Is it the end of the road for the internal combustion engine?
Is it the end of the road for the internal combustion engine? You might think petrol cars will soon be a thing of the past. Technologies are evolving, but it's time for a reality check on what Europe's roads will look like in the years to come.
Most new cars in the EU still run on liquid fuel, and even in 2030 these cars will still be the vast majority of the fleet but we still need to reduce their emissions. Fortunately, the EU has a home-grown solution that is reducing reliance on fossil fuel and can still do even more with the right policy choices: renewable ethanol.
Renewable ethanol can be used now, in existing cars and infrastructure, ensuring no one is left behind in the transition to carbon neutrality.
Renewable ethanol is the EU’s best, most cost-effective option for reducing CO2 emissions today, and tomorrow.
