According to the corresponding arrangements, Beijing began to implement the “Beijing V” standard on February 1, stopping accepting automobile enterprises’declarations of light gasoline vehicles meeting the fourth stage standards, and no longer issuing the environmental protection catalogue of light gasoline vehicles meeting the fourth stage emission standards; at the same time, stopping sales and registration of public transport and sanitation use weights that do not meet the fifth stage emission standards. Model diesel car. Starting from March 1, sales and registration of light gasoline vehicles that do not meet the requirements of Phase 5 will be stopped. Blue environmental protection signs will be issued for vehicles meeting Beijing V emission standards.
For the independent brands whose engine technology and vehicle technology are relatively backward, the new emission standards implemented by Beijing have really sounded the wake-up bell for them. Euro-6 standards have been implemented in Europe, which shows that most European brands have met emission requirements far higher than the fifth stage of the country. Most of the models produced by independent brands are still at the stage of national IV emission standards. They feel strong pressure in terms of competitiveness, Beijing V emission regulations, and even in terms of the national V emission regulations to be implemented soon. Some independent brands in Beijing 4S shop currently have no car to sell, which is the most intuitive performance.
This is the fifth time that Beijing has taken the lead in implementing stricter emission standards for motor vehicles in the whole country since the implementation of “Guoyi” standard. According to Li Kunsheng, Director of Vehicle Emission Management Department of Municipal Environmental Protection Bureau, the “Beijing V” standard is formulated according to Beijing’s need to prevent and control air pollution, which is equivalent to the European No. 5 standard. It is basically consistent with the emission standard currently implemented by the European Union. The purpose is to control the sulfur content of automobile exhaust to the lowest level, and the emission volume of single vehicle is higher than the current “Guo 4” standard. About 40% reduction.
Under the threat of severe haze, Beijing took the lead in implementing the more stringent “Beijing V” local emission standards nationwide from March 1, and all light gasoline vehicles that do not meet the standards will stop selling and registering after March 1. Since then, China’s capital has entered the era of national emission standards in the fifth stage ahead of schedule, and is gradually in line with European emission standards.
Pressure is also the driving force, if the development of independent brands only follow the old road of those leading car companies, it is difficult to hope for them, and it is even more difficult to achieve surpassing. At present, the national policy guidance for the development of new energy vehicles, for independent brands, whether it is to achieve their competitive position, or to meet the requirements of national emission regulations, are worthy of serious consideration. The development of internal combustion engine has been more than one hundred years. The space for its technological upgrading is restricted by energy and environment. It is more and more restricted. Subversive innovation is unlikely to occur. With such strict emission regulations and strong support and guidance from the state, the development of new energy seems to be the most ideal path for self-owned brands to “attack back”.
Is it a share of the strong traditional automobile market or a new hope for future transportation? This is a questionnaire for independent brands after the implementation of Beijing V emission standards.
