Daimler: No new development at plug-in hybrid-plug-in

Cars with the combination of combination and electric motor are gladly advertised as the best of two worlds: You can drive locally free of emission in everyday life – but thanks to piston motors also longer routes. Undisputed these plug-in hybrids are by no means. Monore critics, they would be moved too often in combustion mode rather than with electric drive. Nevertheless, the government promotes the “double hearts” with high sums. In the auto industry, however, the concept – such as classical burners – governing as a run-up model. Daimler, for example, does not want to develop new plug-in hybrids more, reports “Ecomento.DE “, at the supplier ZF, however, the technology should find longer a longer time.

Daimler has introduced numerous plug-in hybrid versions of existing models in recent years, the E range rises in the new C-Class up to 100 kilometers. This should be achieved by the technical highlight. “There are no further new developments planned,” the development leader Markus Schafer Ziteiert. The investments were made and would also be used. In the end, it is also a cost burden for the vehicle, the manager. Concentrating on pure battery cars is significantly less complex.

Currently, the Daimler core brand Mercedes-Benz also sells classic burners and hybrid, corporate boss OLA Kallenius accelerated but the electrification of the premium Herseller: until 2022 Mercedes-Benz wants to sell in all operated segments Battery electric vehicles. From 2025 all new vehicle architectures should be only electrical and the customers for each model have a fully electric alternative to choose from.

Meanwhile, the car supplier ZF sees a future for plug-in hybrids to the coming decade. Due to its own order backlog, he assumes that the vehicles “go far beyond 2030 in many parts of the world play an important role in the electrification of individual mobility” is quoted, ZF boss Wolf-Henning Scheider quoted. However, he deals from larger electric ranges of more than 100 kilometers.

In Germany, plug-in hybrids will be promoted several years despite the criticism of environmental compatibility – but the prerequisites are strict: when buying up to 31. December 2021 is the electrical minimum distance 40 kilometers. Afterwards and before the 1. January 2025 this value increases to 60 kilometers, after the 1. January 2025 then to 80 kilometers. It also also applies that the maximum CO2 emission does not exceed 50 grams per kilometer.

  1. From the article:

    “Daimler, for example, does not want to develop new plug-in hybrids more, reports” Ecomento.DE “, at the supplier ZF, however, the technology should find longer a longer time.”

    However, the last sentence part should be better &# 128578;
    “The supplier ZF, on the other hand, wants the technology sell for a long time as often as possible, Because he has probably (always) found no sustainable transformation into the future of the Eautos.«

  2. I’ve driven “normal” hybrid for years. I felt for then conditions as “the best of both worlds”. For a gasoline super consumption and exhaust values and temporarily silent (which arouses the desire, the burner may be silent forever).

    I felt the much more expensive plugin rather than “the worst from both worlds”. Because that was disproportionately much more expensive for a few km. And he still had the maintenance bombs on board (and really modest allocation values).

    100km are not bad now, but I still ask myself the question: where is the meaning now? I drive much long distance, then I almost do not use the electrical part. I drive a lot of short distance, I always drag a burner pointless with me. Larger battery pure and away with the burner.

  3. Whether the Phevs still have any significant approvals in the next year, that depends on the general election. If the new government strokes the chat-e-cars the promotion and tax benefits, then hardly a company should buy these vehicles – would be better for the environment.

  4. The times hopefully change not only in the statements of the automotive industry.
    But this message is very critical.
    So I mean the end of the further development of the hybrid class.
    Namely yesterday was announced that the EU voted against the newer sharper rules in vehicle emissions. And on the same day of this report ????
    What does that mean?
    Probably the VDA has enforced its demands not further urging the carmaker, about with a higher electric range, so that the car uses less fossil fuel.
    This was actually the goal of the new emission values.
    But this is only very difficult to fulfill. The cars are already very packed with all sorts of shit.
    For example, the VW, for example, the massage seats &# 128521;
    Here the VDA and other lobby associations won. The automotive industry has no further space for additional reach by increasing the battery capacity.
    So the dirty burners are further built with low emission-low range.
    To relieve the industry, for the board bonuses and the dividends, against a healthy life on this planet.
    To the disadvantage of the planet and the lungs of our children and grandchildren who will continue to breathe the dirty exhausts at the level of exhaust pipes.
    You have to ask yourself where people live, who buy such cars for these criteria.
    Live in the car?
    So for me is certain: the car remains a means of transportation, I live with my family in an apartment and trying to meet nature of the I live. Everything else is no longer part of a world we have already destroyed by our material greed for the most part.
