BERYLLS STATEMENTS

Here you can find the latest statements from our partners and experts on current technical, economic and political issues that are influencing the automotive world.
OCTOBER

REGULATION OF CO2-EMISSIONS.

Dr Jan Burgard, managing partner at Berylls Strategy Advisors: “There is a lot suggesting that the 2030 CO2targets announced by the EU environment ministers will accelerate the demise of the internal combustion engine. Electric cars appear to be the panacea and reduce emissions by 35 %. After all, electric vehicles do not emit any carbon dioxide while driving – at least that is a widely held opinion. However, from well to wheel, they do not really improve the situation.
After all, electricity generation – including for electric cars – is still strongly dependent on fossil fuels in many EU countries. The climate does not care whether carbon dioxide comes from the exhaust pipe or whether it is released when lignite is burned to generate electricity or in energy-intensive battery production. I miss a technology-agnostic discussion of available solutions, which also includes the potential of the currently demonized diesel engine. We will need it in order to achieve the EU’s climate targets.”

UBER IS STILL NOT OUT OF THE WOODS, DESPITE STRONG GROWTH AND UPWARDS EARNINGS.

Dr. Matthias Kempf, Partner at Berylls Strategy Advisors: “Uber is still writing high losses, but it shows that these are shrinking despite the still extreme growth in turnover. Uber intends to go public in the second half of 2019, so great attention is being paid to posting a black zero or even an operating profit in the next two to three quarters. At the same time, its growth will slow down somewhat, but it will take away a larger share of passenger fees from chauffeurs and capitalise on its market power in this way.
With the investments in the complementary mobility fields of rental two-wheelers and delivery services as well as the focus on autonomous driving, I occupy the right or absolutely necessary fields, whereby I consider the hype about air taxis to be excessive. The great adversary DiDi in China follows the same pattern. For Europe I see a showdown of the two giants.”

SALES AND LICENSING RESTRICTIONS FOR VEHICLES WITH INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES.

Andreas Radics, managing partner at Berylls Strategy Advisors: “If the worldwide sales bans or restrictions on the operation of vehicles with combustion engines that have been announced already apply today, 50 percent of the current global sales volume would be affected.
All vehicle manufacturers will have to work flat out on an intelligent drive mix in order to prepare for this sharp drop in sales.”
SEPTEMBER

DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION OF SUPPLIERS.

Peter Eltze, expert for digital corporate transformation at Berylls Strategy Advisors: “Economic support is good and right, but it can only be an impulse for digital transformation. The money must fall on fertile ground in the companies, but this is not available from many suppliers. The promotion only promises success if the suppliers find a balance between optimizing existing business areas and developing new business ideas at the same time.
In many cases, they first have to develop a suitable strategic concept. The Berylls culture study shows how difficult this is for many companies. It shows that many suppliers currently do not have the organizational skills and abilities for digital transformation. The funding should therefore also serve to build up missing job profiles, such as those of the data analyst.”

VEHICLE SALES 2017: EVERY SECOND E-CAR WITH GB/T STANDARD.

Andreas Radics, managing partner at Berylls Strategy Advisors: “Once again European OEMs and suppliers from Asia seem to be threatened with trouble. In the current case, the Charging Interface Initiative (CharIN) is affected, in which almost all German car manufacturers, flanked by European companies in the automotive and energy industries, have organized themselves. Their aim is to create a globally uniform fast-charging standard for electric cars based on the CCS connector and the associated charging protocols.
So far with some success, because in Europe and the USA the CCS chargers are now dominant in the market. The new Plug & Charge service at CCS is intended to ensure even greater acceptance from next spring and will make the cumbersome handling of different loading cards superfluous. China and Japan, currently on the market with different charging systems (GB/T and CHAdeMO), are nevertheless going their own way and now intend to synchronize their development efforts to achieve a fast charging standard for e-cars.”
