More environmentally friendly cars is by all accounts high in a large number of automobile manufacturers new year's resolutions for 2019. The same desire has many politicians, businesses and, not least, buyers, but even if it immediately may sound like a good starting point for all parties, then there is a but.
the Demand is allegedly so great that the car manufacturers have difficulty to follow. It means that buyers must wait ever-longer on the new electric and hybrid models in Denmark, as well as the rest of the world. It writes the DR.
It has long been known that automotive manufacturers in, for example, Norway has hard time to satiate the hunger for electrical cars, as a large number of politically motivated incentives have awakened. According to the DR stands to 40,000 norwegians currently on a waiting list for an electric car, but even if the demand is not near as big in Denmark, so spill it anyway on the Danish market.
the DR has spoken with Volvo and Kia, who either have or have had a longer waiting list of models with hybrid technology in Denmark. At Kia will send you soon the electric car e-Niro on the street, and the importer expects that it also may be a car, Danish buyers have to wait longer.
At Volvo points out at the same time, it takes time to retool the factories to produce the new technologies. Part of the reason for the long wait is, in other words, to samlebåndene not yet running at full speed.
According to Ole Kveiborg, there is elbilekspert and senior consultant at the consultancy firm COWI, the demand will very likely act as an incentive to do something at precisely this bottleneck.
- It is a problem, we will see a piece forward in time. But in line with the growing demand, manufacturers will build more electric cars, says Ole Kveiborg to DR.
senior Consultant Ole Kveiborg suggest that manufacturers may want to address the needs of the countries, where the waiting lists are long, when the new cars should be sent out on the roads. If this happens, it increase the waiting time further at home, where the car dealers according to DR, last year sold 4868 electric and hybrid cars.
For comparison, in Norway sold more than 58,000 cars of the type, which the norwegians call 'nuludslipsbiler' in 2018. Here one has from the political side chose to exempt electric cars from registration tax and make it free to park in public places and even in some places thought of free power.
Although last year sold fewer cars in Norway than in Denmark, have the incentives made the country one of the world's biggest markets for electric cars. And as well Ole Kveiborg Danish electric Car Alliance calls for the Danish initiatives, which can send a signal to car manufacturers that we are going in the same direction.
- We must offer the same conditions. It could be a green firmabilsbeskatning. It has really moved on sales. We want politicians to introduce in Denmark, says Lærke Surfaces, there is branchechef in the Danish Electric vehicle Alliance, to DR.
