Plug-in hybrids seem to win upper hand in Europe

Plug-in hybrids seem to win upper hand in Europe-hybrids

Is it to Autmobil Analyst Matthias Schmidt from Berlin, pure electric cars 2021 will exceed the limit of a million approvals in Europe. But above all, plug-in hybrids will determine the market in 2021. This picture is characterized by its last market response in the 1. Quarter 2021 significantly. For the first time for 10 quarters, the approvals of plug-in hybrids were higher than that of pure streams.

The combined plug-in hybrid forecast for 2021 sees a 15.5% penetration of a 12.3 million. Market or 1.91 million. Units. Accordingly, this shows the presentation of various premium partial circuits from the German market. In addition, efforts in German manufacturers will perceptible to reward the purely electric driving. Keyword geofencing. Whatever so that the European Commission has regularly collected data on real CO2 emissions and energy consumption since January with the help of on-board consumption gauges. The aim is to fill the gap between the emissions tested in the laboratory and real emissions.

Schmidt assumes that despite this critical look at real emissions and high funding rates continue to experience an upward trend. In the further course of the year, thanks to the beneficial tax benefits for PHEVs, hard Malus’ and an extended product range for part-time electricity the paragraphs grow rather than sink. Refatching shows in the first quarter that part-time current layers in front of electric cars. In Europe, it brought PHEV to 248.058 Approvals, Pure Stromber brought it to 198.833 approvals.

This is the third month in a row in which PHEVs overtake the pure E cars in terms of approval. Responsibility for the decline in e-auto approvals can be found at least partly at the VW Group. It is assumed that a part has been retained to the electricity, as an update should only be made in their software. In Germany, the upswing of the part-time current led to each fifth approved car to experience an electrification by the end of the first quarter of 2021. For the second half of the year, continued rising sales are expected. Interesting is certainly the fact that Germany end Q1 / 2021 for 142.731 of the 446.891 electrified vehicles was responsible.

Below we take a look at the top 15 phev, after approval numbers, which were admitted by the end of the first quarter 2021:

  1. Well, I’m curious what end or. Happened at the beginning of next year if the real consumption values are spotted by the EU.
    I assume that then the Commission will recommend to prevent the sponsorship of PHEV.

  2. The plugin hybrids, like all hybrids, are combustion cars with electrical support. Therefore, those should not be promoted and should die out like the dinosaurs.

  3. How did the recently of the sales ladder of a large car dealership to me? “PHEV are subsidized tax fraud.”
    There is nothing to add. He observes the same phenomenon in his car dealership, which has already been discussed so often. Most PHEV are used by company car drivers and – except for a few exceptions – never electrically moved. Buy the fewest private customers plug-ins because they are simply disproportionately expensive due to the double technology.
    The ‘boom’ of the PHEV is based exclusively on taking effects of government promotion and lower company car taxation and in the end the vehicles are operated exclusively by combing ..
    Here, the policy has once again received an unholy alliance with the automakers to buy these by promoting a climate-contested technology in the CO2 balance sheet.
    My conclusion: The faster the promotion of PHEV is set, the better.

  4. After “Diesel Gate” now “Phev Gate”

    The problem is less the one-time purchase bonus but the halved company car tax.

    For employees, a Phev is often cheaper than a pure combustion.
    If you save money can then use logically to Phev, even if he can not load at home. But then he is not loaded. Who regularly arises for 50km range to a charging column?
