The IAA no longer wants to be a car facility, but a green mobility show. Classic car fans are no longer taken with you. A strict corona control corset and protest events also burden the start of the show. Can Germany still be car facility?

Only a few more days to the IAA Mobility. The good news for the visitors: Anyone who travels to Munich for the car show does not have to spend huge amounts for the overnight stay. In Frankfurt, hotel prices before the car show went through the ceiling in the past and were able to achieve the triple of the normal. In Munich, on the other hand, the overnight guest with an average of 197 euros only has to spend around a third more than to other September appointments, the comparison portal Check24 has determined.

IAA: Hotel prices hardly rise

“We see increasing booking figures” can be heard from the Bavarian Hotel and Restaurant Association Dehoga. "However, the tendency is still behavior," said Managing Director Thomas Geppert.

In good times, a million people came to the IAA. However, the good times have been behind for a long time. In 2019, the fair, at that time still in Frankfurt, recorded 560.000 visitors. And 2021? The Auto industry association VDA, which aligns the event, is optimistic. "At the moment we can already record ticket breakdowns in the 6-digit range, ”it says. So that would be at least 100.000 visitors. One expect a strong increase in the next few days. "The experiences of the IAA show that tickets are mostly bought on the day of the visit," said the VDA.

Many customers are unsettled by Corona

Why is it that the interest in the show has obviously remained behind the expectations? The fear of rising corona incidence could be a reason. Many customers have the opportunity to cancel their booking at the last minute, report the hoteliers.

The lack of planning security is a huge problem for all companies that have to juggle with high budgets. Munich as an event location is on the brink. The Oktoberfest was canceled for the second time (2020 and 2021). Even in 2022 the mega people could fail again. Because more measures than now-among other things the 3G rule, so it is only a visit with corona vaccination proof, survived corona disease or a negative PCR test-are neither realistic at the IAA nor at the Oktoberfest.

FDP: No mask obligation in the fresh air

Martin Hagen, FDP parliamentary group leader in the Bavarian state parliament, appeals to those responsible not to suffocate the fun of the IAA Mobility in the corona regulations. "There should be no mask requirement for outdoor activities," he says. Most people are vaccinated, and who does not, they can be tested. Access restrictions outdoors would also prepare the liberal abdominal pain.

Hagen was the first Bavarian politician to propose Munich as the venue for the car show. Regarding Corona, he now speaks of a “conceivable stupid timing” for the IAA. He criticizes the Bavarian Prime Minister Markus SOder and his Minister of Economics Hubert Aiwanger: “I miss a real backing of politics for IAA Mobility.“SOder and Aiwanger should show more enthusiasm for the event.

SOder and Aiwanger "Should show more enthusiasm"

In the circle of the IAA cooperation partner, criticism of the VDA is loud. The Association with Jung von Matt and Fischer Appelt has scored two renowned agencies for advertising and public relations. But the question remains whether it is equally environmentally conscious customers and car freaks. "The program is not convincing," said a manager of an IAA partner. As well as? Electroscooters and pedelec can test drive in many places in the Republic. Why should you come to Munich?

Real bike freaks are more lifted at Eurobike on Lake Constance, which on 3. and 4. September to your festival Days invites you. The potential of the partnerships does not seem to be raised. For example, the ADAC, which prescribed a programmatic departure towards a variety of mobility a few years before the VDA, presents itself at various locations of the IAA. However, the organizers of the fair does not seem to have come up with much more to integrate the over 21 million members of the club.

New cars only electrically

Despite all the adversities, FDP politicians Hagen pleads to hold on to the IAA Mobility in Munich, even if 2021 should not be a visitor success. "You have to have staying power," he says. Nobody questioned the Oktoberfest, although it should have been canceled again because of the pandemic.

Incidentally, the automotive innovations of the IAA are quite top -class – but only if you like an electric drive. BMW Can’t take the butter from the bread from the boat during home game and rolls the BMW i4 and the BMW IX onto the stage. Mercedes continues its electrification offensive and shows the long-awaited e-variant of the EQ with the EQE. This limousine will not offer many more surprises because it will take over a lot of the technology of the EQ.

Micro-stromers make themselves steadfast

If you want to explore the future planning of the VW Group including the mother, it is worth taking a look at the daughters. the Seat subsidiary Cupra shows proudly that "Urban vine" And with this study there is a view of a city of E-Floh, which is supposed to be released in 2025. That fits exactly into the picture, because VW technology board member Thomas Ulbrich has announced a "small bev" at this point in time, which as ID.2 could come that is built in Spain and uses the MEB liter platform. In the past, it is smart, which with partner Geely present a series-related study by the small electric SUV, which is expected to be released next year. The Swiss city of Winzling Microlino is even more compact.

News with a petrol or diesel engine will not get a big stage on the IAA. This is consistent: With the new eco-concept, of course, the show wants to make an alternative drives. Seen in this way, the restart is worth trying – especially since many really funny and intelligently made small (and affordable) city streams will be seen. But the risk drives with. Because buyers are still in the clear majority of non-electric cars.

  1. As "suicidal" You actually have to be…
    in such a "Isetta" predominantly "Crumbly plastic" and (almost) "WITHOUT … crumple zone" want to put in. There was an age against it "Trabbi" another "Safe and comfortable car". Even as "City car" Would this e-cart be one "Coffin on wheels". I would like to "Crash test"-See the results, you can probably afterwards "saddish" in "powdered form" Eliminate with the vacuum cleaner. If the KBA still "a touch of reason" owns this "vehicle" are not only allowed for German road traffic at all…

    ..the fair is no longer (more) important. The transformation that you have imposed also has something ridiculous. Bye iaa, was nice with you for a long time. But you should know when it’s time to go.

  4. So you destroy
    Its keys industry and the associated host location. The solution is not the car for mobility in the future, the future is to be considered, further research and develop and never to commit itself for idiological reasons. Perhaps we will take cultures with bacteria in 20 years, who knows that. It’s a shame that the German automotive industry has also been intimidated by politics in order to quickly get green. I’m curious how all the construction machinery will be loaded on the motorway railway and elsewhere. With H²O certainly unproblematic. Let’s see how long our car manufacturers are represented at this market after such quick shot decisions without foresight.

  5. Technology openness?
    I have to repeat myself. Pure China-Kracherkuer-e cars are not the solution to all mobility problems. In the city there would be small 2- or 3-seater, narrow and agile a solution. And collecting taxi from front door to front door. They could be operated with hydrogen hydropac. Absolutely climate -neutral, fast and efficient. Long distances with the Maglev, as I read that in the sequencer of Kalmond Kess. A future novel with reality content and foresight. Many great ideas that can only have from scientists!

  6. It’s pretty short -sighted
    As in Germany on bending and breaking everything is subordinate to the electric car. As if there was nothing else. I don’t think that’s clever. Especially since reality in the world and also in Germany just looks different. The combustion engineer is still by far the most used means of transport. To punish this with non -observance is actually naive and stupid. Each type of drive has its authorization and we should use everything that helps the environment.

    As long as there is gasoline for my cars, I have burners for that long. I am not even interested in this e-car nonsense. Not even at a fair.
