AUTO BILD 2/2021 –


Great buying advice: 10 small SUVs. In addition: Golf duel with 245 PS – GTI more economical than GTE hybrid? And: sedan comparison: BMW 320i against Volvo S60 B4.

M.I get a lot of mail. We are printing some of it in a new question and answer section. Thank you that the vast majority of you do not abuse me below the belt for the 10 cents price increase as some think it is necessary. What I’m getting at today is something else. A reader writes to me that he is disappointed with the charging power of his BMW hybrid, which is limited to 3.7 kW, and it takes a very, very long time even with a 22 kW charging station. This is a problem for many plug-ins, but hardly anyone knows that the internal systems limit the charging performance. I am learning: we will emphasize such details even more. So what must AUTO BILD explain to you, who else?

Another reader suspects “fraud”, whose Mercedes hybrid now only drives 23 kilometers (far, I don’t want to say far) electrically at below five degrees, but whose gasoline engine swallows 10 liters / 100 km. According to the WLTP, it’s 2.7 liters. We have always criticized these fabulous consumption values, and experience something similar with an endurance test car. While the WLTP determines quite realistic consumption values ​​for combustion engines, hybrids, to put it casually, use the system in their favor. It’s legal. But I predict: they will not be funded for a very long time.
