heavy truck enterprises get a breather after the implementation of the fourth national standard

Guide: not long ago, the Ministry of environmental protection issued the announcement on the implementation of the fourth phase of the national vehicle compression ignition engine and vehicle pollutant emission standards. The corresponding load should be slowly applied at a certain speed during the experiment. The announcement stipulates that from July 1st, 2013, all compression ignition engines (mainly diesel engines) and gasoline engines for vehicles produced, imported, sold and registered
not long ago, the Ministry of environmental protection issued the announcement on the implementation of the fourth phase of the national vehicle compression ignition engine and vehicle pollutant emission standards. The announcement stipulates that from July 1st, 2013, all compression ignition engines (mainly diesel engines) and vehicles produced, imported, sold and registered for vehicles must meet the fourth national standard. This means that the official implementation of the fourth national standard originally scheduled for January 1, 2012 has been postponed. This is also the second time that the Ministry of environmental protection has postponed the implementation of the national four standards for heavy-duty diesel vehicles. Previously, the implementation standards of diesel countries 1 to 3 have also been repeatedly postponed. Most industry insiders have long expected the delay in the implementation of the fourth diesel engine. For the industry, the postponement of the implementation of the four new standards is of great significance
"in 2011, the situation of the truck market is not good. If the national four new standards are implemented again, it will undoubtedly bring greater market pressure to truck manufacturers. The postponement of the implementation date of the national four standards can give truck enterprises a chance to take advantage of the waste foam granulator." Analyst Yuchen believes that the delay in implementation is undoubtedly a major positive for heavy truck enterprises
"the sales volume of heavy trucks is certainly difficult to reach the 850000 vehicles previously predicted by insiders. 70% or 80% of the ultimate stress is selected as the initial stress." Said a truck business person who declined to be named
shaoguoqiang, President of Shaanxi Automobile Research Institute and chief engineer of Shaanxi heavy truck sales company, told that at present, the price of domestic heavy truck products is mainly below 300000 yuan, and the price of the national fourth heavy truck is generally 20000-30000 yuan higher than that of the national third heavy truck currently sold on the market. "The increase of nearly 10% is certainly unacceptable to truck drivers."
however, there are also truck enterprises that do not buy the delay in the implementation of the national four standards for oil products
"if the national four products can achieve mass production in the future, this increase is not too high for domestic medium and high-end heavy truck enterprises." Wu Yuejun, general manager of Foton Auman heavy truck brand, believes that Foton has been ready for the product research and development of Euro 4 and Euro 5 as early as many years ago. The unclear policy makes enterprises hesitate in product research and development
"there are policies at the top and Countermeasures at the bottom". Because the technology of some non mainstream manufacturers of heavy truck enterprises cannot meet the national fourth standard, the last EGR incident is likely to repeat the mistakes. "It is likely to lead to the prevalence of fake country 4. In addition, licensing in other places will also be popular, and commercial vehicles that do not meet the country 4 standard will be transported to remote places other than those where the country 4 standard has not been implemented for licensing, and then used in areas where the country 4 standard has been implemented." Industry insiders said that the leap forward from national three to national four standards will not only flood the market with fake goods, but also have a certain impact on independent brand heavy truck enterprises. Although domestic heavy truck enterprises have their own national four products, few of them really master the core technology. Therefore, on the road to national four, some brands may fall behind due to technical bottlenecks
however, domestic truck enterprises are far from being affected. Foreign heavy truck enterprises have a lot of complaints about delaying the implementation of the new standard. In 2011, Navistar heavy truck, which has been calling for national policies to liberalize the total length of trucks, has also been hoping to put into production more high-end products in China, and has sought cooperation with JAC, hoping to introduce the most advanced technology from the United States and directly sell products of the fourth or even the fifth country. "But judging from the current situation, this plan still needs to be considered in the long run." Analysts said
truck dealers also triggered heated discussion
"once implemented, dealers in first tier cities will be injured." A heavy truck dealer in Henan said that the delay had little impact on truck dealers in economically underdeveloped areas. "Because Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and other first tier cities have stronger supervision and stricter management. Now our small places are still selling country II cars. Especially used cars are selling very well."
a heavy truck dealer in Beijing welcomed the delay in the implementation of the fourth national standard. He said that China's heavy truck market was very depressed in 2011. If all kinds of steel trade service providers were activated with "partners", and the national four new standards were implemented from this year, the life of dealers would be more difficult. "After all, the most direct impact of the implementation of the fourth diesel engine is the rise in vehicle costs."
it is reported that due to the addition of a set of tail gas post-treatment system, the upgrading of emission standards will first bring about an increase in costs. The general increase in customer purchase costs of 20000-30000 yuan, which is equivalent to 10% of the truck price. "In today's meager profits, truck companies will definitely let consumers pay." The dealer in Henan believes that considering the process and cost of refined oil products, the price of refined oil products will also rise significantly after the implementation of the national fourth oil, "it is predicted that the price per liter will be about one yuan higher than the original price."
"now the living environment of truck drivers is not optimistic. With the rise of vehicle prices and oil prices, the living environment of truck drivers will be on the verge of collapse." A truck driver said with concern that if the national fourth emission standard is implemented now, it will lead to a series of chain reactions: rising vehicle prices, rising oil prices, shrinking sales, etc. will seriously hit the heavy truck market, and even affect the national economy and people's livelihood, such as rising prices, thus inducing a domino like chain reaction
