The scandal of the emissions and subsequent Dieselgate of the Volkswagen Group is changing the landscape of the automotive world. If until a couple of years almost all brands were betting on to create and improve their mechanical diesel, now it seems to have become contrary to them. The first signature that has been said that eliminate the diesel engines of its range is the Swedish Volvo, but it seems that there will be more followers.
Porsche is the signature premium and sporty (in addition to Audi, Bentley and Lamborghini) of the Volkswagen Group. The signing of Stuttgart is being investigated by the prosecutor’s office of his hometown for the misleading advertising related Dieselgate. Obviously, this research is derived from the you have open, its matrix also for the Dieselgate, but now, yes that could have more serious problems.
For this reason, and in the wake of the news that threw the CEO of the firm Oliver Blume made a few days ago, we have known that the firm is thinking to abandon the sale of its diesel engines. The news of which I speak refers to the electrification of the range Porsche in a matter of half a decade. According to Blume the German house is ready to do so before any of your rivals, since you already have the necessary technological basis for this.
Porsche, to carry out this strategy for the future, is making strong investments in the areas of hybridization and electrification. The Mission And will be the first product to be born of a thousand million euros, which has put on the table to reshape the plant of Stuttgart. The second model all-electric, the German firm will be the SUV Macan, but as long as it hits the market, they are doing great advances with hybrid models as the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid.
remains to Be seen if the strategy, initiated by Volvo, is well seen by the rest of the marks, and they are encouraged to to abandon the mechanical diesel definitely. The Volkswagen Group needs to improve its image and Porsche has realized that he has to break away as soon as possible of the rest of brands his group. Oliver Blume, Porsche CEO, wants by the end of this decade is the marked route to leave behind the diesel engines, but is also convinced that in the next 20 years we will see Porsche with combustion engines.
Will see how to develop these plans and up to where will you send the internal synergies of the Volkswagen Group to develop their electric models.
