Volkswagen CEO Herbert Diess wants to emulate Tesla and no longer want to produce petrol and diesel cars as soon as possible. But Audi’s head of development clarifies that the brand with the rings will drive for a long time. There are also some reasons for this.

For VW bosses Diess, the thing is clear: the combustion engine has no future, it has to be replaced by purely battery-electric cars as soon as possible. This expressly supports the EU’s subsidy policy, the billions of tax money to emobility – and of course also to the car manufacturers – distributed. The VW boss even speaks for a massive increase in CO2 tax; A somewhat paradoxical requirement, because it wants to significantly more expensive the operation of the petrol and diesel cars, which he still sells a large part of his customers. However, according to his own logic – analogous to the request of environmental activists at Greenpeace, who recently stolen the sale of burners in a bizarre campaign of car keys from the petrol engines ready for delivery – immediately.

VW boss: burner away – Audi: Not so fast

The objection within the Volkswagen Group is not new. It looks more like Audi, similar to Porsche, develops electric vehicles and diesel or at least petrol vehicles in parallel for many years. The magazine "Auto Motor & Sport" Quotes Audi Development Board Oliver Hoffmann: "Today we see in our forecasts that around 50 percent of all new registrations with an internal combustion engine will still be omitted in large markets such as China and the USA in 2030," said Hoffmann of the magazine. Therefore, Audi decided to further develop its internal combustion engines. The normal development cycle of a vehicle generation takes seven years.

Similar, although not quite as clear, Audi boss Markus Duesmann had already commented in an interview with site . "Europe is currently clearly the driver of e-mobility. The EU is the driving force with the clear CO2 requirements and the Green Deal. However, we see different transformation speeds in the regions. China, for example, does not change as quickly as originally expected. That is why we will no longer develop completely new basic engines for combustion engineers – but we will continue to use the potential of our existing generations in order to continue to offer more efficiency and more benefits in the future", So Duesmann.

What is actually hot "New engines"?

Whether a really new engine generation is being developed or not is more of a linguistic point. Because a certain basic engine can be further developed with appropriate modifications over many years without having to officially speak of a new generation of engine.But why these findings by the Audi boss and his chief developer, which can be seen as an affront against VW group boss Herbert Diess? After all, emobility works really well for Audi. With e-tron, e-tron GT and the new Q4 e-tron, the Premium products brand has its program, which so far cannot compete with Tesla in one point: with the electrical range. Tesla’s lead in battery technology and system integration is still great, the competition panted after. But design, processing quality, security and service are points with which Audi Tesla easily refers to the places. In the particularly electrical-savvy Norway, Audi even succeeded in hanging up the top seller Tesla Model 3 with which e-tron.

Audi – and thus of course also BMW and Daimler – could also keep their importance in the premium segment electrically in the future, even if the competition from the USA (Tesla, GM, Ford, Rivian, Lucid) and recently also from China (Nio, Polestar ) is great.

Audi could offer R8 as an electric racer

"Electro is the future-this will prevail and those who have once driven in an electric car usually no longer take the step back to the burner", Audi development director Oliver Hoffmann "Auto Motor & Sport". The lion’s share of the development budget in the drive should also fall on the electric drives and new battery generations. You can hear from group circles, that even a new edition of the R8 is considered as a purely electric sports car. The role of the Tesla opponent in the high-speed area is more of a Porsche and Lamborghini in the long term. But the Audi engineers don’t want to let the sporty butter take the bread so quickly from the in-house competition. An internal competition that can only be right for the group management – because this is how you fuel new developments.

Audi Audi boss Markus Duesmann leads the cult brand into a future that is becoming increasingly electrical-for example with the new Q4 e-tron

On the other hand, it is becoming increasingly clear that the forecast by many experts Disruption of the market – This will be the combustion engines within a very short time due to progress in the electrical technique – not as quickly as expected in all regions. A look at global number of admission shows where emobility can currently be classified despite regionally rapidly growing market shares: in the niche. The Federal Association of Small Mineral Oil Company Uniti calculates: "Only about 0.5 percent of around 1.3 billion. Motor vehicles worldwide are pure battery -operated electric vehicles (BEV), but 99.5 percent have a combustion engine. Even in economically developed countries, e-mobility is of little importance. The proportion of electric vehicles in the EU is 0.5 percent, 0.8 percent in the United States and 1.2 percent in China", So the association. Although hybrid vehicles are also included in the 99.5 percent, which can also drive as plug-in hybrids purely electrically. But whether they really do that depends on the real use of the cars.Many regions of the world are real electric developers. The partly double -digit market shares in new registrations are far from being bound in the global vehicle stock:

  • USA: Share of pure electric vehicles 2019: 0.8%
  • Europe: 0.6%
  • China: 1.2%
  • Japan: 0.2%
  • Australia: 0.1%
  • India: 0.1%
  • Brazil: 0%

EU, China and the USA as an electric forwarder

The fact that Europe is an electrical advance is mainly due to the planned economic approach of the EU Commission, which, contrary to scientific logic, defines the emissions of emobility in fleet billing with zero grams-which of course in view of the CO2 emissions and pollutants incurred during electricity production by no means correct. Car companies, however, have to work with the legal conditions, and they now provide in the EU that individual mobility should only take place electrically in the future. In any case, the electrical market share will increase strongly – especially in the urban area, where the city of Berlin, for example, only wants to allow electric vehicles from 2030.

The other two important electric markets include China and the USA. However, these countries choose a different path of electrical funding than the EU:

  • China if its taxpayers no longer want to put on billions of bills and therefore hires electrical funding. The ball lies with the car manufacturers: These must meet certain electric quotas in their models. In addition, there are local elements, such as new registration restrictions, of which only e-cars are excluded. The potential of emobility in China remains huge; In view of the size of the car market and the country, China will not be able to do without combustion engines in the future. So the government, which was hardly observed in the West, expressly excluded an end date for the combustion engineer.
  • In the USA the current government primarily relies on a billion-dollar expansion of the infrastructure, such as nationwide charging column networks. The strategy of large car companies ("Big Three") General Motors, Ford and Chrysler does not differ very much from the Audis, BMWS or Daimlers: For the car sector, at least in the USA, China and the EU (this market is only important for Ford), one goes from a rapidly increasing proportion From electric vehicles. You will see whether there will be disruptive effects here; After all, the electric Ford Mustang Mach-E sells better than the classic Mustang with V8, V6 or Vieryzlinder engine.

GM boss Mary Barra was already celebrated enthusiastically by the electric scene when she announced that after 2035 there would be no more burners. But the "Elektro only"-Plan was softened after a short time. GMS North America President Steve Carlisle recently made it clear in an interview that one "purely electrical future" Faith, but of course you will "As long as the combustion engines build, as there is a need for this". And there will probably be a long time in many regions of the world.

  1. Germany pioneer in climate protection?
    The goal of reducing CO2 emissions by 55 percent by 2030 is Germany’s contribution to … Parisian climate agreement. Writes the federal government, as the goal,. Can work? no! The electric vehicles have too large disadvantages that are known. What does the federal government do?It once again subsidizes the auto industry to advance the sale of electric vehicles. So many thinks to make a bargain and. get an electric vehicle. Are these vehicles really bargain and. Will remain bargain? no! There are no really affordable electric vehicles from German manufacturers. The infrastructure is poor to insufficient. The range of the electric vehicles is too low. The loading takes too long and. The vehicles are far too expensive! Dependency V. Power companies?!

  2. That’s right
    Good decision. The e-drivers will still be surprised. The electricity for these environmentally harmful accumoners will be becoming increasingly expensive and the disposal problem for the batteries that still unexplained to this day could become a boomerang. I am in order to submit the costs for this special waste one to one to one. You can afford green, so that shouldn’t be a problem. Or has Ms. B. Another idea of how this hazardinous waste can be used sensibly. And please do not come up with the idea of wanting to save solar energy with the old batteries, this is literally dangerous!

    I live in suedafrika, we don’t even have genuine electricity to supply the households, the electricity is switched off in areas for several hours (the so -called loadshedding). And that will not change in the distant future. The entire African continent is not a market for electric cars, so you can see the arrogance of the industrial acid…

  12. Planism VS. demand
    In contrast to the planned economy in Germany and the EU when it comes to determining the drive technology, other states are also open to alternatives. Even China wants to save its citizens’ high funding costs in the future and at the same time recognized that individual mobility means progress. Only the old continent sleeps again and has no concept out of bans. Then the companies will build and sell with the latest technology in the future where there may be a demand. The stupid ones are certainly to be searched somewhere else again. Europe is completely infallible ..

  13. What prohibitions? Alternatives are available,
    Only nobody wants to buy it – this FCEV with the cumbersome tank process, the high purchase prices and the high operating and maintenance costs. In China, the conveying heights were shortened by 20% because the production costs have decreased accordingly. Yes, Europe slept – some still wheels – as the Audi Heinzis just prove again.

    And then the route from Hamburg to Munich against a Trabbi. No question who is faster in Munich, because the R8 should be on the charging station for several hours. Such an expensive racing car makes really a sense.
