Daimler, dynaCERT, Tesla, Volkswagen - Electromobility threatens setback

  • Mobility

The world stands still. Only a few vehicles are still rolling on the roads. Trucks supply the supermarkets with food and those who can, take their own car for shopping or for the way to work to avoid the risk of public transport becoming infected. However, most people currently spend most of their time at their home or home office, as it is now called. The exciting question these days is: when can the old normality finally start again? But there is also enormous uncertainty about the personal economic situation. Will your company or your employer manage to survive? The need to buy a new car in such a situation should be close to zero.

Government has new priorities

The price of petrol and diesel is at a level we have not seen for a long time. Bargain hunters will probably itch to fill up their tanks again at every price board. But full is full, because the fuel consumption is currently minimal. Business is closed and social contacts should be avoided, so where should the journey go?

Low fuel costs also do not motivate the potential buyer groups of an electric car to change over now. On the contrary. In uncertain times people cut back on spending and investment. The energy transition in mobility will probably be put on hold for the time being. The government must now ensure the survival of the entire economy, leaving no resources or capacities for subsidized experiments.

Controversial technology without added value

In recent years, German car manufacturers have increasingly become the plaything of politics. Environmental regulations that were not in line with customer requirements confronted the engineers with enormous challenges. The forced changes in mobility made only slow progress despite subsidies with taxpayers' money.

Battery cars with morally questionable cobalt and lithium from developing countries are just as unhelpful for sales as the fact that only a portion of the charging current comes from renewable energies. The environmental friendliness of battery cars is therefore controversial.

Tesla in the fight for survival

As a manufacturer of battery cars, Tesla is now heading for difficult times, as sales of this type of vehicle will be low in the near future. Whether the latest capital injection of two billion USD will be enough to survive remains to be seen.

Daimler and Volkswagen have also backed electric mobility, but they can still run on internal combustion engines - without state subsidies. Either way, the coming weeks will be a test of patience for the carmakers, because the longer the Corona Crisis and its restrictions continue, the greater the problems for the industry will be.

dynaCERT makes diesel green

The company dynaCERT has developed a hydrogen technology that can be retrofitted to diesel engines. The fuel consumption is reduced by up to 20% and the emission of pollutants is significantly lowered. A reduction of up to 88% in NOx has been measured. Emissions of particulate matter were reduced by up to 55% and of CO2 by up to 10%.

The advantage of dynaCERT is that the retrofit market for used vehicles is many times larger than for new vehicles. For this reason, the Corona Crisis is not expected to have a lasting negative impact on the company. Customers who want to achieve a competitive advantage by saving fuel and at the same time protect the environment can achieve this with their existing diesel vehicle and the HydraGEN device from dynaCERT.


Conflict of interest & risk note

In accordance with §34b WpHG we would like to point out that Apaton Finance GmbH as well as partners, authors or employees of Apaton Finance GmbH may hold shares in the aforementioned companies and that there may therefore be a conflict of interest. Further details can be found in our Conflict of Interest & Risk Disclosure.

BMW, Daimler, Volkswagen and dynaCERT - the cleanest diesel ever

  • Mobility

In a recent vehicle test, experts examined the BMW 520d, Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 and VW Golf 2.0 TDI models in city traffic, on country roads and autobahns. The magazine 'Auto, Motor und Sport' and the British testing specialist Emissions Analytics have tested the emission of nitrogen oxide (NOx) in road traffic under real conditions and the results are surprisingly good. The advantages of electric mobility are fading.

Daimler, dynaCERT, Tesla - who has the best Mobility shares?

  • Mobility

The Corona Crisis is omnipresent. The discussions about CO2 emissions and climate targets have given way to the pandemic. The streets are empty and the population stays at home. People around the globe are taking a break - or rather, they are being asked to take a forced break and avoid social contact. For the economy, the state of deceleration and standstill is a maximum stress test. Conveyors stand still. Supplies are stuck. The finished products cannot find a customer and salaries must continue to be paid. The German government wants to help quickly and offers support programs for salaries. The state basically distributes tax money that has to be earned sooner or later.

BMW, Daimler, Tesla - who buys whom and why does everything turn out differently?

  • Mobility

The entrepreneur Elon Musk has had numerous existential near-death experiences with his battery car manufacturer Tesla since its foundation. Debts, postponements and quality issues were among the reasons why the US company was often closer to the end than to a breakthrough in the past. But somehow Musk always managed to raise money and emotionally pull the investors along. At BMW and Daimler, the management team is much more relaxed - still.
