Study documents doubts about e-mobility-e-mobility

The majority of Germans (59 percent) can not yet introduce the purchase of an electric car in the future. This is one of the central results of the Continental Mobility Study 2020. In cooperation with the Social Research Institute of Infas, population representative groups of people in France, USA, Japan, China and Germany were interviewed for this. Above all, respondents complain about a lack of charging stations and the small ranges compared to petrol or diesel vehicles. Remedy and thus a higher acceptance could, according to Continental Board member Helmut Matschi, bring a better networking of E-vehicles.

Also in France (57 percent) and the USA (50 percent), at least half of the population is not yet in an electric car. In Japan (46 percent), the proportion is only insignificantly below. Compared with the surveyed Chinese – which can be imagined at 88 percent, in the near future, a pure electric car to emerge – Americans are not quite so euphoric, but significantly more positive than German, French and Japanese.

According to the study, there are still many doubts about E cars: missing charging stations are in four of the five countries studied the most important reason for people against electric driving. Only in France is the price that scares most people. Internationally distributed evenly, the four most important arguments of the electrosceptic: low availability of charging stations, short range, forced charging breaks for longer trips and the high price compared to carts with internal combustion engines.

“Really attractive is the electromobility with intelligent networking,” says Continental Board Matschi. “Especially with the range, networking is an essential solution for more acceptance among the car riders. It is properly networked from the already classic charging column search finding the most efficient route.”High-performance computers (HPC), which are used, among other things, in the electric series ID of Volkswagen, network electric vehicles in a variety of ways with their environment – and deliver the drivers such as fast information about the nearest charging stations.

Overall positive development

But overall, a positive development is to be recognized: Since 2013, the share of car owners who express a purchase intent for a pure electricity, in the USA (+28 percentage points), China (+27 percentage points) and Germany (+18 percentage points) increased significantly. In France (+ 3 percentage points) and Japan (+1 percentage point), however, only a small increase can be determined.

“The figures show that Continental sets the right future card with its offer for electromobility,” says Matschi, in the Management Board of Continental responsible for Vehicle Networking and Information. “And at the same time, it becomes clear that manufacturers and suppliers seriously seriously take care of the consumer and consumer consumer reservations relatively entitled to electromobility, the technique should create the wide breakthrough on the market,” adds Matschi.

The subject of charging station is, according to the Continental Mobility Study 2020, above all a topic in the metropolitan areas: in the larger cities is the proportion of car owners who have the opportunity to charge an electric car on their usual parking lot, significantly lower than in rural areas. This applies in particular to European and Japanese cities. Missing charging stations are called more frequently in the metropolis as an obstacle to the purchase of an electric car in the near future.

It is tried in all investigated countries to direct the buyers in the direction of alternative drives through monetary and other incentives from the political side. So there is purchase bonuses for electric vehicles in all five countries. In Germany, these were increased as part of the economic power to relieving corona episodes for the economy; Also in China, the actually expiring buying bonuses were extended. In Japan, politics also contributes to the manufacturers and pays innovation premiums for range enhancements. The charging infrastructure is also expanded in all countries studied.

The fear of inadequate range is another central argument against the purchase of an electric car – while most people can handle their everyday mobility easily electrically, as short distances are driven and at home or at work as well as public places – So where longer service life is common – increasingly charging options are available.

There are other obstacles that can not be solved by technological developments alone. In Germany, one third of the people indicates that an electric car does not respond to them because citizens doubt that technology is environmentally friendly. In France, this is indicated by a quarter of the people. Quite different in the other three comparison countries: Here it is only between 11 percent in the US and one percent in Japan who doubt the environmental friendliness of the Stromer.

The topic of electric vehicles has arrived in the middle of the company

The topic of electromobility was already a focus of the mobility study in 2011; In 2013, the settings on this topic were also queried. A decade later, the time has come again for an investigation. How do people in leading industrialized countries of three continents today look at electromobility today? It’s worth the topic of alternative drives – especially battery-powered vehicles – in focus.

There are several reasons for this: On the one hand, the dissemination of the electrically operated vehicles has remained significantly behind the expectations that had been formulated in recent years. On the other hand, the topic of ecological sustainability has been permanently adopted in recent years in the social and political mainstream, for many companies it has become a central pillar of the business model from the Nice-to-Have.

  1. The press release brings it short and just to the point.

    Many doubts the environmental friendliness of electric cars

    At that time, many wanted to create seat belts and do nothing against environmental exposure.

    Many do not want to vaccinate today against Corona – what people do not want today, they will only shake their heads in a few years – that there was so much unreasonableness then.

  2. Thanks to existing protection, of course, a hard core will always remain. The prices for exclusive burning finish are increasingly increasing rapidly. The higher the higher the consumption, the better. Who can, worries, if large reserve tanks for home – which is reasonably allowed, is practiced.

  3. Okay, in other words, the person pushes too much CO2. We can also limit that by the people soon can only drive a bicycle. That’s the scenario if we do not make a change to a low-emission mobility.

    Alternatively, the creators of the study may like to show how they want to make a low-emission mobility with alternatives. Z.B. With e-fuels or hydrogen. But then you may also like to represent what this is to build up the producer performance in renewable energy and how expensive then the E-Fuel. Not with the assumption that you get special conditions and tax relief for the electricity for the generation.

    Apart from that, no more 10 horses get me back to a burner. Far too unkomfortable.


  4. Of course my new is a BEV. Where I get away with the bike, I also come with the BEV. Is not the question BEV or burner. But the answer is BEV and burner or as an alternative, if you do not have 2 + x cars, a phew. The best of both worlds is only available in both worlds. The BEV does not currently replace the burner in Germany he supplements him. Drive on Germany’s roads to 01.12.2020 lt. Car registration report 400 000 cars more than 01.12.2019, which corresponds approximately to the BEV approvals. They come on top, as secondary things.

  5. I would have been well for well if man would give up in bulk animal farming, there is a lot more CO2.
    But that does not bring so much money as the shit CO2 tax ! In addition, climate change goes most on the purse of little people!
    “Diesel does not work” but on New Year’s BOller until the doctor is coming again normal ..
    Let’s superior how much fine dust is released!! I can only wonder ….

  6. I have no problem that there are people who reject e-mobility. Then the production capacity is sufficient for at least some reason for those who really want an electric car.

    Basically, this will run like TDI. First, the buyers were laughed, I do not want to drive a tractor!”. Now exactly the same persons with hands and feet fight back to give up the TDI again. You have just got used to at least 10 every day.000 kilometers without breaking beams ..

    Edit typo

  7. Study or opinion? At a report, you pay attention to what comes out. That’s why it says. In study, you want to study something, so learn.

  8. Where should the electricity come from for the cars? All wind and solar power is already used today completely and does not even coincide the needs of solid-drilled batteryless consumers in Germany. And now all people should buy tons of tons of batteries with car drum, which later are special waste and whose charging current is not available at lumen or at night and after 2022, when good 20 gigawatts are turned off?
