Asian markets mixed as Fed hikes loom, China growth slows

  Asian markets mixed as Fed hikes loom, China growth slows Asian investors started the week on a cautious note Monday as they assessed the outlook ahead of an expected series of interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve, while data showed growth in China's economy slowed at the end of last year. Data showed Monday that the world's number-two economy expanded 8.1 percent last year -- its best rate in 10 years -- but slowed in the final three months as it was hit by virus lockdowns around the country and weakness in the crucial property sector.

The Volkswagen Group has in the past fiscal year with the help of a significantly higher electrical quota at the car heel the sharper requirements of the CO2 Fleet value fulfilled in the European Union.

472.300 Electric cars and plug-in hybrids different group marks were sold in 2021 in the EU member states and Norway and Iceland - 64 percent more than in the previous year.

This increased its share in the total sales from 10.1 to 17.2 percent, as the VW Group communicated in Wolfsburg. According to preliminary figures, the average CO2 emissions of the car new car fleet in the EU were after the new, sharper standard WLTP thus at 118.5 grams per kilometer. These are about 2 percent less than the legal target value. Brussels still needs to confirm this value.

The VW brand came 2021 on average new car fleet emissions of 113 grams of CO2 in the EU, 5.5 grams less than the target value. VW itself delivered 369,000 e-cars (plus 73 percent), of which around 106,000 plug-in hybrids and 263,000 pure electric cars.

CO2 specifications of the EU in the Group and core brand 2021 complied with

Volkswagen has complied with its sold new cars 2021 the custom CO2 fleet goals of the EU according to its own information both in the entire group and in the core brand. This showed preliminary data, the Wolfsburg announced on Monday. In 2020, the group had missed the specifications in the sum, while the main division VW cars had already fulfilled them.

as it was now said, the average carbon dioxide emissions reached last year should have lone to all delivered new passenger cars in the EU states after the first calculations at 118.5 grams per kilometer dangerous. This is slightly below the threshold of 120.8 grams per kilometer applicable to the Group.

E cars: VW works with Bosch in Salzgitter and Stuttgart on production systems for battery cells

 E cars: VW works with Bosch in Salzgitter and Stuttgart on production systems for battery cells Volkswagen wants to become independent of the transformation to an e-auto manufacturer independent of Far East. Most of the battery cell manufacturers are sitting in China and South Korea. Industry giants such as Catl and LG Chem have an overwhelming market power.

However, a direct comparison with the previous year's figures is hardly possible because 2020 still had other test basics for determining emissions. According to the old system (NEFZ), a high value had come out for the VW Group: good a gram over the target of 98.8 grams, for the relevant CO2 pool formed with smaller manufacturers, it was half a gram too much . Officially, VW named 99.9 grams for the EU, Norway and Iceland.

, on the other hand, the new numbers are based on the so-called WLTP standard, which instead of measurements on the test bench moves the actual driving operation of the car to the center. The determined exhaust emission can then be higher - for example because distances under load, with start / deceleration or higher tempo be included. In addition, Great Britain was no longer in the EU, so that its data last did not take into account in this category.

The VW core mark had already completed the year 2020 within the permissible limits. She first reached - also thanks to the start of the fully electric ID series - a fleet of 92 grams per kilometer, 5 grams under the target applicable to you. According to WTLP criteria and for the year 2021, a value of 113 grams had been established for the EU new car fleet, the company reported. Accordingly, 119 grams.

The EU Commission in Brussels must still confirm the exhaust values ​​of the automakers. In the European Union, there have been strengthened specifications for CO2 emissions since 2020. In the industry, this should be at 95 grams per hazardous kilometer. However, there are transitional rules, and each manufacturer must meet individual goals depending on the market position and severity of the vehicles produced.

In addition, there were "SuperCredits" to set up E models, which can be pressed by the relative contribution of burners. Soft real CO2 values ​​overall far from the goals, penalties that can add up to millions of billions in the case of large tensions.
