Study: E-cars drive more profit than expected

Study: E-cars drive more profit than expected-drive

More and more manufacturers are terminating the end of gasoline and diesel cars. The industry is in great style on electric vehicles, but the transformation towards pure electromobility costs a lot of money. So the question arises: How to finance the autoconders in the transitional period and how much money remains at the end of the bottom line hang? In any case, a McKinsey study published in mid-September shows that the manufacturers at least do not make a minus business, but possibly (still) a mixed calculation be. In the future, the return could rise greatly ..

One of the Wiwo’s business week (WiWO) study of McKinsey management consultancy shows that the companies sometimes enter neither major gains nor high losses. The consultant comes with a cost analysis with 16 important electric car models in Europe. The study also shows that six of the examined models are sold with smaller losses, with eight models equal to costs and selling price (revenue) almost out, two upper class models List McKinsey even with a larger profit margin. On average, all cars would be allowed to leave a small plus on operational results. Incidentally, the contribution to the transformation provides the “good, old” combees in most automakers. The profits from the sales of conventional models usually flows into the development, research and reconstruction of the works. So far, this has also led to many previous models have been a bit more expensive.

However, the return on the sale of electric cars is likely to rise in the coming years, explain the advisers of McKinsey. Thus, the gain will climb to eight to ten percent of sales if the automakers continue to develop, production and distribution as before. Up to 12 percent are possible if new business models can be established around the electric car. Around new paths in the online distribution of cars, radically cost-optimized vehicle platforms, new shops with software functions in the car or with the car battery as electricity storage for renewable energies – to name only a part. Taken together, potential return on sales of up to 30 percent would result – a significant increase over the current margins. By the way: According to “Wiwo”, Porsche is currently 15 percent return on sales of the most profitable automakers in the world.

The fact that can earn money with electric cars shows in particular industry prime of Tesla. After many years with high losses due to extensive initial investments, the company is now awarded profits – we reported. So far, neither the Corona crisis nor the worldwide chip deficiency or rising raw material costs were able to change something. The effects will probably even show later. Like that too, half a year after ex-BMW chief economist Dr.Helmut Becker Profite at Tesla had excluded in a post, the car maker countered with the best quarterly result of the company’s history: 1.1 billion dollar profit! And that, though Tesla made many investments in new works. And with the new record numbers of 241.000 delivered vehicles in the third quarter expect analysts again with a profit of around a billion dollars, the economic newspaper continues.

This makes it clear that the business with electric cars can be very profitable. If you believe McKinSy’s consultants, these are only the beginnings. The manufacturers faced a very profitable electric car age.

  1. This is the thing with the boss economists, which do not know that car purchase is emotional matter.
    Cars are bought from conviction with purebred BEV-OEMs, so as not to support the OEMs, which do not want to participate in climate protection, and 100 years that already practice this way.
    Burner would have got cleaner, it was just no interest in it.
    Therefore, race to the free-running farmer and buy his goods there &# 128578;

  2. You do not have to study for this result.

    I have always been told that these whole trotting have set false calculations because they have learned such a nonsense in their studies.
    You do not take the Invest costs as a cost block but the re-invest costs.

    The investment costs in the fullest clearance make such a car of course more expensive.
    It requires fewer components
    It requires less assembly time
    It is uncomplicated in assembly

    The only thing that costs money is the programming and the tuning of the components and possibly the battery.

    But if you expect a mass production, however, and not so homeopatic quantities that produce our OEMs there, then will be interesting.

    It remains exciting
