Synthetic fuel and hybridisation key to extended ICE lifespan

Electric may be the future, but the ICE can still yield significant emissions gains through synthetic fuels and electrification. By Jack Hunsley

The consensus might be that the long-term future for mobility is electric, but getting to this future will be no easy feat. Electric vehicle (EV) sales may, on paper, be exploding—Statista figures show that in the UK around 230,000 ultra low emission vehicles were licensed by the end of 2019 compared to just 1,481 in 2010—but these sales are still dwarfed by traditional fossil fuel vehicles….
