric vehicles that sell for less than 77,350 euros (about 618,600 yuan), they can be subsidized at 4,000 euros (about 32,000 yuan).
Why is German subsidies so wide? How much is the subsidy? At this stage, electric vehicles are in addition to the field of fuel vehicles in addition to the new industry, it also enhances the motor, batteries, electric control and a series of industries, such as the economic benefits of these industries in the traditional automotive sector is not strong demand. So the manufacture of pure electric vehicles will have an additional contribution to the automotive economy. On the other hand, to improve the ease of use of electric vehicles will certainly promote the sales of electric vehicles, the more vehicles sold, you can as soon as possible to collect the user level of problems and improve. This will also accelerate the evolution of the product.
Volkswagen ID.3 So on the one hand, “Spurs Head” Tesla strong power, set off the momentum of industrial change. On the other hand, to improve the convenience of the use of electric vehicles, and then the pure electric vehicle industry to strongly subsidize. German car companies themselves are actually ready for industrial change. In fact, Volkswagen, Daimler, BMW and Ford have previously set up a joint venture called IONITY, which specializes in charging stations, and plans to build more than 400 super-charging stations in Europe. Are you all holding the group to keep warm, the determination is not strong enough?
Warning to China’s Electric Vehicles
Germany and China face different issues about the development of electric vehicles. Germany’s top three are sucking gold in the world and have a very strong technical strength. It’s even perfecttoan to see what your opponent does first? What is the opponent’s philosophy? What are the advantages? What are the disadvantages? How to improve?
Money is not a problem anyway, the study says. This is not a guess, remember when NIO recalled their ES8 and found three cars at Mercedes-Benz’s German headquarters?
NIO ES8 in contrast to the domestic, in many traditional car companies, only a few car companies have a decent pure electric vehicle. But the new power companies, which are not so financially strong, are trying to make some revolutionary models. And the new forcecar companies encounter the most critical problem is: lack of money.
Mr. Bang once said that there was a Tesla before, and then there was the Volkswagen, leaving china’s electric cars with little time and space. But Mr. Bang doesn’t think it’s too pessimistic. If the real strength is excellent, can represent the highest level of China’s electric vehicles, the state will not support it? It’s just now, just to see who these kids can stand out from.
