The hottest compact SUV is growing strongly in Eur

  • Detail

Compact SUVs are growing strongly in Europe, and hybrid electric vehicles are temporarily the mainstream of electrification. Electrified models at the level of

are an important source of manufacturers' profits and sales, and also a key link in the electrification transformation. All players who hope to seize the opportunities in the European market will continue to increase in the future

automotive data and Market Research Institute, but MC automotive recently released a set of data, saying that the compact SUV market in Europe will have a good momentum in the next few years, and the sales volume in 2020 will be the same as that of last year, which is more than 2 million, and the growth rate will temporarily slow down

however, the agency predicts that after 2020, the market at this level will develop rapidly from 2021, and may expand to 2.4 million vehicles by 2021, and is expected to achieve an annual sales of 2.8 million vehicles by 2025

lmc believes that more automobile manufacturers will replace or upgrade relevant models in the next few years, and will continue to carry out comprehensive and multi-level energy-saving technological transformation from diesel vehicles to electrification. As Nissan Qijun, Ford Yihu, Peugeot 3008 and other models continue to sell well in the European market, the market strength performance of this segment is 30% higher than that of traditional materials, which has become the lifeblood of sales of many car enterprises

jato dynamics' data shows that the strong sales volume has led the compact SUV to become the fourth segment market in Europe, accounting for 13% of the total new car sales, and the annual sales volume once exceeded the 2million mark. Since 2014, the sales volume of this segment has almost doubled

thanks to the 4% growth, Volkswagen Tiguan surpassed Nissan Qijun this year and became the most popular compact model in Europe, while Peugeot 3008 ranked third

The reason why LMC made the forecast of the slowdown of sales in this segment in 2020 is partly because Nissan Qijun will usher in a new version this year, and Ford Yihu is also in the critical period of the replacement of the old and the new

therefore, the agency believes that the sales volume of compact SUVs in 2020 will be close to 2.2 million in 2019. 1. Regularly review whether there is oil leakage at the main engine and oil source. At the same time, the sales volume of Hyundai Tucson and Kia lion race may continue to decline before the launch of new models in 2021

for automobile manufacturers, the challenge of compact SUVs also comes from the electrification transformation to a large extent. They must quickly get rid of the demand for diesel vehicles and launch more products that comply with Europe's stringent emission regulations and consumer preferences. Although the market share of diesel models of compact SUVs has gradually declined, from 73% in 2015 to 44% in 2018

in 2019, the main sales force of this level is the hybrid electric vehicle. Thanks to this, Toyota RAV4 sales in Europe increased by 35% last year

Japanese automakers have led the European market to get rid of the trend of diesel models by embracing hybrid power. Last year, the new Toyota RAV4 once surpassed Opel/Vauxhall's grandland X and ranked among the top ten in this level, while hybrid models accounted for nearly 70% of RAV4 sales

rival Honda has also cut its diesel version in Europe to support its new CR-V hybrid model, but the real market influence and ranking changes will not be prominent until 2020. Nissan also plans to abandon the diesel model of Qijun and replace it with E-power series hybrid system

however, other automakers are trying to bypass hybrids in the compact SUV sector and focus instead on plug-in hybrid technology. Compared with the former, plug-in hybrid models can significantly reduce carbon dioxide emissions, but due to the factors of core components such as batteries, they also push up the end market price

PSA Group brands such as Peugeot Citroen, DS and Opel/Vauxhall have successively launched plug-in hybrid compact SUVs, reducing the average carbon dioxide emissions of European models to 29 grams per kilometer

Ford will also launch the wing tiger with plug-in hybrid technology, and according to the latest Japanese media reports, Nissan will launch a plug-in hybrid Qijun using Mitsubishi technology, an alliance partner

the automaker that recently announced the launch of plug-in hybrid models in this segment is Toyota. The company will launch a version of RAV4 in the second half of this year. According to the official caliber, the range is 65 kilometers

it is worth mentioning that up to now, Volkswagen has not launched the plug-in hybrid version of Tiguan in Europe, but it is expected to launch it in the future. The brand has sold the plug-in hybrid version of Tiguan L in China. If the plug-in hybrid will become the mainstream of the segment market in the future, they will also speed up the listing of European models

Fiat is the only mass-produced brand in the European market that lacks relevant models at the same time, but it is expected that this situation will change after the merger with PSA. Industry analysts believe that this level of electrified models is an important source of manufacturers' profits and sales, and all players who hope to seize the opportunities in the European market will continue to increase in the future
