It's the end of the road for petrol and diesel.
It's no secret the world is on a mission to decrease its carbon emissions. The motor industry is already seeing the start of a ‘green revolution’, with the sale of electric vehicles (EV’s) on the rise and government legislation curbing the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles from 2030.
With so much recent focus on decarbonising the motor industry, it might surprise you to learn Germany has opposed a landmark European law that all new cars sold from 2035 must have zero CO2 emissions.
So why the sudden U-turn?
No, it’s not because manufacturers want to keep petrol and diesel in play – in the race to carbon neutral what we’re seeing is a shift in gears, not a standstill. While many manufacturers are placing their bets on the electric vehicle (EV), there’s an alternative at play in the form of lesser known e-fuels.
