dpa/Jan Woitas The German car manufacturers want to massively expand their range of electric cars.

The federal government wants to take a million electric cars to the streets by 2020, six times as many by 2030. To do this, tens of thousands of new charging stations have to be connected to the power grid – which has consequences for consumers.

There are new costs not only because of the forced energy transition, but also because of the massive expansion plans for electromobility. In order to supply the charging stations for electric cars with electricity, the power grid must be noticeably expanded, a spokesman for the Federal Network Agency said. This applies to distribution networks and the large electricity motorways. Network expansion are paid by electricity customers via surcharges to the electricity price.According to the National platform for electromobility, one million e-cars are around 70 for the planned only by 2020.000 charging points and a good 7100 quick charging stations required. So far, according to the BDEW industry association, there is just a tenth of it, but the number of pillars has grown strongly in recent times.

Electric cars could make electricity prices even more expensive

The network fees are already making up for around a quarter of the electricity price for household customers. At the same time, the German car manufacturers want to massively expand their range of electric cars.According to BDEW, it is not yet possible to quantify how much the connection of the pillars will cost. The previously estimated costs for network expansion in the coming years without charging stations are already more than 30 billion euros. The Hanover – Braunschweig – GOttingen – Wolfsburg region referred to the "quick hospital" between Hamburg and Hanover along the A7.

The goal of one million electric cars is only an intermediate step. The federal government is planning six million electric cars for 2030. According to the Federal Motor Transport Authority, around 45 million passenger cars are currently driving in Germany, only 34 of them.000 pure electric cars.

100 electric models by 2020

Last year Matthias Wissmann, President of the Association of the Automotive Industry, announced that German manufacturers wanted to increase their offer to almost 100 electric models by 2020. "We will derive the future demand for electric cars from this," he said. “We expect that around 15 to 25 percent of new registrations will be electrically traveling in 2025."

In the medium term, the contract for a joint venture from BMW, Daimler, Volkswagen and Ford should be ready for signature for the joint construction of quick charging stations, said a VW spokesman. In a first step, 400 quick charging stations are to be created along the large traffic axes in Europe. Thousands of stations will be targeted by 2020.

But quick charging stations with high performance of up to 350 kilowatts place high demands on the power grid. This often requires network reinforcements, said a spokesman for the energy group Eon. That is not technically not a problem, but cost money. Consumer advocates require more justice in the financing of the network expansion: "The state, corporations and drivers have to pay, but not – as before – the end consumer about the electricity bill," said Udo Sieverding from the North Rhine -Westphalia Consumer Center.

State could compensate for tax losses

From the industry’s point of view, producing the additional electricity for electric cars is probably not a problem: the electricity consumption of a good 80 gigawatt nationwide is expected to grow by less than 0.5 percent, said the EON spokesman. However, there is another problem: Due to the multiple taxation on fuels, the Ministry of Finance ensures a rich income – which are of course at risk as soon as more and more electric cars are traveling. The state should try to get this money back in another way.

  1. Nice illusion
    This whole theater around the E Auto! Outshot costs at some point as expensive as the electricity … Make gold! But we can also wait for tax increases…. VAT at 35 percent etc because 50 and more billion euros in tax loss due to the loss of mineral oil tax…. VAT from the oil business…. Supply tax …. Yes irgrndwoher must come! Then comes the electrosmog badge? The eco terrorists still need something to complain! And in 2050 Germoney saved the world? Then we are poor but sexy like Berlin….The problem is that it interests the rest of the earth zero what the stupid Germans are prescribed! The AMI drives V8 and Africa apply our old combustion engines until nothing works anymore! Good night Germany

  2. Environmental balance sheet e-cars
    Unfortunately, you can still find a lot of incompleteness and ignorance not only in the emission analysis of combustion engines but also in the environmental balance of electric cars. The electric car today is based on the DT. Electricity mix approx. 20 % better than a gasoline vehicle and about 5 % worse than a diesel vehicle. Contrary to many “letter to the editor”, this analysis not only consider the CO2 emissions that arise in the company, but also vehicle production, vehicles disposal, battery production and.A. If regenerative electricity is actually used, e-cars already have a very good climate-based balance. The advantage over a petrol engine is then 74%. The climate expression balance of the pure e-vehicle is then defined almost exclusively by vehicle production. De

  3. "Made in China 2025"
    "Made in China 2025" is the name of the state-ordered technological catch-up policy of China, in which targeted technology and thus market leadership should be achieved. One of them is the e-mobile. That is why it is soaked there, so our industry is sweating that it does not lose the connection there and therefore all corporations announced a comprehensive electrical fleet by 2020 without exception. Germany’s economy depends on the vehicle industry. And the German motor vehicle industry is the diesel engine. That is the problem, not whether one or the other finds that the electricity that is too expensive will become even more expensive.

  4. Intermediate balance sheet on the electric vehicle
    With electricity from the DT. Electricity mix is an electric drive irresponsible eyewash and both in CO2 emissions and in many other pollutants than the concepts that we have today. Even the most optimistic scenario – not created by technicians, not created by fantasy, assumes that in 2030 we have a maximum of around 30 % electric vehicles, 30 % hybrid and the rest still conventional drives. Where general euphoria can be seen in Europe, I have a mystery. The proportion of new registrations is everywhere in the area of 1-2 % and less. Only in Norway is the proportion of approx. 22% due to massive subsidy. So far, state funding has proven to be a shop keeper. Until January 2017 there were 9000 (!) Applications, 5100 for e-cars and 3900 for hybrids!

  5. Production
    Well then please also inquire what the production of the entire vehicles, including the battery of the electricity, is pushing out to CO2 and accounting correctly. Especially in the mentioned Tesla, the manufacture and disposal of the battery creates so much CO2 that is only amortized after eight years. What a coincidence. A term of around eight years is forecast on the battery. Oh well

  6. Natural gas as an alternative?
    The natural gas vehicle is certainly an important building block in future mobility concepts. Unfortunately, however, a prime example of a concept that is allowed to "non -life and not die". The customer has not accepted this drive for decades! One of the main reasons is certainly due to the small number of petrol stations (approx. 900 in Germany) and the low range. Exactly the problems that possible customers in the electric car call today and which caused the decline of the first electric vehicles a hundred years ago. The view of low fuel costs through extreme tax subsidy (energy tax: 1.55 ct/kWh compared to 4.8 (diesel) and 7.4 ct/kWh (OTTO

    In my opinion, the electric car will remain unattractive for normal citizens, as long as the electricity price is driven by politics, the range is out of the question and there is no standard for charging. The electricity price is at least only upwards: If less electricity is used in the long run, you just think of new taxes. If more electricity is needed, you buy it expensive from abroad, where you gave it away when too much is produced. We have a power lobby that, from this point of view. The idea is good, only our policy is not and stands in the way of success.

  8. e car just scrap
    Got an e car on the weekend because my SUV gets a trailer coupling. Allegedly range 300km took my family and were only 90 km of range after 1 hour with the air conditioning switched on, quickly home without air conditioning and to the socket. People what a shit as long as things don’t create 800km and are not charged in 10 minutes. I drive my diesel until the end of my day .No matter what the politicians with so much nonsense you have to rebel.P.s now I get a comment from El Miere who seems to have a flat rate.

    The topic is important to me. However, I would rather discuss spelling with you first. You can continue to use your diesel. After all, is a proud achievement of German mechanical engineering. Others now take care of the development of future technologies until they have their maturity that someone like them can handle it too.

  10. high costs?
    While petty is being complained about the – only hypothetical – increase in the costs of electricity and infrastructure, the Chinese struggle to the car technology leadership. The diesel, pride of German mechanical engineering, soon nobody wants to have anymore. And when something is finally done for the climate and the air pollution control of the cities, why I only waste a single thought of the supposed advantages of a backward combustion engine?

    Joy and enjoyment yesterday on the highway from the Baltic Sea to Stuttgart to have seen 3 electric cars with warning indicators that no longer had a juice! I fueled my diesel in Lutjenburg and still had 7 liters in the tank after 824 km! Each of the environmental hippies and the taxpayer E -Mobil has a worse environmental balance than my diesel!

    Electromobility should be promoted quickly for another reason. Graduated 70% of our jobs and thus our prosperity depend on mechanical engineering and the car industry. We should therefore make sure to sell vehicles with drives that will be attractive worldwide in the future, especially in China. There, doubts about the electric car are wiped off the table without further ado. And diesel cars – the pride of the German manufacturers – are only available in Europe anyway.

    German mechanical engineering is the diesel engine. But it will disappear, thanks to the diesel scandal and higher environmental regulations. In return, all committed diesel cars would have to buy to save the jobs. This only happens until China flooded our market with much cheaper, better, more attractive cars. It is better to jump on the train beforehand.
