German premium manufacturers have sold more cars again. Strong sales in China and catch-up results have brought BMW, Audi, and Daimler rising deliveries and sales in the third quarter. However, the Mercedes brand received tailwind mainly from the domestic market. Overall, sales climbed 3.9% to 613,770 vehicles in the last three months. But, nine-month sales are still down almost 10% as a result of the First Half 2020 slump in unit sales due to the corona-related lockdown. Nevertheless, the three big players are leaving the deep corona hole behind for the time being, as the figures published on Wednesday and Tuesday show. Overall, BMW fared best, with the Munich-based company and its subsidiary Mini, achieving sales of 675,680 cars between July and September - an increase of 8.6% over the same period last year. The main driver was a strong business in Asia. BMW also achieved a 7.1% increase in Europe. The USA and North America, on the other hand, remained clearly in the red. It is good to hear that the bottom is likely to be in our rearview mirror!

    NEL ASA - If not Nikola, then in the Netherlands

    The Norwegian hydrogen company NEL ASA recently had to struggle with the loss of the Nikola orders, and now they are expanding in the Netherlands. A subsidiary of NEL has received a new order from the Danish hydrogen company Everfuel. According to the press release, the charge is for a hydrogen filling station for filling emission-free hydrogen buses in the Netherlands.

    The order is the second NEL has received from Everfuel, which is primarily committed to equipping heavy commercial vehicles, buses, and passenger cars with the new electrolysis technology. The order is worth around EUR 1.6 million to NEL, and an operation date is set for the end of 2021. The topic of hydrogen is taking on more and more shape in local transport lines.

    TESLA - Acquisitions in Germany secure local jobs

    After the purchase of the Grohmann company in the Eifel in 2016, the Californian e-shooting star Tesla is interested in a second Rhineland-Palatinate company. The Federal Cartel Office has now been notified of the acquisition of control of the Neuwied-based automotive supplier ATW, as confirmed by the responsible authorities in Bonn on Thursday. ATW and Grohmann did not comment on this, and Tesla did not respond to an inquiry for the time being, but several media have already reported on it.

    Assembly & Test Europe GmbH (ATW) is owned by the Canadian manufacturer, Automation Tooling Systems (ATS). Surprisingly, one month ago, the Canadian Company announced the closure of its site in Rhineland-Palatinate. Tech-billionaire Elon Musk, who is also building a vast factory in Grünheide near Berlin, would thus save jobs again, this time at the Neuwieder automotive supplier, ATW. Sometimes you can call Elon a dreamer, but the rescue of the Old German Economy seems to be close to his heart. We say thank you!

    dynaCERT - Canadian high-tech forge remains in vogue

    dynaCERT takes small steps, but you float along on the hydrogen wave. Imagine that local authorities have the task of making existing traffic more environmentally friendly through the wish of the population. The situation needs to be exact when it comes to new purchases where every chamberlain can set limits and issue permits according to the latest requirements. For old vehicles, the legal side is more challenging. According to the old law, operating licenses issued in the previous few years cannot be revoked so easily.

    Nevertheless, older bus and logistics fleets can be put under a time constraint by law to reduce CO2 emissions by a certain percentage. Whoever is faster receives a tax cleanliness bonus, whoever takes longer pays more indirectly. Since local authorities have been facing chronic budget shortages for years, many older fleets, for example, the yellow school buses or urban public transport, will presumably be able to extend their service life by upgrading accordingly.

    Here is where dynaCERT comes into play. The company's HydraGEN (TM), Carbon Emission Reduction Technology, costs an affordable price to install and results in fuel savings of up to 19%. For authorities, which cannot bring themselves to large new investments, these hydrogen-based additional devices are in attainable proximity. After all, what is essential for public opinion to be successful? Raise the flag during the Greta demonstration on Fridays and announce loudly: "We do something, and we do it with dynaCERT - a small investment, but a big effect for the environment!" - this is how politics works. The technology of dynaCERT remains thus en vogue. The share is for speculative investors at present to have for approx. CAD 0.63.

    Attention: DAX dividends! Car stocks pay out: Mercedes-Benz, MS Industrie, VW and BMW

    • Technology
    • hightech
    • Automotive
    • Electromobility

    The DAX 40 index has gone into reverse gear in recent weeks. In addition to the high-tech and artificial intelligence sectors, the multi-month bull market also included defense stocks in the interim phase. There is no real reason to celebrate among automotive stocks, as an expected decline in GDP also means reduced household budgets. This translates to fewer new vehicle sales, with many electric vehicles produced in bulk occupying important showroom space from dealers for months. The pain is increasing, and those looking to sell vehicles find themselves in ruinous discount battles with cheap Chinese imports. However, there appears to be a glimmer of hope on the horizon: interest rate cuts! They are expected in the second half of the year. We analyze the current situation.

    Daimler Truck, dynaCERT, Apple shares - Who are the game changers in the market?

    • Hydrogen
    • greenhydrogen
    • Automotive

    As the demand for consumer goods continues to grow, the number of diesel trucks on the roads is also increasing. Just 1.5 years after laying the foundation stone, Daimler Truck is clearly focusing on commercial vehicles powered by battery and fuel cell technology at its site in Stuttgart-Feuerbach. Until then, bridging technologies will continue to expand. The Canadian company dynaCERT has developed a pioneering method to reduce the environmental impact of diesel trucks and HGVs. With this innovative technology, hydrogen is fed directly into the engines, resulting in significantly lower harmful emissions such as CO₂ and nitrogen oxides. This technology has already been tested worldwide and is considered a decisive step in the fight against climate change in the transportation sector. The technology can also be used in other transportation sectors, such as shipping or mining. And when it comes to the automotive industry, Apple must recognize that not everything the Cupertino-based company touches turns to gold...

    Globex Mining, Rheinmetall, Fisker - Correction nearing its end

    The German economy is shrinking, and there is no sign of an end to the downward spiral in the current year. Only the defense industry, which was dubbed socially harmful before the Ukraine conflict, is acting as a growth engine, with shares in the sector rushing from one high to the next. The growing and likely continuing demand for defense goods is increasing the need for critical metals. After a prolonged correction, copper, lithium, and others may now have completed their bottoming out.
