Germans buy hardly any electric cars - but this type of drive benefits-hardly

Site Family carriage plus Tesla Minus Diesel: Can save this Passat VW?

The Germans have so far only encouraged the Germans to buy a electricity 1500 times. The registration numbers of e-cars are now even declining. The diesel also loses – a different type of drive is the secret winner.

For links on this page, Site receives. A commission from the dealer, Z.B. For marked. More information the Germans still cannot warm up for electric cars. This is shown by the current approval figures of the Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA):

  • In July 2016, 785 vehicles were 18 percent less electric cars sold as in the previous month – despite the power purchase bonus.
  • However, the Germans do not completely write down the electric machine, because The hybrids are the big winners of the current admission statistics: "3625 newly approved hybrid cars caused an increase of 26.8 percent. These include 1016 plug-in hybrids (plus 7.6 percent)", So the KBA analysis.
  • It also goes down for the diesel engine: "In July 2016 0.8 percent fewer petrol engines (51.1 %) and 7.3 percent less diesel cars (47.1 %) approved than in July 2015", So the KBA. A trend that also provides current markdolds, the site is available
  • This moves the ratio of diesel petrol engine on the car market in favor of the gasoline engines.

Briefly explained: electric cars, hybrids, plug-in hybrid

A Hybrid drive (short HEV, This stands for Hybrid Electric Vehicle) consists of an electrical and a gasoline or diesel engine. The hybrid battery is only charged during the trip via a generator, either by the gasoline engine or by braking energy recovery. Purely electrically, a HEV can only drive short distances. The car has consumption advantages, especially in city traffic. The classic example of a HEV is the Toyota Prius.

At the Plug-in hybrid ((Phev) the car has another plug on board: In addition to charging while driving, the battery is "loaded" on the socket or a charging station. Routes up to around 50 kilometers can be completely mobile before the combustion engine has to help again. Newer hybrids create up to 100 km of e-range. The hybrid battery of a PHEV has a lot more capacity than with normal hybrids and usually uses lithium-ion technology. That is why these cars are much more expensive. Advantage: Due to the full combustion engine, the overall range of the hybrid corresponds to that of a normal diesel or gasoline vehicle. The PHEVs include VW Passat GTE, Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-in Hybrid, Audi A3 E-Tron, BMW I3 (with Range Extender) or Porsche Panamera S E-HYBRID.

A pure Electric car ((Bev, stands for Battery Electric Vehicle) has only one battery as an energy source. Examples are: Tesla Model 3 and Model S, Renault Zoe, BMW i3 (without Range Extender) or Nissan Leaf.

278.866 cars were re -approved in July 2016. Compared to the same month last year, a minus of 3.9 percent was shown. However, the previous annual balance sheet has an increase of 5.4 percent.

Purchase bonus: only 1500 applications

The everyday suitability of the plug-in hybrids therefore suggests at least a partial rethinking of buyers. However, the Federal Government’s electric car purchase bonus has not yet led to an approval boom. Around a month after the start of the purchase bonus, the responsible authority received just over 1,500 applications.Consumers have been able to. Apply for the premiums in July. The funding applies retrospectively to electric cars that have been 18. May were bought. For pure electric vehicles with a battery, there are 4000 euros "environmental bonus", as the premiums are called – each of which is 2000 euros from the federal government and 2000 euros from the manufacturer. With plug-in hybrid cars, it is 3000 euros (1500 euros state/1500 euros manufacturer). The federal government expects about 300.000 electric cars that are bought thanks to the funding.

  1. Climate goals defined only to do green
    This shows the same failure of our politicians who influenced by lobbyists … This shows the same failure of our politicians who influenced by lobbyists (stabbed?), as in the refugee policy. Motto: First of all, if it is not crowned by success, subsidize again properly, the dead horse has to run at some point.

  2. And who come from the applications?
    Definitely hardly from private individuals – but from large commercial companies who want to improve their image with it …. There is no privately that I know who is interested in an electric car and when you talk to sellers in car dealerships, there is even: is not yet mature enough, the thing with the battery – ultimately far away from the normal fuel Cars and too expensive for that!

  3. That was expectable!
    Since the currently available electric cars have not yet reached enough reach and there is also no charging infrastructure for these and also for future range of engines (apart from Tesla), it cannot work any other way. Now practically only the manufacturers themselves are promoted themselves, which can calculate their fleet consumption low. So everything meaningless or that was exactly what in mind?

  4. The e-cars
    Are a subsidization of the automotive industry and completely unsuitable and too expensive for commuters and frequent drivers. A hybrid is good in city traffic and a diesel is ideal for the commuters with overland routes. Since politics is not ready to organize and make public transport properly and nevertheless draws all people to the cities, since the small towns and villages are thinned out in the structure of the authorities, they have to live with the fact that the majority of no e-cars are now moves . I do not subsidize the automotive industry or solar power. I am neither convinced of one nor of the other. And as long as the German government does not also use a diesel penalty, I hardly feel addressed.

  5. Before I
    Buy an electric car, I buy a donkey that is cheaper in the entertainment and arrives more reliably at the finish line. There are better drive types that work more reliably and are not more expensive either. The fuel cell was already in their sights in the 1970s, but everything that is less incorporated is kept under closure by industry.

  6. It was so clear
    that this funding will not bring much, because these electric cars are only something for certain individualists and for people without taste – since most e cars are just ugly – with the exception of Tesla

  7. Who a little
    of calculating not mathematics is powerful that the e-cars are something of nonsense. If the balance were positive, only e-trucks were running, e-buses over our streets. Because the weight of batteries plays much less or at least. Or how about overhead line buses like in the early days of private transport. That would be something for our city centers. Parking in front of the city and with O-Bus into the city. But then please remove all oil heating, tiled stoves remove gas heaters from the town houses. You can also run and tremble warmly

  8. The matter with the low sale of
    E-cars are understandable. Where should Otto normal consumers load his car at night if he does not accidentally have his own garage? If he should put a 50 meter long cable from the kitchen window to his car at the lantern or the parking lot on the other side of the street? From the 5 floor? Should all 20 families of a house do that? An entire district? It certainly looks great when a cable leads from every apartment to a car…Now seriously: as long as the shop either takes significantly longer than a fault tank process and you don’t have any otherwise none "Tank facilities" has, when at a few e-petrol stations, an electric car makes no sense for me. Apart from the nonsense you would do with my cable…

  9. Not only that….
    You can pay in cash or with a credit card at every petrol station. For the charging stations, however, you will need a different payment card for each station. And for home you will soon need your own electricity meter for the cargo. Then you can tax the electricity for the electric car higher than the budgetary current. As a compensation for the loss of mineral oil tax.

  10. Acceptance of e-cars
    cannot be forced. As long as the requirements are missing (larger range, faster charging, larger charging stations), the dreams will remain. Who has the time to wait 5 or 6 hours for charging for a maximum of 100 km range? This cannot work in this way, only for few drivers in the city. We drive a hybrid (without the possibility of the socket charging) and are very satisfied. In the case of predominantly overland and city routes, we are below 5 l, have a large station wagon that is not too overpriced even compared to gasoline and diesel.

  11. Hybrid solution is favorite
    A technical consideration: on the one hand, the customer would already be actively involved in environmental protection, on the other hand, a fully electric vehicle is still too unattractive (price-performance). The hybrid forms a great alternative.
