Built-in speed limits and green letters to Brussels: When car manufacturers are in the eco-frenzy

According to Volvo, Renault also limits its cars to 180 km/h. Officially, it’s about security – actually more about advertising for electromobility, says our author. Eco statements are currently large in fashion. And sometimes lying terribly. A comment.

Virtue Signalling, i.e. the display of your own values, is just the big trend. Especially when it comes to "green" Values goes. Who does not like to get involved in the environment or for the climate? When making companies, your own bad conscience is apparently so great that you become political activists.

Think green, but build the SUV heavy tons

For example, the carmaker Volvo, known for its heavy and HP strong SUVs, calls on a letter to the EU Commission together with other companies that this must prohibit all non-electric cars at the latest from 2035. Also included in this campaign are the furniture giant Ikea, the energy group Vattenfall or directly intertwined with e-mobility, such as ChargePoint.

Site Only Honda electric cars: But they don’t want to do without hydrogen

You can do that as "Important sign for climate protection" view or as a social responsibility. I personally find it more bizarre. If the priorities at Ikea are not on selling a chest of drawers, in which the ground does not break out after three years, but on the communication of ecological attitudes, this is not exactly sustainable. And how credible is it when companies like Vattenfall, Chargepoint or Volvo have politics "to trade" Request, but even from this action in the form of EU funding, electrical purchase premiums or other market distortion in your favor?

When the family man pays their Teslas with his minivan the rich

If the climate and the environment serve as a kind of mental-moral superstructure to boost your own business model, it will quickly be lying. Especially since this also happens at the expense of the fewer. Because the OMI with its old Toyota Corolla or the family man with his laboriously financed diesel sharan ultimately pays better earners their Teslas or Audi e-trons: via the CO2 tax when refueling or heating in the rental apartment, via electrical purchase premiums from tax remedies Or about the fact that two and a half tons of electrical SUV use and burden our streets, in contrast to Omis Corolla or Papis Sharan, but are freed from the vehicle tax.

Why not 80 instead of 180 km/h?

The crowning glory of the Virtue Signalling is currently the built -in speed limits. Sure, you can be for a speed limit, about half of the Germans are said to be according to surveys. But both at Volvo (the finging with the 180 km/h limitation) and Renault, the limitation is above all a top against German car manufacturers. Because except in Germany there are tempo limits everywhere – 130 km/h in Renault’s homeland France, for example. So what accidents do you want to prevent? And honestly – when did you last see a Renault that drove faster than 150 km/h? And the driver felt like it? Fun fact on the side: Renault’s subsidiary Dacia even fails at her own speed limit, because the Dacia Sandero is already running out at 177 km/h.

Anyone who goes on this path threatens as a company a fatal dependence on the green zeitgeist. If it were Renault and Volvo really dead with their security strategy, they would not limit their cars to 180 km/h, but rather to 80 km/h. Just to be sure. It shouldn’t take long for environmental activists to demand that – and Volvo or Renault would have to meet if they don’t want to lose their credibility.

Why the electric car needs a speed limit

Incidentally, it is not too much secret why the carmakers are so far with their new speed limits in Germany. So that the electric car on the long-distance route against diesel and petrol engine also prevails in the high-speed fraction, the speed limit is needed. It is like this with the electricity: E-drives always work with a very high efficiency beyond the 90 percent. At low speeds and loads in which combustion engines run extremely inefficient, the electrical advantage is therefore particularly large. At high speeds and loads, the advantage becomes increasingly smaller, and the consumption increases with the air resistance with the square of the speed. With the Stromer, the pace has a very significant impact on the range, much larger than with diesel or petrol engines. This can be clearly shown on the range calculator of the Site electric car portal.

Does anyone want an Audi with a built -in speed limit?

Audi boss Markus Duesmann recently drew attention to this aspect in an interview with site: "E -mobility will come with a personal attitude not to go into the very high speed ranges – and thus a kind of voluntary speed limit." It will be interesting to see when the first German manufacturer also writes a letter to Brussels.But if you surf on every green trend wave, you take a risk. If there is only a kind of unit car, with a built -in speed limit, reduced performance and preferably a preset "CO2 budget", That the length of the next trip determines, then at some point it will no longer need Audi or BMW. Then a Renault does it too.

  1. why?
    ""Think green, but build the SUV heavy tons""…Should in "Think green and build tonneshaw … ""Think green, but build the SUV heavy tons""…Should in "Green thinking and tonnshuke electric cars" Building to be changed. I also always lack environmental information on the fact that these cars loaded with batteries have significantly better acceleration values due to the electric drive and therefore cause higher emissions by the higher tire abrasion

  2. This is (still) the nice thing about freedom
    Nobody intended to build a wall, because the construction workers would have been busy with housing for the population (in Memorial Walter Ulbricht 1961) Nobody has to buy a car whose factories belong to the Chinese. Don’t worry: My electric car is limited to 150 km/h at the top speed, on the motorways in the NL, the top speed is just as 100 km/h as on the Brussels Autobahnring R0 and already on many BAB sections in D. In addition, “costs” 130 km/h instead of 100 km/h half of the battery charge. The main thing is that it remains voluntary…! Because we have more than enough!!!

  3. Real racer
    can be deterred by no speed limits today. 50km/h apply in the cities, but illegal car races take place. What lawns have to do with a rapid car ride over 130km/h does not open up. Especially since the accident statistics also reproduce a completely different picture. The electric cars will not bring less horsepower either, on the contrary. Fast acceleration trips (races) make it even easier. The cause is not the vehicle, but always the driver. Here the approach should be.

  4. When speed limit comes in Germany
    … then drivers who cannot live or want to emigrate to Afghanistan, Bhutan, Burundi, Haiti, Mauritania, Myanmar, Nepal, North Korea, Somalia, Vanuatu or the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. Then these are the last countries worldwide in which you can law. Although you have to say: not everyone has motorways and you have to get there first. But a real freedom freak with a T-shirt "Free trip to the free citizen" cannot be deterred by such petitesses.

  5. If you from yourself…
    … In terms of other people, as far as the quality of the discussion is concerned, one is not far from the low point. Ignorance, as far as the majority of the forists’ answers are concerned, also shows that some people have lost the feeling for reality. But everyone has their own way of perception!

  7. Nobody actually needs that
    To discuss. At the latest 2023-24 at least 70 percent of the previous drivers or. Owners no longer afford their own car. Petrol becomes priceless and electricity is actually already. Thanks to the exorbitant CO2 price and energy transition. The mass of previous mobile people with their own car will be drastically decreased because there are no sufficient charging stations. The power grid is not designed for this. Germany is a people of tenants. Where should everyone load an e-mobile in a apartment block with 150 units ?. Many will also freeze by candlelight in winter. The plan is probably free travel for capital and a policy elite, with armored service car U. Chauffeur for free. Beautiful new climate -neutral world. You then buy from Amazon

  8. Think about
    You only see your wallet? How can you be so selfish! How long do you want to destroy the environment so ruthlessly with the nonsensical burning of oil. There is only one way that must pay and not the developing countries. Please think about it and not just your wallet!!! You only see your wallet? How can you be so selfish! How long do you want to destroy the environment so ruthlessly with the nonsensical burning of oil. We will be able to release the CO2 of the millions of millions as oil and coal within 200 years. Combined have been developed for decades, they will continue to use only 30% of their energy in the future, the rest is waste heat. A liter of diesel has an energy content of 10.4 kWh This energy is allowed

    More to be expected for our politics for drivers. I don’t need this from car manufacturers. So for me these two brands are on the index.

  10. Tempolimit 130 makes thick cars absurd
    In the WLTP cycle there is a short phase with 131.6 kmh, no consumption and no pollutants are measured above. Cannot be that cars continue to be driven outside the specification due to common law. At the BEV no differently – consumption of consumption is related to speed limit 130. With a view to the idea of Euro7 = mapping all sorts of driving conditions, speed limit is without alternative. A long life is actually necessary for the car worldwide, usually helped several times in workshops. Here only e-fuel can end the CO2 drama globally, not the BEVS.
