VW is Europe's largest electric car manufacturer - at the end of April 2020-manufacturer

VW about e-mobility breakthrough: “It’s just a question, when and where first.”- so the title of an article from March 2020 here on electric car news.net. One month later, the breakthrough seems to succeed. Because in April 2020, the VW Group was able to claim one on the e-car market among the manufacturers for themselves and refers to the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance in second place. If you still refers to the PHEVs of the Group in the contemplation, the VW Group was able to settle more than twice as many electrified vehicles such as Tesla. At the end of the year, the VW Group wants to achieve six percent e-cars from car tax sales.

32.129 Pure electric cars have the brands VW (16.871), Audi (9.459), Skoda (2.665), SEAT (1.625) And Porsche (1.509) can be discontinued by the end of April on the European electrical automotive. Thus, the VW Group became the first place for the first place at the European E-Car Market. Analysts assume that first place will continue to be in the hands of the VW Group by the end of the year. This would go hand in hand with the plans of the company, which plans to use six percent at the total sales by pure e-cars. An important key figure to meet the CO2 fleet values for the current year.

For a predicted decline in the European market by 20 percent this year, this 6 percent target would be about 186.000 electro cars correspond. However, since less than 20 percent of this goal has been achieved during the first four months, the market launch of ID is expected.3 will be the most important catalyst in the second half of the year. Which first on 30.000 pieces limited order books for the “first edition” are already full. The MEB production of Zwickau 2020 still becomes 100.000 units predicted, as a VW insider reported – which volumes are intended exclusively for Europe.

According to automotive analyst Matthias Schmidt, it is expected that not all E cars be delivered in 2020. The reason for this is that the level of E-cars required to fulfill CO2 conformity has now fallen due to a depressed market environment. It is now expected that part could be moved to 2021 to support the achievement of stricter CO2 goals. The key for Volkswagen could exist in the ID.To market 3 to July if the state promotion for electric cars starts in the Netherlands. The meaning is even greater, as the manufacturers are trying to postpone the E-Auto paragraph in the summer before weakening the economy of the economy again.

For the alliance consisting of Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi, a little uphill could now come. Because France’s President Emmanuel Macron has assured the auto industry crisis aid. To cushion the sales break because of the Corona crisis, it rises from 1. June the purchase bonus for pure electrical and hydrogen cars by 1000 euros to 7000 euros. However, this bonus is only up to a list price of 45.000 Euro, only for private buyers and only by the end of the year. Currently, the alliance occupies second place at Europe‘s electro-automotive, with a total of 2.955 remote E-vehicles. These divide to companies as follows: Renault 2.021 units, Nissan with 934 units as well as Mitsubishi with zero E cars on the counter.

  1. Nice announcement, but unfortunately as often an illusion. Currently, probably looks more sad with the E-fleet of VW. E-Golf and e-up unfortunately no longer in the offer and the long-awaited ID3, will probably be waiting for a while. And what else is there on offer?

  2. The size is not crucial ..
    PR modes is VW big and that you are fighting against the downfall recognizable. But currently sells and produces VW mainly dirt shafts.
    Unfortunately, glimps and be with VW miles apart.

  3. A buddy of me drives a few months an Audi Q5 plug in Hybrid – on average with 11 liters of gasoline to 100 km – unfortunately, the battery supplies only a very limited range and who can not load at home …… Of course, this did not give him the friendly audit buyer before considering …..
    Then I prefer to wait for the model Y and annoy myself with the reach of our BMW i3 …… Of course, the friendly BMW dealer also promised us the blue of the sky, but there you are learning …… So never trust the promise of the German automotive industry!!!!

  4. The stupid to the car salesman is that you prefer to sell proper Eycatcher and often do not be correct about the technology in the picture. Everything is great for that, which lets you sell well. As far as VW is concerned, it will also deliver time, there’s a lot to do well again.

  5. “32.129 Pure electric cars have the brands VW (2.308), Audi (1.329), SKODA (307), SEAT (180) and Porsche (342) can discontinue by the end of April on the European electrical automotive.”

    Should the number 32.129 The sum of the numbers in brackets? But that would not be close. What do the information in brackets mean then?

    Where is the logic?
    The more BEV are bought all the more it is no longer the nerds but the normalos. The boxes of Renault and Nissan certainly no longer antun. This is technique from pre-Christian time – not for nothing that both companies are so topf.
    The promotion will get VW because the summer can have a lot of attractive vehicles in this price segment and can deliver.
    The luxury area has VW with Audi and Porsche anyway and promotion does not matter. In the compact sector, the market is rolled up in a few months. Zoe and Leaf can then get around the brosamen on the floor.

  7. We all look for the first duel a test on the street. KIA E NIRO, VW I.D and the 3er of Tesla. All with similar big battery.
    Hopefully there is no evil awakening. We wish VW the best, so that again a European can do more in the market leader.
    The current salon lions have gained their fight for the top with a technical projection. This will probably stay that way. So rather small and flexible, as big and lame. We hope that such a test can be carried out at the latest in “Junember” this year.
