Germany and other European countries to promote the pure electric car policy is very radical, why?

2022-06-12 0 By

European car companies represented by Germany are almost Kings in the era of fuel cars. They have almost no rivals except Japan, so they have huge advantages in fuel cars.In terms of electric vehicles, the current advantages are almost not obvious, but the policies are still radical, such as mandatory construction of charging piles in Gas stations in Germany, mandatory installation of charging piles in new residential buildings in the UK, and Norway will ban the sale of fuel cars from 2025.It is easy to understand why we are pushing electric cars, as China’s automobile technology lags far behind that of major developed countries.So why is Europe pushing electric cars as hard as we are?A, phenomenon interpretation: new energy vehicles such as landslide tsunami hit, who can not keep up with the wave we all know, the electrification of new energy vehicles like landslide tsunami hit, who does not keep up with this wave, who will fall into the trough, finally unable to get after a fall.Look at these numbers: In 2021, Tesla sold 936,000 neVs, making it the world’s largest seller of NEVs.In 2021, Toyota motor sold 10.495 million vehicles, ranking first in the world in total sales volume, 11 times that of Tesla.However, Tesla hit the trillion-dollar mark on October 25, 2021.If you can calculate, The market value of Tesla is equal to the combined value of the world’s no.2 Toyota to the 10th largest car company, which is absolutely an appalling value that has never been seen in the automotive industry in decades.Consider these figures: BYD sold 594,000 neVs in 2021, making it the world’s second largest seller of neVs.In 2021, Volkswagen will sell 8.885 million vehicles, ranking second in the world in total vehicle sales.On November 22, 2021, BYD company closed at 307.9 yuan, up 3.73%, with a market value of 896.3 billion yuan, or about us $140.36 billion, surpassing Volkswagen’s US $134.41 billion, making it the third largest train company in the world.In the second half of 2021, Volkswagen also pushed its new pure electric series crazily. The price of its ID series in China was the lowest in the world, and it even offered a preferential policy of replacing the price of electric cars with oil cars. Only in December 2021 did it recover a game, ranking the third among global car companies in terms of market value.Looking at this table, we can see that the world’s top 20 auto companies with market capitalization, not to mention BYD, a Chinese auto company founded for 20 years, NiO, which was founded for 7 years, xiaopeng Automobile, which was founded for 3 and a half years, are also among the world’s top 20.The market value of Nio, which sells just over 10,000 cars a month, is higher than that of Honda and Volvo, which sell hundreds of thousands of cars a month. Xiaopeng, whose annual sales are less than a fraction of large car companies, has a market value higher than that of Nissan and SAIC.Let alone the doubts of traditional car companies, even I, who have been mixed up in the auto industry for more than 10 years, feel that why should this be?But the world xixi, all for profit;The world is bustling, all for profit.That is to say, car companies can not respond to the call of the country, can not low-carbon environmental protection, but it is impossible not to go to the most profitable road.So it’s not surprising that traditional car companies are going crazy in the face of this trend.Toyota, which will sell more than 10 million vehicles IN 2021, said sourly that Tesla’s victory was not a force. At the same time, it also began to desperately transform itself. IN the next 10 years, it will aim for ALL IN electric cars, and ALL its models will basically transform into new energy vehicles.The CEO of Volkswagen, which sold 8.88 million cars in 2021, shouted a slogan of “life or death” to his employees. If they do not speed up the transformation of new energy vehicles and catch up with Tesla, they will lose their jobs.Second, in the wave of new energy vehicles, why is the policy of promoting pure electric vehicles in Europe more radical?You know what?In fact, in the automotive industry, there is a word often hanging in the mouth called compliance.At present, under the framework of the Paris Agreement, all countries have set targets for energy conservation and emission reduction. For a long time, carbon emissions have a direct relationship with GDP.It just so happens that cars account for a large proportion of energy consumption, so reducing emissions is a top priority for the industry.Here’s a look at each country’s targets from the Internet, and you can see that they all exceed 25%.For automobile enterprises, the enthusiasm for reducing fuel consumption is still very low at the present stage. After all, when buying a car, consumers prefer cars with large displacement and full power, rather than fuel economy.Therefore, countries need to adopt administrative measures to push enterprises to reduce emissions, that is, to force enterprises to produce compliant models, in order to achieve the overall emission reduction target.In the general trend of emission reduction, enterprises have no choice. For technology, the efficiency of the combination of engine and gearbox has been improved to the highest level, and it is difficult to improve the cost.As a result, the world’s three leading automotive regions are all looking for fuel-efficient routes.Early on, it was clear that Europe was going the diesel route, improving thermal efficiency at the engine level to achieve fuel savings.Japan is going in the direction of hybrid, the use of motor combination, to expand the high efficiency range of the system.The US went with three-cylinder turbocharging + cylinder deactivation + multi-gear transmission.Our country is trying to promote new energy vehicles.As we all know, diesel engines in Europe were wiped out because of the emissiongate scandal, and Volkswagen paid a huge fine for it, and the diesel technology route failed.Although there was no fine in the United States, Chinese consumers did not pay for the three-cylinder models of GM and Ford, resulting in a rapid decline in sales. Gm switched back to four-cylinder models, while Ford could not recover for a long time.In contrast, only Japanese hybrids have succeeded without causing a dramatic change in the market.The route has failed, but the target remains the same.The more time passes, the more pressure companies face.The climate deal itself is Europe’s idea, and if it doesn’t behave, it’s a global joke.However, of these three mainstream routes, only Japan succeeded, Europe and The United States more or less failed, especially Europe lost everything.So Europe desperately needs to switch tracks.3. Finally, behind it all:Not in their hand is different from our domestic oil lifeline, Germany and other European countries is actually almost dominance in the field of fuel car, almost every large pillar of European countries have their own brand, Germany Volkswagen, BMW, Benz, audi, porsche and so on, the French Renault, Citroen, Italy don’t say, ferrari’s name just stood there.But if you take a deeper look, the bottom line is: You don’t have the oil.It is true that Europe can gain more oil resources through economic sanctions against Russia and infiltration into places like Ukraine, but the truth is that Russia is one of the world’s three largest countries and they can play crow: flipping the table is not fun.The Middle East is not under its influence, so the most stable source of oil is actually North Africa.So the reality is that Europe, or the European Union, has always been under the shadow of an energy crisis, even more so than China, with its vast and prosperous power system.And the United States?Instead, it is a net exporter of oil.The United States is not short of oil. The shale oil industry, which has been promoted with huge investment, leads the world, and oil can strengthen the hegemony of the dollar.The reason the dollar was decoupled from gold was the petrodollar agreement with Saudi Arabia, and oil was the global hard currency, forcing countries to trade in dollars that could not be converted into gold.So, there is a sense of crisis in many countries in Europe, or in Western Europe as a whole, that they need to fundamentally break free of the constraints of oil.Unlike the likes of deindustrialised Britain, where France, Germany and Italy have their own industries, petroleum energy is better spent creating value in chemicals than in running cars.In addition, coupled with the small European territory, the special environment of the highway, if the development of pure electric new energy is good, in fact, it is a great success.The last word: behind the surge of new energy electric vehicles is the fight for the right to speak in environmental protection.As we all know, Europe is pushing for a carbon tax. At present, We are cooperating, while the United States is against it. In this context, Only by taking the initiative can Europe win the right to speak.So how do you force it?In fact, Europe is accelerating its own transformation of new energy electric vehicles, and then using market access to force the American auto companies to comply.
