Volkswagen, which declared a halt to diesel sales.Why do you want to keep selling in Korea?


Volkswagen Korea President Stefan Krapp diagnosed that internal combustion engines will dominate the market for more than 10 years. Although it is true that the supply of eco-friendly vehicles such as electric vehicles will increase, he argues that the dominance of internal combustion locomotives will continue for a long time.

“Electric cars are growing fast, but many consumers are still focusing on internal combustion engines,” Krapp told Volkswagen Media Day on Tuesday. “In the medium term, internal combustion engines will play a dominant role in the next 10-15 years or more.” “This trend should not be overlooked,” he added. 토토사이트

Krapp’s remarks are interpreted as being conscious of the sale of the new Tiguan, which was released in Korea. The new Tiguan line-up has been established with only diesel cars, which are considered semi-friendly vehicles in the domestic market without gasoline or plug-in hybrids.

“The EA288 Evo engine boasts the best performance among existing Volkswagen engines by reducing nitrogen oxide emissions by 80% compared to the previous ones. Starting with the new Tiguan, we will fill the diesel lineup that will be sold in the Korean market with EA288 Evo engine alone.”

Nevertheless, the EA288 Evo diesel engine is still considered semi-friendly in that it emits a large number of harmful gases composed of ultrafine particles.

He also said, “The new Tiguan will be a new standard in the imported car market, and it will be a premium that everyone can enjoy,” confident sales performance. Last year, Tiguan sold 11,129 units annually in Korea.

Volkswagen Korea plans to launch its pure electric vehicle ID.4 in Korea in the first half of 2022 and lead the electric vehicle market, but it still maintains its affection for diesel.

Meanwhile, the German Volkswagen brand has declared that it will phase out sales of internal combustion engine vehicles by 2035. “The suspension of internal combustion locomotive sales (after 2035) is based on the European market, and it can be applied differently in other countries, including Korea,” Krapp said. His calculation is that he will still compete with semi-friendly diesel cars in the Korean market.
