End of combustion in 2035: what future for E85, LPG, and synthetic gasoline?

After 2035, will alternative fuels such as E85 bioethanol disappear at the same time as new thermal cars?

The information, released in mid-June, is intended to be unequivocal: the thermal cars new cars will be banned from sale in Europe from 2035. “Thermal”: a very (too?) broad spectrum. In fact, hybrid cars are also affected by this ban, and plug-in hybrid, whatever the size of their engines. Nor does the text adopted by the European parliamentarians mention those who are now called the alternative fuels : E85 bioethanol, LPG, synthetic gasoline, or even hydrogen in a heat engine.

E85, LPG, synthetic gasoline, hydrogen: good arguments to put forward

However, these fuels have good arguments to make. E85, for example, is, according to the industry and by Europe’s own admission, much greener to produce than conventional unleaded. Coming from vegetable agriculture, it is also considered by some to be renewable. LPG is also considered more ecological. Finally, there are the fuels under study, such as synthetic gasoline, pushed in particular by Porsche, and hydrogen used as fuel in a heat engine, which Toyota is currently considering.

Alternative fuels only for the occasion from 2035?

Fuels which, on paper, already allow reduce the ecological impact cars currently circulating, while reducing the bill at the pump, especially for E85 and LPG. A strong argument in these very difficult times of the fuel price crisis. We therefore imagine that these fuels could develop by 2035. But as it is, they won’t be able to touch than used vehicles after this date. The latter will not, it should be remembered, be banned after 2035. Gradually converting the aging car fleet to fuels considered cleaner could be an alternative way used by governments to minimize the impact of the measure.

For their part, manufacturers like Porsche with its synthetic gasoline, and Toyota with hydrogen, are probably not going to abandon their work. But to continue to sell thermal cars after 2035, manufacturers will have to be able to prove that they are “good”. 0 shows“, which is easier said than done…
