Frankfurt (Reuters) - The pressure of sharper climate protection goals for the auto industry will accelerate the change to electric cars after a study by Landesbank Baden-Württemberg (LBBW).
The Share Battery Electrical Vehicles (BEV) will rise to 60 percent of new registrations in Germany and Europe by 2030, Declared LBBW-AutoAnalyst Gerhard Wolf on Wednesday. Last year, a good ten percent of new cars in the EU were pure e-cars. "The regulatory works. The manufacturers have the goal and pressure to achieve the CO2 goals," says Wolf. After the forecast, 2027 or 2028 could be sold more new current cars as a car with internal combustion engine.
Forecasting extreme weather to assist emergency services response in Tasmania
Extreme weather can occur at any time of year in Tasmania — to help mitigate this threat, meteorologists constantly analyses data to determine the likelihood of extreme weather striking.Extreme weather may occur at any time of year and can take the form of intense rain, major flooding, destructive winds, dangerous bushfire conditions and severe storms.
The EU Commission wants to submit a bill this year to reduce CO2 emissions by 50 percent by 2030 to 2021 instead of the 37.5 percent, which has been adopted so far. This is with the currently high proportion of hybrid vehicles, which only drive on a short distance with electricity and switch the internal combustion engine for longer trips, but not to achieve, the LBBW analyst explained. "The CO2 goals for 2030 are too ambitious, so the manufacturers do not come to the BEV share." The three German carmakers VW, BMW and Daimler doubled their model offer this year on two dozen pure E cars. By 2025, the offer will then triple 73 models.
Volkswagen and BMW had recently called more ambitious sales targets for electric cars with BEV odds of more than 50 percent by 2030. At Daimler, the plan of 2019 still applies to more than 50 percent of electrified new cars of the car subsidiary Mercedes-Benz for sale. From the models Mercedes wants about half of them purely electrically, the rest with hybrid drive. The Stuttgart Group must also stuck a higher BEV target, said Wolf. Daimler introduces his first pure-electric peak model on Thursday with the EQS, the counterpart at the luxury sedan S-Class reclined last year.
Europe had overtaken last year thanks to the state promotion of e-cars and hybrid cars in Germany and other countries China as a region with most vehicles with power drive. However, in Europe, about every second electrified car was a plug-in hybrid. The LBBW expects this drive to be more under pressure for cost reasons and growing criticism to high CO2 values. Therefore, car suppliers who depend on combustion engines would have to hurry to change their production. With one of new combustion models Wolf expects mid-2030s. Because by 2050 Europe wants to be CO2-neutral, according to the life of a car of about twelve years, that would probably be the latest date for new registrations.
China tech stampede into electric cars sparks auto sector buzz .
Thought Big Tech was taking over your life through smartphones? Cars are the next major prize in the battle for digital territory, industry insiders say, and the deep pockets and data muscle of big Chinese tech firms will fuel even faster growth in "smart-electric" vehicles -- and possibly hasten the arrival of autonomous cars. © Hector RETAMAL The electric vehicle sector has seen a stampede of tech giants, including major Chinese firms In recent weeks, Chinese smartphone giants Huawei and Xiaomi, e-commerce leader Alibaba, and even DJI, the world's top drone manufacturer, have thrown their hats into the ring.
