消费者期待新能源汽车电池技术改进

Consumers eager for battery technology advancement

君迪日前发布的2018中国消费者新能源汽车购买意向调查显示,在节能环保理念的普及和一系列优惠政策的推波助澜下,中国消费者对新能源汽车的热情得到了彻底释放;中国消费者对新能源汽车的热情高,期待也高,对电池技术的改进尤为期待。

Propelled by growing public concerns about the environment and thanks to incentive policies, the enthusiasm among consumers in China for new-energy vehicles has been steadily increasing, with consumers also expecting breakthroughs in battery technology, according to a recent J.D. Power survey on Chinese consumers' purchase intentions regarding new-energy vehicles.

该调查显示,“完全同意”及“部分同意”新能源汽车将取代传统燃油车的受访者达86%,超过95%的受访者在下一次购买新车时“一定愿意”和“可能愿意”选择新能源汽车。

The survey shows that 86% of consumers say they “completely agreeor “partially agreethat new-energy vehicles (NEVs) will replace internal combustion engine cars, and 95% say they are “very willing” or “slightly willing” to choose an NEV for their next vehicle purchase.

环保技术/环保理念(76%)和省油(63%)是中国消费者选择新能源汽车的重要原因,但国家补贴(61%)和免费牌照(40%)的政策效应不容小觑,两者的重要性分列第三和第四。

Environmentally friendly (76%) and fuel economy (63%) are the most often cited reasons for purchasing an NEV, while government incentives, such as subsidies (61%) and free license plates (40%), are also important.

调查发现,在没有免费牌照和补贴的情况下,消费者购买新能源汽车的意愿大幅降低,“可能不愿意”和“一定不愿意”购买的受访者分别升至29%和 41%。

If there were no subsidies, 29% of consumers indicate they would not select an NEV and 41% would not select an NEV if there were no free license plates.

调查还发现,消费者对续航里程、电池充电时长等技术指标的提升期望尤高。

The survey finds that consumers in China expect a shorter charging time and a longer driving range.

续航里程方面,七成以上消费者(77%)希望续航里程在200公里以上,其中希望续航里程达到300公里以上的消费者比例为38%。

More than three-fourths (77%) of consumers prefer new- energy vehicles with a driving range on a full charge of more than 200 kilometers, while 38% prefer a range of more than 300 kilometers.

电池充电时长方面,三成受访者希望6小时内完成一次慢充,另有12%受访者希望以更换电池的方式代替充电,数分钟内完成换电。

About one-third (30%) indicate they prefer a charging time of less than 6 hours and 12% prefer battery changing, which takes only a few minutes.

另有部分消费者对电池的使用和保养表现出了一定顾虑,如“废旧电池回收/循环利用制度不完善可能导致环境污染”(27%)、 “不清楚电池的正确使用和保养方法”(22%)、“不清楚如何处理废旧电池”(21%)。

Specific to battery use, consumers also have other concerns, such as the lack of a battery recycle system, which may result in pollution (27%); lack of clarity about the usage and maintenance of battery (22%); and uncertainty about how to dispose of a worn-out battery (21%).

君迪汽车产品事业部总经理蔡明表示:“电池技术是新能源汽车制造面临的最严峻挑战之一。消费者对新能源汽车的高期待,将倒逼新能源汽车企业加大研发力度,实现关键技术的突破和改进,为消费者提供更长的续航里程、更舒适的乘驾体验以及更多样化的选择。”

“Battery technology has become one of the most formidable challenges that manufacturers must address. Consumers' high expectations for new-energy vehicles, especially battery technology, will likely drive manufacturers to enhance research and development efforts for technology advancement and breakthroughs,” said Jeff Cai, General Manager of Auto Products Practice at J.D. Power China.

Amadeus制定新分销能力-X计划

Amadeus creates NDC-X program

如今,游客越来越希望旅游品牌能够了解他们的需求并提供相应的服务。为顺应这一趋势,旅游业正大力推行个性化服务,以获得更多业务和创造更高收入。

The travel industry is moving towards increased personalization, as merchandizing techniques drive new revenues and business opportunities, and as travelers expect brands to know them and adapt offers accordingly.

正是在这种背景下,Amadeus近日宣布制定专门计划,以推动新分销能力(NDC)产业化,带动所有旅游市场参与者取得成功。

It is against this backdrop that Amadeus announces the creation of a dedicated program to drive the industrialization of NDC and ensure its success for all travel players.

“新分销能力” 是一项基于XML的数据传输标准,能够为旅游业带来广阔的发展前景,支持从航空公司到旅行社所有旅游公司提升旅游分销和营销能力。

New Distribution Capability (NDC), created by IATA, is an XML-based data transmission standard that holds huge promise for the travel industry, and will enable travel companies – from airlines to travel agencies – to evolve travel distribution and merchandizing.

Gianni Pisanello将担任全新NDC-X计划的副总裁。他表示:“我们的标准开发和行业准备工作已经到了一个关键时刻。

Gianni Pisanello will lead the new NDC-X program. “We are at a critical moment in terms of the development of the standard, and the readiness of the industry.” He says.

NDC标准的成功取决于两个因素,即基本框架和实施方式。我们还要确保它能够响应旅游服务公司的需求,具备推动投资的良好经济性。”

“For NDC to truly take off, we need to create a real standard not only for the protocol itself, but also for how it’s implemented. We also need to ensure that it responds to travel seller requirements, and that it has the right economics to drive investment. ”

NDC-X计划将调动Amadeus公司内所有专家,集思广益,重点研究该标准的实践用例,采用测试和学习方法提升旅游业的服务能力。

With this in mind the NDC-X program will bring together experts from across Amadeus’ business, and will focus on practical use cases of the standard, adopting a test and learn approach to deliver improved capabilities for the industry.
