DAT barometer: Electric vehicles with purchase intention just behind petrol engineers-just

Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT) has analyzed the view of private car buyers on the electromobility in the current DAT barometer. An essential knowledge of it is that the most likely drive type of the gasoline engine remains: For a pure e-car currently 14 percent of private car bank planners would decide. This corresponds approximately to the proportion of streams in the new registrations of the past months. If buyers decide for an e-car, especially as a new car: 69 percent would approach a new car at the E-car purchase, 30 percent to an annual car. E-cars older than 12 months are interesting for purchase planner only in the small single-digit percentage area.

As the evaluation shows, with 44 percent almost half of the private car buyers in Germany would most likely buy a gasoline engine, with eleven percent only good everyone tenth a diesel. A car with hybrid technology (HEV / PHEV), however, comes for 29 percent, the pure battery drive (BEV) for 14 percent in question. Collections are put together and part-time current with 43 percent just behind the petrol. These are the results of a survey of more than 1000 end users who want to acquire a car within the next 24 months.

Apart from the concrete purchase intention, 47 percent of the purchase planner could introduce an electric car as a substitute for the well-used car. Important prerequisite: just under 400 km minimum ranging. 36 percent currently see electro cars only as a second car.

When choosing whether an e-car is new or used, the end consumers agree: 69 percent prefer the new car, 30 percent could also introduce themselves an annual car. An e-car older than 12 months would only be in question for seven percent. For example, for used e-cars asked, 33 percent see the only small price advantage over a new car, as they are currently still heavily promoted.

But also long loading times and the obsolete technology speak for almost every third respondent. The fact that young wrapping e-cars can also be bought with a funding premium, but currently do not know 56 percent of the car bank planners. Overall, the market for used e-cars (BEV) is still very small: slightly more than 3000 units changed the owner last March, which are 0.5 percent of all property transitions of this month. The used car market overall records strong growth and is over 670.000 units even above the “pre-Corona March” 2019.

  1. Well, badly informed people meet bad decisions.
    The suspicion of BEV (too long charging time, too little charging infrastructure, no range) was disloyaled by German OEMs and their voice pipes such as VDA, Ifo Institute etc to the ADAC and the trade press long enough and cheered.
    But so you have at least supposedly picked up some plugin grace period.
    Stupid only that the BEV manufacturers from China, Korea etc and the United States will develop and sell, while the old burner OEMs have to fight with the transformation (where only with all the combustion engineers?)
    It will be exciting to observe how the market will develop over the next 5-10 years.
    Especially, whoever still after 10 years
    will be in the market – and if yes with how much market share.

  2. Only the experience border the users. Our e-experience began with our Twizy almost 3 years ago. 80km range in summer. My wife found the so cute, so we bought a used. The first experience was: Whenever it was the Twizy was used and the burner left. The second experience: We have to keep the second car first “for the winter”. After carrying a winter with a heating mat on the seat, the summer through again and I wanted to raise the winter tires on all vehicles, I have noticed that the winter tires are still on the second car. We did not move the car. So we came to the decision: sell. The main car (hybrid) was replaced against an e-up and unfortunately not sold by the pandemic as fast as planned. But he was just rum. In our driving profile we have the experience that 400km is a Nice-to-Have feature. Since you can create a statistic of its rides in the VW WE Connect website, I have seen stretches> 260km below 1% of my ways. Maybe that’s also due to the pandemic, but still no feature what I often need. I suspect that I will at some point out of comfort reasons a bigger car with more range. 400km are completely sufficient. This is more of a comfort feature than imperative. As leather seats or the big navigation. Quite nice, but it works without. Far more important is the fast chargload in the event that you want to go further. So rather save the money for a big battery. It is a feature that is rarely used.


  3. Gave in O a survey, since it was 18%, which next to buy an eauto. And the more an eauto, the more the realization goes through, hey with those you can drive anyway. The XY is enthusiastic.

  4. First of all, if municipal fleets, delivery fleets, corporate fleets and bus lines are significantly electrified, from the load terminal to the refuse vehicle and bus, should not be underestimated in its multiplier effect: it is not to be industrially on the road compared to its own private combustion, almost Only one pedal operation VS. Constantly on three ruming, no dust stirring with such a stupid rod “It is still soup there”, called gear shift, no rattle and hum as a stress factor. Easy and quiet from A to B and Basta.

  5. The train is rolling and can not stop. That’s good. The resistance of dinos crumbles – has also taken long enough. Not for me is the whole hybrid dead end. Why the policy does not push this obvious dizziness a bolt I do not understand. And since hybrid hardly will be resell again, I do not understand why people buy such a thing. What leads to us in the next 2 years to new E vehicles to us hope.
