Ten billion euros wants to invest Volkswagen in the next seven years together with the Chinese partners area electromobility, as Volkswagen China boss Jochem Heizmann on Thursday (16. Established in November 2017) Entered the car fair in the Sudchinese Guangzhou. Around 40 vehicle models with alternative drives should therefore be produced by 2025 in China – again 25 models more than before.
The market for electric cars developed in the People’s Republic "faster than in other parts of the world," said Heizmann, who on the most important market of the automaker until the year 2020 around 400.Want to sell 000 electric vehicles. By 2025, sales should rise to 1.5 million. As a "right solution", the VW Executive Board described the compromise at the Chinese Government in September 2017 at the planned production rate for E cars. Unlike the German manufacturers, the new rules should therefore not be valid in the coming year, but only from 2019.
After a point system, ten percent of the vehicles produced or imported in China must have a hybrid drive or a pure electric motor. However, as a "final challenge", Heizmann did not see the e-quota, but specifications of the Chinese government for sprit consumption. According to this, the entire vehicle fleet of a manufacturer Kunftig do not consume on average no more than five liters to 100 kilometers. "That’s a difficult requirement."
The joint venture for electric cars planned by Volkswagen with the Chinese manufacturer Anhui Jianghuai Automobile (JAC) is "on a good way". A first joint car is planned for the first year’s global 2018. Thanks to state subsidies when purchasing an electric car, the rich of the center has risen to the large market for electric vehicles. More than half a million cars with alternative drives were already on Chinese straws at the end of 2016. In many million towns of the country there are already strict allocations for internal combustion engines. Also Beijing had recently brought a complete ban on internal combustion engines, but not yet set to a schedule.
In China’s mega-cities often prevail conditions against which the air itself appears at the highest burdened places as in an aerospace. In view of a comparatively tempered local transport, many commuters in China remain only the change to their own cars – despite hours of hours of traffic. To make matters worse, the increased prosperity is reflected in the choice of the car. Also in China SUVs are difficult to ask. At the latest in the medium term, solutions must be made which bring a lower environmental impact and the wish of many consumers under a hat. VW and his partners want to launch ten new SUV in the next two years. Hard to ame that all these models are driven by internal combustion engines.
