Registration requirements for cars
For our mobility to remain affordable, plug-in hybrid and electric cars must reduce the demand for oil as quickly as possible and become cheaper through mass production.
There are different market types. The oil price rises with more demand. But the oil price also rises if the offer decreases, this is typical for a limited market. Not only can this place a heavy burden on individual households, it can also bring entire economies into the economic death zone.
The technical components of a conventional car are stable in price. The components that are different in an electric car than in a conventional car have the characteristics of an emerging market: With every doubling of the demand the price decreases by 20 percent.
Let us assume a car costs 20,000 EUR in the conventional version and 40,000 EUR as an electric car. Components worth 10,000 EUR are the same for both versions. The other components cost EUR 10,000 for a conventional car and EUR 30,000 for an electric car. The following table shows the expected price development. WM is in the table for today's world market for electric cars.
Can you believe it? Think what a mobile phone, notebook, colour TV with 1 m screen or photovoltaic cost 20 years ago.
What happens to lazy students? The long-term unemployed of tomorrow. What will become of a car industry that is hostile to innovation? In Detroit there was once a flourishing innovation-hostile automotive industry. We must therefore push the car industry to new heights.
