It is a record message, which the industry Association Auto-Schweiz, the new year has ushered in. Never in a calendar year, so many people had been cars with alternative drives are enrolled, informed the Association of Swiss car importers last Thursday. In fact, the number of new cars was 2018 with 21500 by almost a quarter year-on-year. In total 300'000 new cars sold, the market share increased from 5.6 to 7.2 percent.
is Booming in this country, the electric mobility? The Figures could lead to this conclusion. However, you can be deceiving, as they contain a good part of new vehicles, the objectives for the planned growth in the area of electric cars are not relevant. It is the so-called Hybrids, that is, those models, have two different propulsion systems, usually a gasoline engine with an electric motor of the Drive, however, only supportive.
Association Auto-Schweiz wants that by 2020 the share of electric cars reached 10 percent.
For the E-statistics relevant only to the so-called plug-in vehicles. The fully electrically powered cars and Plug-in Hybrid, loaded, in contrast to hybrids, to the outlet and also longer distances, from 30 to 50 kilometres in pure electric mode can travel. Here, the balance sheet looks less flattering. Last year, around 5400 were enrolled vehicles that are only 400 more than in the previous year. The market share increased correspondingly from 1.6 to 1.8 percent.
industry's stated goal
The Plug-in Hybrid 1.3 per cent of new cars sold accounted for. However, this value refers to the period from January until the end of November, as car-Switzerland the for this type is not yet separately evaluated. According to car-Switzerland spokesman Christoph Wolnik is likely to change in the market share of Plug-in Hybrids, but hardly anything.

the bottom line is the plug made vehicles last year to 3.1 per cent of new cars sold is 0.5 points more than in 2017. For the classification: The Roadmap for electric mobility aims to increase the share of plug-in vehicles in new registrations up to 2022 to be 15 percent, which would correspond to approximately 45000 new cars. So it agreed to the Confederation, the cantons, municipalities and more than 50 organizations and companies in December.
previously the car had been announced to Switzerland, by 2020 a share of 10 per cent want to achieve. To this aim, the Association holds. "This year many new models come out on the market, which is a completely different picture," says spokesman Wolnik. That E-vehicles last year, have hardly found more sales than 2017, says car-Switzerland in the first line with Tesla. The California electric car manufacturer has recently produced negative headlines, including due to problems in the delivery of new vehicles. Prompt the demand for its models in 2018 declined, according to Auto-Schweiz for a few Hundred vehicles. New models from other manufacturers, such as BMW, Nissan or Renault, could make this loss more than betting.
Jürg Grossen, disappointed
"Not surprised, but disappointed" by the new Figures, GLP-chief Jürg Grossen, who has presided over the Swiss Association of E-Mobility. A share of 3.1 per cent was "clear a little". The "tentative" development can be explained to Large with the lack of knowledge of the buying public to the advantages of electric cars, and with the resistance of the "gas lobby, which misses no opportunity for the development of new, bad talk". "However, it is obvious that electric cars in the foreseeable future, be the only possible solution to a clean, renewable personal mobility," says Large.
As a stumbling block Swiss E-Mobility is the lack of charging infrastructure in Parking lots and in garages at home and in the workplace. Great shows, surprised, would have set the auto industry and the Federal government in the E-mobility growth targets, its in the Parliament submitted motions and requests for more charging infrastructure until now, but still would reject. "Here, it needs to rapidly rethink of the auto industry and the authorities." So it was still possible to achieve the objectives.
4x4: Twice as much as in 2008
unlike the E-cars a reality: 4x4 is in a different area of the Boom vehicles are as popular as never before. Their share of new vehicles climbed last year from 47.5 to 49.1 percent – twice as much as in 2008. Climate is political of this record, however, is problematic, to push these cars with a conventional drive, but an above-average amount of CO2. Recognizing also Auto-Switzerland: "the fact That we have not achieved the 50-percent mark, from a CO2 point of view, not so bad."
